Rockstar Games working on follow up game to GTA V, to be "revealed soon"

Rockstar Games is "hard at work on future projects" to be "revealed soon" according to the latest financial reports from parent company Take-Two. The studio's last title was the hugely successful Grand Theft Auto 5 in 2013 and since then they've been working on PC, PS4 and Xbox One version of the title, in addition to producing new content for GTA Online.
The financial report references Rockstar's future project in a section referring to the next financial year, which doesn't begin until 1st April 2017 and means Rockstar's next title probably won't be released until that period at the earliest. This is probably correct as Rockstar like to give you a year to salivate on a game before it actually surfaces.
If I had to take a stab in the dark, I'd say it was probably the rumoured Red Dead Redemption 2, one of Rockstar's most beloved titles but one that hasn't made it over to the PC or next generation consoles. Other rumours include a Red Dead Redemption remaster, and a second re-release of Bully, but if I had to make a judgement call I'd suggest RDR2 was on the way.
Of course, a small part of me says: what if this is the return of Agent? The game has been sat in development for several years, with the last trace of it being 2 trademarks registered in 2013. A guy can dream, right?
There's no word on whether or not Rockstar will appear at E3 next month, although they very rarely attend, but if they did it's likely they'd show up during Sony's press conference. This year, Take-Two's list of upcoming games for the financial year (which ends on the 31st March 2017) includes Mafia 3, WWE2k17, NBA2k17 and Civilisation 6. We're bound to hear about a couple more at E3 next month.
