Red Dead Redemption 2 or Remastered Screenshot Leaked? Looks Legit Due To Presence Of Chromatic Aberration


It seems like we are surely going to hear something related to Red Dead Redemption video game franchise from Rockstar Games at E3 2016, and it is going to be either a Red Dead Redemption 2 or a Red Dead Redemption Remaster. The following screenshot was posted on Reddit a few days ago, it was taken from an environment artists portfolio. This artist was used to work at Rockstar San Diego until July 2015.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Screenshot Leaked

The screenshot seems to be running on an updated version of RAGE Engine, as it features chromatic aberration, good foliage. Reddit user “KDotMatrix” made some interesting discovery in the screenshots, you can read his report below:

“I’d note the chromatic aberration on the poles and other objects in the image, a small point of contention in GTA V. Chromatic aberration has become increasingly prevalent in modern triple-A games as of late. Here’s a screenshot that shows the effect in the PC version of GTA V. This was also present on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

Some people on GTA forums are saying that this could be a photo from the development of RDR, but chromatic aberration wasn’t present in the game, as it was running on an older version of the RAGE engine. Therefore, this most likely isn’t concept art from that time period.

I believe this is the first “Red Dead 2/R__” screenshot, as there isn’t a house in Thieves’ Landing from RDR that matches this one. Thieves’ Landing, or its humble beginnings, would be present on the leaked map that circulated the web earlier this year. While it is possible that this could be from a significantly reworked remaster of RDR, odds are this is the new game.”
