Many fans were expecting Rockstar to present "Red Dead Redemption" as they hinted on a big splash at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016. However, the E3 ended without any announcements on the much-anticipated "Red Dead Redemption" or even a new title of "Grand Theft Auto"(GTA).

Violent Footage And Massacre In "Red Dead Redemption"

As earlier reported in GamenGuide, there were rumors that Rockstar will announce the release date and a new trailer for "Red Dead Redemption" at this year's E3. However, this was not the case.

Fans can't help but wonder what happened to Rockstar's big announcement. According to rumors, the trailer for "Red Dead Redemption" contained violent images showing some tragic massacre, IdigitalTimes reported.

Speculations said that "Red Dead Redemption" contained violent scenes similar to what happened in Orlando. Out of respect for the terrible tragedy in Orlando, the game developers decided not to reveal the trailer.

Sony Denied Rumors

However, the VP of Third Party Relations & Developer Technology Group at PlayStation denied the speculations, PlayStationLifestyle reported.

In a tweet posted by Adam Boyes, he claimed that the content of the presentation was not modified or changed. In fact, "Red Dead Redemption" was not part of their E3 presentation right from the start.

While fans may have jumped into conclusions, GTA tipster and YouTuber MrBossFTW pointed out that Rockstar does not need a big invent to create a stir in the gaming world.

The upcoming sequel for "Red Dead Redemption" is much talked about even if it's not yet due for release until 2017.

So that means, Take-Two's "big" E3 presence remains a mystery. Stay tuned for more updates about "Red Dead Redemption" here at GamenGuide.
