    Super stoked about this. Can't wait. And its only a year wait as well! I was fearful this was gonna just be an announcement that they were starting production and the game would be 2 to 3 years away

    About damn freaking time. Partially bought my system 2 years ago because I was worried this was going to be announced at E3 then.

    The map was posted to NeoGaf by someone claiming to have received it from a source, before hastily pulling it down. But this being the internet, the map had already been immortalised, although many commenters questioned its legitimacy.

    A source close to the development of the new Red Dead game has now confirmed to us that the map is indeed the real deal, revealing that this is a "very recent" art direction map for the upcoming title.

    They also confirmed that the game will be set before the events of Redemption, and that the new map is just east of the one that featured in Red Dead Redemption.

    If you look at the bottom left (click to zoom) you'll see the Great Plains, home to the Blackwater settlement that sits at the top right of the Red Dead Redemption map - so you can see how the two come together. The lack of a railroad in the Great Plains, which featured in RDR, also points to this being earlier in the timeline.

    The new map also reveals that there will be caravan camps scattered around, again suggesting this will be a less occupied West. The overarching theme of Red Dead Redemption was the "death of the West", so a prequel, rather than a sequel, makes sense.

    The inclusion of New Bordeaux - bottom right - is another interesting inclusion. Mafia 3, which will be published by Red Dead Redemption publisher Take-Two Interactive later this year, will be based in New Bordeaux, a fictional location based on New Orleans. It will be interesting to see how much crossover there will be between the two games, but it also suggests we'll get some swampy areas in Red Dead 2.

    We're also interested to see the inclusion of islands. Although you weren't able to swim in Red Dead Redemption, the map makes us wonder if it's a feature that Rockstar has added to the next game.

    While it will make a bunch of money, I think it's a bad move by Rockstar

    How so? Because it's not an original title?

    A few reasons. One, I think the first game was so well done it did not need to be watered down by a sequel. Two, I felt like RDR was a horse riding simulator at times, how are they going to change up the second game to make it feel fresh, including the story?

    I'll end up buying it I am sure, I just would have loved to see a new experience from Rockstar (or another Max Payne)

    I think they go the GTA V route and do multiple characters, that would be my guess. Outside of that I would hope/imagine they'll make fast travel easier.

    The trailer shows a Magnificent 7 vibe. Maybe you play each of 7 characters?

    I feel like you are answering your own doubt to a certain extent. The first game was very well done but had its flaws. The good thing about Rockstar is that they put time behind their games. There will be 7 to 7.5 years between games.

    As far as horse time is concerned, I spent a ton of horse time in Witcher 3 and it wasn't an issue because this gen's hardware makes the scenery more diverse and interesting. I'm not a graphics whore but don't be surprised if the increased tech helps the downtime.

    Really looking forward to this release. Skyrim remastered and Dishonored 2 should tide me over until it's out.

    This and the Last of Us 2 are my most anticipated games. Playing Watch Dogs 2 best game I played in awhile, fun to play.

    Last of Us 2 will be epic. The first installment is one of the best games of all time IMO.
