"Red Dead Redemption 2" finally has a release date confirmed and a new leak exposes new juicy details about the upcoming sequel. Apparently, the upcoming game will follow the footsteps of GTA 5, and fans are nothing but excited.

Rockstar Games has announced the development of "Red Dead Redemption 2" early this year and they also released a teaser to further feed the hype. However, the game developer has been quite tight-lipped about the upcoming sequel to their successful wild west RPG. Luckily, a GTA 5 tipster came across some interesting clues about "Red Dead Redemption 2."

According to the tipster, there will be three new playable characters in "Red Dead Redemption 2." The latter will consist of members of John's former gang, however, John is not one of them as per Express. The new characters coming on board the upcoming sequel is enough to excited fans, but there is more.

In addition to the new characters fans will get to enjoy, the tipster also revealed that an online mode will be released for "Red Dead Redemption 2" in the future. This move is similar to what Rockstar Games did with GTA 5, whereas the online multiplayer feature was made available a significant amount of time after the game was launched. According to the tipster, "The online mode will release later on, just like with GTA 5. If it came out day one, nobody would play the single player and you f**** would crash the servers," he said.

Thanks to the tipster, fans have a lot more to look forward to in "Red Dead Redemption 2," including a great new story line which is promised to hold "incredible emotional depth" as well as new characters and a multiplayer mode coming in the future.
