The 'Red Dead Redemption 2' gameplay teaser trailer dropped, and it's gorgeous

UPDATE: Rockstar Games officially announced "Red Dead Redemption 2," coming next fall.

ORIGINAL STORY: You might have seen this simple tweet floating around.

What's going on here?

The tweet is the logo for Rockstar Games, the company responsible for the extremely successful "Grand Theft Auto" series, and also a very popular Western-themed shooter called "Red Dead Redemption."

But the last GTA game was released in 2013, and it's still getting regular updates. RDR came out in 2010. 

Obviously, both photos are very, very red. (And the painting looks kinda Western-y.)

That's all we have to go on? 

Well, a map that reportedly was the game map for the RDR sequel was released back in April. And as Eurogamer reports, Rockstar Games' parent company, Take-Two Interactive, called the "Red Dead" series a "permanent franchise" in May.

But it's just a game, right?

Yes, but it was named the Game of the Year at Spike TV's Video Game Awards Show, and boasts a whopping score of 95/100 on Metacritic, a reviewer aggregation site.

OK, but what else could be going on here?

Pocket-lint identified a few other things that could teased in these photos.

For one, "Red Dead Revolver," the prequel to "Redemption," was made available for the PlayStation 4  for the first time recently. Alternately, it could be a sign that Redemption could be coming to the system, since it's already backwards-compatible for the Xbox One. 

Here's a look at how excited people are getting.

That's not an average Twitter user. That's a brand getting that excited.

This might go a little too far.

Some weren't satisfied by just the photo.

This sums it up pretty concisely.
