It seems like it was just yesterday, but in truth, it has already been six long years since the players got a hold of the video game titled "Red Dead Redemption." Now that the second installment for the franchise of the video game is set for release, it is interesting to know what is new with this new game.

Forbes recently reported that a map for "Red Dead Redemption 2" was leaked. The leaked map both lends credence to the prequel theory and gives the players a hint of what kind of setting they would be playing in.

The said prequel theory refers to the prediction that since the poster for "Red Dead Redemption 2" featured cowboys, it is suggested that it may be a prequel that moves back in time which is a wilder frontier that what was dealt with in the original "Red Dead Redemption."

The Guardian delved on a much specific prediction. According to them, "Red Dead Redemption 2" will take place before the 1911 setting of the original "Red Dead Redemption." It is believed to jump back to up to 100 years which is a more racially charged period in the history of the United States of America. Basically, the setting for "Red Dead Redemption 2" is more powerful.

The possible rationale for a different perspective in "Red Dead Redemption 2" suggests that it would probably give a fascinating backdrop for a Rockstar narrative. This is because during the mentioned time placement, there was really a prejudice towards the Native Americans.

These just make "Red Dead Redemption 2" all the more exciting and challenging. "Red Dead Redemption 2" is set for release in the fall season of 2017 on gaming consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No specific date was announce yet but the hype train for this video game is already starting since the hints being dropped are very intriguing.
