Red Dead Redemption 2 Set to be Released This Year? Will Have a Massive Map?

By Steff

There are reports that the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally going to be revealed this coming E3 2016. Leaks also suggest of a massive map that will include not only the western part of the US but also it's eastern parts. Set to be released this coming October? 

Because Red Dead Redemption has been such a success, Rockstar is now under pressure to make sure that the upcoming 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will surpass its predecessor. Whilst there's tons of 'spoilers' and rumors about the game, what could Rockstar do that can surpass the previous 'Red Dead Redemption'.

First there's the theory that 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will be set in Japan, no matter how genius of great the idea was, this will be far from the original feel of 'Red Dead Redemption' which is about the Old West. Since 'Red Dead Redemption 2' is set in the US, it is highly likely that 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will expound on this.

Since 'Red Dead Redemption' was set in the Western part of the US, a lot of Western US States actually; it is highly likely that 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will expand to the East as well. And when I say East, that' East of the United States of America. Rockstar doesn't really state the name of the States in the game but currently we have; Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Rocky Mountains, Dakota and of course Mexico.

'Red Dead Redemption' was set somewhere in time where the Old West was still lawless, and law was just starting to be implemented. In the game we'll see the arrival of the railroad at the opening of the game, but imagine the magnitude of the game if we can play 'Red Dead Redemption' all over the US?

We'll be able to see New York during those times, and it'll be great to have a whole concept of what the whole country used to be and how far we've come. When we think of the Old West and the beginning of the Industrial Revolution we get a concept that these two timeline are far apart when in reality the only difference is location, so if 'Red Dead Redemption 2' does this, we'll have a whole grasp of that.

There's still no release date for 'Red Dead Redemption 2', but it seems like we will be seeing it sometime this year. 

'Red Dead Redemption 2' is said to be released on next generation consoles; Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
