Homage to The Magnificent Seven?
Rockstar Games released an image yesterday of their logo but with a red-tinged background. Naturally, this led to a lot of speculation as to whether it was teasing Red Dead 3, Red Dead Redemption 2 or some kind of Red Dead sequel. It’s a stretch based on such a simple image but there you go.
However, with its most recent tease, Rockstar does seem to be hinting towards something Western-related. Its latest tweet showcases seven silhouettes against the setting sun. This image actually resembles The Magnificent Seven, recently remade in Hollywood and well-known for its Western characters.
The question is: What does it all mean? If there is going to be a new Red Dead title, will it be some kind of multi-man take on the Western genre? Given the developer’s online bent over the past few years with Grand Theft Auto Online, it certainly seems possible.
