Very excited for this. RDR is one of my all time favorite games and when Rockstar posted two teaser images the last couple days I was certain this was what they were leading up to. I'm a little disappointed that the title of the game just adds a 2 to the original game's title, but that's really not important. It does feel a little weird since this is rumored to be a prequel and the image above lends credence to that rumor, but again not super important.
As for the game, we'll find out more on thursday when the trailer hits, but today's image gives a lot of clues as to what the game might be about. I am pretty sure that it will be a prequel that follows the original Dutch's Gang and their exploits throughout West Elizabeth. The central figure in the image certainly looks like John Marston and the man to his right looks very much like Bill Williamson (the jacket and hat he's wearing are almost identical to those he wears in RDR). Go play RDR if you haven't and you'll understand why this has to be a prequel. As for the only other confirmed members of Dutch's Gang at that time, there's Dutch himself (who could be the man on the left of the central figure), Javier Escuella (who actually doesn't appear to be in this image based on his outfit from RDR), and Abigail Marston (who again isn't in this image).
Suffice it to say I am super excited and can't wait for thursday much less a whole year for the game to come out.
