An image of what 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.
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 (below) is “a very recent art direction map.”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.
Another interesting area featured in the map is New Bordeaux. This is the area where Mafia 3, distributed by Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive, is set. It takes place in 1968.
