One of gaming;’s worst kept secrets has now officially been unveiled. Bethesda today released the Rage 2 teaser trailer, which was leaked late yesterday.
The Rage 2 teaser trailer is a longer version of what we saw tweeted yesterday and features live-action actors in a variety of weird and whacky post-apocalyptic neon costumes.
Rage 2 is the sequel to the 2011 game that was the last game helmed by John Carmack at id Software and was developed using the id Tech 5 engine.

After the success of Rage a sequel was planned but was cancelled in 2012 as id chose instead to focus on DOOM.
Now, Rage 2 is back and better than ever. According to Bethesda;
Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together a true open world FPS experience where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.
Even though the Rage 2 teaser trailer was officially released, the leaks for Rage 2 haven’t stopped. When Bethesda launched the Rage 2 page on its website it revealed that the game was being developed by both id Software and Avalanche Studios.
Avalanche has experience with open-world games having developed Just Cause 3. It is also familiar with post-apocalyptic settings having developed Mad Max.
Bethesda responded in hilarious fashion to the latest leak, with the Rage Twitter account posting the tweet below.
