Red Dead Redemption 2 teaser artwork

[Update]: Red Dead Redemption 2 has been officially announced!

Three years have passed since GTA V first appeared, and ever since then Rockstar has been completely silent about their future projects. While the silent treatment is still ongoing, the Rockstart Twitter account just recently started posting some rather intriguing images.

What exactly these images are, Rockstar didn't explain, but I think its fairly safe to assume that they are teasing some sort of Red Dead Redemption announcement. Why else would they be entirely red and quite obviously western themed?

Most interestingly of all, however, these two images are here only a couple of months after a supposed leak of Red Dead Redemption 2's map. Naturally, this leak is completely unconfirmed and quite possibly fake, but its timing is pretty damn immaculate if so. On the other hand, if the leak is completely true, then we might just have a prequel on our hands, rather than Red Dead Redemption 2. Whatever the case may be, the world could certainly use more Red Dead games, and hopefully on the PC as well this time!

And finally, here's a glimpse at what the new map might look light. Keep in mind that this is all leaked material, so even if its completely true its highly unlikely the released map will be exactly like this, but its still nice to speculate over tiny, blurry images.
