At the moment a rumor claiming that a Red Dead Redemption sequel will be announced at this year’s E3 and released in 2017, is making its way around the web. Said rumor originated at a website called Fraghero, which states they have received an email sent by an anonymous person, who claims an ex-Rockstar employee told them about this sequel. The email also revealed some details about this supposed sequel; it will be called Red Dead Redemption 2: Legends of the West, will feature more than one playable character, and its world will also be larger than in the first game.
The email did not just contain information about the sequel, as it also stated that the original Red Dead Redemption is being remastered, and that this remaster will launch on an undisclosed date this year. Please note that this rumor is not the most credible one we have ever received. An anonymous email claiming to have information from an ex-Rockstar employee sounds a little shady to say the least, but it could also very well be true. After all, it has been six years since the original Red Dead Redemption was released. A remaster could explain why Rockstar doesn’t allow Red Dead Redemption to be made backwards compatible on Xbox One, but that is about the biggest piece of solid evidence we have that these rumors could be real.
What do you think? Will we get to see a Red Dead Redemption 2 at this year’s E3? Can we expect a remaster of the original game later this year? Let us know in the comments below!
