Check out this image which appeared on the internet, it is said to be the map for Red Dead Redemption 2’s game world has appeared online. Initially, the image was posted on NeoGAF by user Mideon, who later removed it, but not before it was saved and reposted. It looks incredible and if this map is legit it proves that the game is actually in the making.
The game, which has not yet been announced by Red Dead Redemption developer Rockstar, is reportedly a prequel. The absence of a railroad, which was prominently featured in Redemption, is further evidence of this, the site says. However, it’s worth noting that map has “railroad” in its key.
Techradar claims “a source close to the development of the new Red Dead game has confirmed to us the map is indeed the real deal.” According to the site the image is “a very recent art direction map.”
The image, which you can see above, features the Great Plains, where the Blackwater area from the first game was located. Additionally, numerous islands can be seen on the outskirts, indicating the player may be able to either swim, or take a boat out to new locations.
Another interesting area featured in the map is New Bordeaux (bottom right). This is the area where Mafia 3, distributed by Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive, is set. It takes place in 1968.
