Rumor: Red Dead Redemption 2 map leaks online

Red Dead Redemption has been a fan favorite ever since it launched back in 2010 and since then, fans have been hoping & praying for a sequel. However, with all the recent rumors, no one could tell if it will become official or not, until now that is.

 

Earlier today, the reported Red Dead Redemption 2 map was leaked online. It was first spotted on NeoGaf by user Mideon that claims he received it from a source he will not mention. Soon after, the image was taken down, but by then it was too late and the image was scattered across the internet.

 

TechRadar followed up on the rumored map by stating that the “map is indeed the real deal” from a source close to the development of the new Red Dead game.

 

Take a look at the screenshot down below:

 

 

TechRadar’s source not only confirms that this is a very recent, and a real copy of the map, but also confirms that instead of a proper sequel, the game will be a prequel. The lack of railroad tracks matches the claim of a prequel title.

 

However, despite the missing railroads, it looks like a new gameplay feature will include boat travel. As you can see in the picture above, the right side is filled with little islands which will presumably be able to explore either by boat or swimming. The game is “supposedly” taking place a little more East than the original game, as you can see from the image down below, there is a lot of similarities between the two maps.

 

 

There has yet to be any official word from Rockstar on the rumored Red Dead Redemption 2, but if the rumors are to be true then we will be seeing the announcement at E3 2016. But we have are reasons on why all these RDR rumors are most likely fake, click here to read more on that.

 

Let us know in the comments below if you like the idea of a prequel Red Dead Redemption instead of a sequel!

Bioshock creative director's next project is an interactive Twilight Zone movie

Ken Levine, the creative director of some of the most critically acclaimed games — Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite, will be heading a new project that heavily involves science fiction and mystery.

 

In a recent interview with Wired, Levine announced that he will be writing and directing an interactive live-action film based off the classic sci-fi series, The Twilight Zone. 

 

“Playing my games, you can probably tell Twilight Zone is something I grew up with,” Levine says. “They speak to a larger truth. They’re morality plays, fables, and often they’re about a character who is going through an experience that’s central to their life but also speaks to a larger part of the human condition. I don’t think [Rod] Serling, at the beginning, set out to be a science-fiction writer. But he found that this is a great medium to do metaphor.”

 

The game-film hybrid will be partnering with Interlude, a company known its interactive video technology, which "lets users seamlessly move between multiple streams of video." You might know the company best known from the Hulk vs Ant-Man Super Bowl commercial.

 

Levine will still be keeping his regular job at Take-Two Interactive where he and his team is “working diligently” on its next game. It is still unknown if his next game will  be based in the Bioshock universe or not, but it was spotted a while back that the unannounced title is planning on utilizing features similar to Borderland and Destiny, as well as building a semi-open world for it. 

 

Knowing Levine from his previous work, viewers can expect the Twilight Zone film to have some crazy plot twists and an ending that will have you pondering for weeks to come. However, at the moment there are no details on what the film will be centered around and Levine doesn’t plan to talk about it as it "would kind of spoil it."
