You know that Red Dead Revolver sequel that's been teased and rumored since 2005? Well, it's still alive and kicking -- it's called Red Dead Redemption, is being developed by Rockstar San Diego, and it's scheduled for a fall 2009 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. 

According to Rockstar Games, who announced the game today: [Red Dead Redemption is] "set at the turn of the 20th century when the lawless and chaotic badlands began to give way to the expanding reach of government and the spread of the Industrial Age.  The story of former outlaw, John Marston, Red Dead Redemption takes players on a great adventure across the American frontier."

The utilizes the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), the same technology used to power all of Rockstar's next-gen games, including Grand Theft Auto IV and Midnight Club: Los Angeles. Redemption features an open world, letting players explore frontier towns, prairies populated by wildlife, and more. 

"The seamless combination of breathtaking beauty and intense action, all woven together with strong plot lines in a massive, vibrant, rural environment is mind-blowing," said Rockstar's founder, Sam Houser. "We think this game helps to push the limits of what an open-world gaming experience can be."

Grand Theft Auto IV: Wild West Edition? Sign me up, pardner.
