Developer Rockstar will be one of the gaming companies to attend the highly-anticipated Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016, where it is rumored to announce "Red Dead Redemption 2."
The "Grand Theft Auto" developer hasn't said a word about the rumored sequel even though leaks about it have been popping up, far more frequently in the past few days as the convention nears.
A Reddit user came across a screenshot believed to be from "Red Dead Redemption 2." The image came from a profile of a former Rockstar employee and featured a house that other Reddit users claim is nothing like the one on the original, promptly making them think it has to be from the sequel.
Another Reddit user claims that Rockstar's website was updated to prepare for the big reveal of "Red Dead Redemption 2." Interestingly, as the tipster scoured through the coding, he realized that the structure of the website also makes room for another "Red Dead Redemption" game.
This fuelled rumors that Rockstar has also prepared a remastered version of the previous installment of beloved open world, western action-adventure to be playable on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One although another user has pointed out that this is not the case as far as how the information was obtained and understood.
"Red Dead Redemption" was available on the Xbox One Backward Compatibility site for a while but was quickly removed. It may be because Rockstar has a bigger plan for the title if this report is any indication.
"Red Dead Redemption" was released back in 2010 to critical claim. The title even won the award for the VGX Game of the Year. Fans have been waiting ever since for a sequel, but Rockstar was silent all throughout.
However, Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive has already said that "Red Dead Redemption" is a "permanent" franchise like "GTA" so fans will be seeing more of it in the coming years.
A leaked map said to be from "Red Dead Redemption 2," Tall Trees and Great Plains will be featured again, which means that players will be back in Blackwater.
"Red Dead Redemption 2" is expected to be announced on E3 scheduled June 14 to 16 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
