What's worse is that we might get this dragged until tomorrow or Tuesday, as that's when press releases are generally made.

When R* made their site all black, how long did it take until they officially confirmed it was V?

I tried some dirty edits to see what's in the background... and some kind of rust?

Newswire background atm, without the R* logo: www.rockstargames.com/img/bg.jpg

If you zoom out far enough, you can make out trees in the middle and on the right. On the lower right, what looks like wooden fences of a dock (or at the very least wooden fences).

 

Below the center tree it looks like another dock, and the rest of the center is water reflecting the dock, but I'm not entirely sure about that.

 

Reposting for new page.

It was later in the day IIRC, but that was Wednesday, not Sunday.

 

 

Also, they seem to be using this long string of letters in their links. Wonder if it's something.

Years of watching clickbait youtube videos with faint glimmers of hope are finally over now.

let's just hope this isn't the start of a year-long advertising campaign

Still, a year's worth would be nothing next to what we endured for GTA V. Especially the PC version.

 

Speaking of which, please, please, PLEASE Rockstar adapt this kind of design philosophy for the new Red Dead. I don't want to imagine a repeat of GTA V's PC version.

I knew it once take two got mafia 3 out the door we would get an announcement from R*. They didn't want anything to get in the way of the hype they were building for mafia.

Ayyyy, I've now migrated to sh*tposting in the RD section since it looks like an announcement is FINALLY UPON US. I have years of experience sh*tposting in the GTAV section.

 

I jest. I'm just here to discuss and witness the glorious game that is RD. I hope we get an unveil soon. And finally, I hope this doesn't take years to release like V. That was painful. So, so painful. From all that silence to all those delays.

 

I find it funny R* did this on a Sunday. In all likihood nothing to do with it, but Westworld airs on HBO every Sunday and it's been said that they took inspiration from RDR on the series. I wouldn't be surprised if R* tried to capitalize on this with the next RD announcement. Westworld is quite popular right now and has a lot of press, etc.

Next-gen and PC architectures are very similar, there is no reason for them to delay PC for technical reasons. They've proved their worth with GTA V PC, which is actually the exact same build as the NG build, because it's easier to adapt. The only "excuse" they can come up with will be console sales money or exclusivity.

 

I wonder if the PC version will have DX12. Pleasedon'tbeUWP.

Yeah or a trailer that says a trailer is coming out. It's like their thing.

Could an announcement trailer be aired as a spot before/after Westworld?

They do it because they can. This will easily be the most hyped/anticipated game of the year.

Downloadable HD remaster for PS4, XBONE and PC. Upscaled badly to 1080p. Essentially a poorly done port. Riddled with graphics and sound issues, a series of mandatory patches will claim to fix these problems, but will instead just create new ones. It will be released on disc in almost two years from the whenever it was first available to download, when nobody wants it anymore and will cost as much as it did back in 2010.

Didn't know we were talking about Mafia 3's PC version in this topic.

 

(I still like that game tho)

I doubt it. I think that's something they would do on their own Newswire. They may even go the way they did with V, which was to do something like this; later in the day (I believe it was) have a countdown to the announcement trailer. Once the countdown got to zero, the announcement trailer released on their own website for V.

 

However, R* used to have TV spots air during popular shows that they took inspiration from or inspiration was taken from them. For instance, they used to air TV spots during Breaking Bad. But this was right before V's initial release in 2013.
