Rockstar has been doing a great job of keeping everything under wraps when it comes to their highly anticipated sequel "Red Dead Redemption 2". The developer has been very quiet ever since it released the first trailer for the open-world Western adventure a few months ago. However, some users of online message boards have reportedly stumbled upon a screenshot that gives gamers a little peek at the unfinished game.

The supposedly leaked screenshot that was posted shows a view from inside a structure that looks out toward town. A man is shown leaning against the front porch with a few NPCs and a couple of horses. A chapel can also be seen a little far off on top a knoll. Game Rant notes that the image could be a shot of its actual in-game build of "Red Dead Redemption 2". However, there is also a chance that the image is fake and was just a brilliant work on Photoshop.

Gamers are advised to remain skeptical about the leaked screenshot for "Red Dead Redemption 2". Several users from GTAForums are currently trying to determine the authenticity of the shared photo. Most have declared that it is very difficult to evaluate the image. Until it is proven to be fake, the screenshot remains as the only available media that gives gamers a glimpse of the supposed graphics of the Western open-world sequel.

Other speculations also claim that "Red Dead Redemption 2" might feature a first-person view option, just like the one featured in "Grand Theft Auto V". The developer has not issued any statement about the leaked screenshot and its authenticity. Most experts also point out that the lack of polish seems to indicate that the image is from an early build of the game, says VG24/7.

Despite the number of gamers who believe that the leaked screenshot is legit, most gamers are content to wait for Rockstar's official announcement this June at E3 2017. It was previously rumored that "Red Dead Redemption 2" is scheduled to accompany the official reveal of Microsoft's Project Scorpio, as reported by Gamenguide. The excitement generated of the supposedly authentic screenshot just proves that the sequel is one of the most highly anticipated titles for 2017.
