The follow-up to Rockstar's critically wild west epic, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a long time coming. Seriously, the original game was released in 2010 which may not necessarily seem like such a big deal, but in the scope of gaming eight years is a long time to wait.

Then it happened and the internet went nuts. Rockstar Games teased something simple on Twitter on October 16, 2016:

This tweet garnered 100,000+ retweets and about 175,000 likes in a matter of days, safely showing that fans were still excited about the series and the potential of the long-awaited game finally arriving. For nearly a year now, fans have been anxiously waiting to learn more about the anticipated sequel and dig into a new wild west adventure. With the release being delayed from Fall 2017 to Spring 2018, fans started getting worried, but with the release of the 2nd trailer reveal it sure looks like the wait is well worth it.

Check out the new trailer below:

Although it's short, there is a lot of material to get excited about as we approach the release and Twitter is already starting to show that there are gamers around the world who can't wait to experience Red Dead Redemption 2.

Even though we still have a few months until the game releases, it's exciting to see that so many fans are still excited about the franchise that revolutionized the western themed game world.
