RAGE 2 is releasing on Playstation 4, PC and Xbox One in 2019. Those are the only options, because you certainly don't manage to pull Rage 2 out of your hat unless you know for sure that's coming.

Here's everything we know about Rage 2! Avalanche were, of course, also responsible for the Mad Max game, so they've got experience in the area of open world wasteland-driving-insanity. The year is 2185, you name is Walker and you are the last Ranger of the Vineland. Bethesda has been making a habit of only announcing games when it is confident that they'll launch within a year. Bethesda's now confirmed to GameSpot that Rage 2 is a collaboration between Avalanche (of Just Cause fame) and id. Your character is robbed of his home and left for dead, but you must now "rage for justice and freedom". After an asteroid takes out 80% of the earth's population, bloodthirsty gangs prowl the open roads and a tyrannical organization called the Authority rules. As the last "Ranger," Walker aims to stop them using all the ridiculous tools in his arsenal. With forest, wasteland and swamp environments big enough for you to drive and fight in, the vastness is one thing that won't be missing from the upcoming Bethesda title.

FACTIONS & FOES - Fight against ferocious factions for control of the wasteland, each featuring a rogue's gallery of madmen, mutants, and monsters hungry for blood.
