It is known that Take Two Interactive has something “big” planned for E3 2016, but could it actually be Red Dead Redemption 2? A new rumor, based on an alleged email from one of the developers working on it, suggests that Take Two is actually going to announce the game at E3 and release it the following year.
Apparently, an anonymous person claims that the game has been in development since four years, and that now they are done with a large part of it which is why the developers wish to go public with the game.
All this is in accordance with Take Two CEO’s remarks from last year that Red Dead Redemption was a permanent franchise, and that Rockstar San Diego has been hiring extensively since the past couple of years.
A little more recently, Danny Ross an ex-Rockstar developer had also teased that Red Dead Redemption 2 was going to be Rockstar’s next video game release, but none of that adds to, or takes away from the rumor at hand where it is being suggested that the game has a large open world with multiple playable characters.
Could Take Take Two Interactive have taken the lead for that from the success of GTA 5? Only time will tell.
Parallel to this, the same alleged employee also reveals that a Red Dead Redemption remake for the PS4 and Xbox One is also being developed as we speak and that it will be released by the end of this year.
It will be worth mentioning here that although we are treating this news for what it actually is, i.e. just a rumor, every one should not go jumping with joy.
This is because Frag Hero, the website claiming to have received the email in question, doesn’t have a clear record when it comes to leaks.
Some time ago, a GamesTM issue 169 had an opinion piece suggesting that Call of Duty Ghosts 2 is one of the most wanted games right now, an image of that popped up online some months later and Frag Hero ran with it suggesting that Ghosts 2 had been leaked.
Any how, the Red Dead Redemption 2 news might actually turn out to be an altogether different story. If that is the case, E3 2016 will prove it.
