It might finally be time for use to dig out our virtual saddles and gun holsters.

In its financial report for fiscal 2016, publisher Take-Two noted that developer Rockstar Games is working on “exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.” The company is behind some of the most successful games of all time, including Grand Theft Auto V.

Fans expect the studio’s next release to be a sequel to Red Dead Redemption, the open-world Western that came out back in 2010. That game shipped over 14 million copies for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We seem due for a sequel. In fact, a supposed map for such a game leaked last month.

Of course, Take-Two specifically said “projects,” indicating that Rockstar is working on more than one game (GTA V came out in 2013, after all). We’ll have to wait to see exactly what’s going on, but we might find out more during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles next month.
