But, the internet is brimming with a myriad of reports and leaks creating more hype around "Red Dead Redemption 2".
This looks to be a fun addition, one that follows the Doomsday Heist update, the biggest yet to GTA Online.
Now, data miners have uncovered bits of code in The Doomsday Heist that seem to be related to Red Dead Redemption 2. Sign up to the Rockstar Games Social Club to get access to the Double Action Revolver Head Shot Challenge.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is now sporting a "Spring 2018" release date creeping ever closer, and as such developer Rockstar has announced details of a small crossover bonus for fans of its previous game, Grand Theft Auto Online. The chest was marked with a company name and logo, Boles Overland Stagecoach Co., which players also spotted in a Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer.
The handwritten note mentioning treasure. The treasure belonged to a family that was torn apart by it, until one member hid it, presumably in the grave. Image provided by Team Guru. Much to their delight, they discovered yet-to-be-released cars and planes, and even items that seem to hint at a revolver from "Red Dead Redemption". These assets will be used in an upcoming mission, which will send players off to find a "gold-plated six shooter".
Finding the revolver will involve visiting around 20 different locations across Los Santos. Years ago, GTA players found an unmarked grave on the eastern coast of the map.
According to the data miners, this new mission is controlled by server side files that Rockstar can easily update - but it doesn't appear to be live yet.
Rumored to make an appearance in late 2016,"Red Dead Redemption 2" was officially confirmed to release in fall 2017, but this time frame was pushed back, and "RDR2" is now expected to hit the store shelves in spring 2018.
