Rockstar hit the marketing jackpot with a Red Dead teaser.
Video game maker has triggered intense hype with a teaser for a new Red Dead game. The studio released yesterday an image that shows 7 cowboys on the horizon on red background. This kind of iconic image has now been hijacked by other upcoming video games. Dead Rising tweeted a version that shows silhouettes of zombies on the red sky and Final Fantasy XV shows four game characters with one waving.
The video game makers are not the only ones that have fun with Rockstar's Red Dead teaser. The red image has become a meme. A this point there is not even evidence that this teaser is for a new Red Dead game.
The Red Dead Redemption game was popular in 2010 and collected high scores in video game reviews back then. Red Dead Redemption was an open world, western action-adventure video game for the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Red Dead Redemption shipped over 14 million copies.
The new teaser shows seven cowboys on the horizon. Seven cowboys immediately triggers the connection to the classic Western "Magnificent Seven." Will the new Red Dead game be about hired guns saving town? Rumors suggest that the new Red Dead game is a prequel to Red Dead Redemption.
Some believe the teaser is for something new for GTA. Rockstar Games has not released any new details or teasers.
