What's This?

Sony press conference at E3 didn’t seem to appeal to its fans as the much expected Red Dead Redemption 2 and upgraded PS4 Neo were not even confirmed to be in development.


While gamers expected Take-two to drop the news or perhaps even hint during their appearance, fans were again disheartened for a false expectation. But, recent development suggests we can expect a reveal this year.

According to Daily Star, the most expected announcement from RockStar and Take-two was set-aside during E3 due to the unfortunate incident at Orlando. While it may seem as the right thing to do, this rumor has been shattered by a recent update.

As we traced back the rumor back to its origin, PlayStation LifeStyle had speculated this theory initially based on a tweet. However, the message directed to the person, Adam Boyes (VP of Third Party Relations & Developer Technology Group at PlayStation) has clarified that “this is not true.” Check the tweet below.

New Red Dead Redemption Sequel Rumors Dispelled

Earlier in May, Forbes suggested Take-two’s earning report confirmed that Rockstar is on the verge of revealing Red Dead Redemption 2. To quote, “Rockstar Games is of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.”

It may seem as we can still instill hope in the PlayStation Community. But, this earning report was earlier believed to be directed at an update for GTA online. Regrettably, it is true. Although fans stand stranded due to Rockstar’s delay, Mafia III would soon cover up the agony caused by Red Dead Redemption 2.

Hopefully, Rockstar would reveal Neo along with the much awaited sequel before E3 2017.
