Red Dead Redemption 2 has been in the rumor mill for a long time now. In spite of all the controversies and leaks, Rockstar has so far been silent.
Earlier this year, we received several reports about a prequel setting and HD remake combo which was traded with an alleged map that showed us a new area to explore. Connecting all these dots with the latest E3 list of Twitter accounts which includes Rockstar, we seem to think that maybe RDR could actually make a return in one form or the other.
Another potential source of information was found on a website consisting about the work of a former Rockstar employee that features an image of what could possibly be from Red Dead Redemption 2, the website also consisted a couple of other images related to the former employee’s work on the Grand Theft Auto line up.
Although it’s almost impossible to jump to any conclusions at this point in time, but we here are the few possible assumptions we can make out of all these details:
a) These screenshots could be the real deal, Rockstar really is making a sequel to the infamous Red Dead Redemption.
b) It could be a HD remake with minor expansions for the Xbox One and PS4 to satisfy its old time fans.
c) It is fake and everyone should just wait for the Watch Dogs 2 by Ubisoft.
There are tons of opinions about the images, floating around the internet. Optimistic fans point out that the screenshot has Chromatic Aberrations which were not included as a part of the original RDR’s lighting system. The location was also not found in the former title and the screenshot looks professional enough to strike an impression that it’s not fake.
On the other side, we also have people claiming that it’s an impressively remastered version of the original RDR, built from scratch using the latest Rage Engine.
But in spite of all this, critics point out that the screenshot consists of different types of clouds rendered in a single screenshot.
Maybe it’s fake, maybe it’s not! What do you think about all this? Do let us know in the comments section below!
