Adding fuel to that fire today is an overhead schematic for what is reportedly the game map to be featured in Rockstar’s yet-to-be-announced sequel. First reported by TechRadar (via NeoGAF), the image is seemingly a “very recent art direction map” which itself comes by way of “a source close to the development of the new Red Dead game has confirmed to us the map is indeed the real deal.”
At the time of going to press, neither Rockstar nor Take-Two have announced anything official and given how secretive both parties can be in the lead up to an official unveiling, don’t expect that radio silence to break anytime soon.
Even still, the alleged map in question does feature elements from the original Red Dead Redemption – namely the Great Plains area, among others – leading us to believe that today’s leak holds a fraction of truth at the very least.
Red Dead Redemption 2 continues to be as elusive as ever but at least now, finally, we’re beginning to catch wind that the sequel is indeed in the bowels of development over at Rockstar. Will we see an official unveiling at E3? Who knows. But for now, you can scan your peepers over the purported in-game map below and decide for yourself whether TechRadar’s leak is indeed accurate.
