QUICK! There's a new Red Dead Redemption 2 image

Rockstar just posted a new image that has to be Red Dead Redemption 2 (opens in new tab). It shows seven characters, suggesting strongly this isn't a remaster of the previous game.

Much like the last Red Dead Redemption 2 image (opens in new tab) appeared, it's now the main picture on Rockstar's main site, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. 

There's not a lot more we can read into this for the time being. It's unlikely that Red Dead Redemption 2 (opens in new tab) could be a prequel about Dutch's gang - the group John Marston did bad things with before the previous game started - as that only had five members and would involve Marston being evil. Might it be Marston's son who took over at the end of Redemption with an all new crew in tow? Or a completely different gang all together? 

One other thing to think about: given the success of GTA Online, the group shot could be suggesting an online focused game with a gang to be populated with a mix AI or players. 

We'll just have to wait and see when the next surprise drops.
