Why Is The Original 'Red Dead Redemption' Map Hidden But Empty In 'Red Dead 2'?

The rumors are true, Red Dead Redemption 2 does have a huge chunk of the original game's map in it. But you never, ever go there, even though you can. Why?

It'll probably be used more for the online. Or possibly prequel DLC if Rockstar decides to make real DLC again.

Most likely for Red Dead Online since that area is completely empty so imagine that they add content in the area for the Online.

LongLiveKing76d ago

Perhaps like gta v, have online missions that could be completed ALONE..would be dank af..

John wasnt very familiar with the area in RDR 1 ... the first he visisted armadillo as far as i remember was in the events of the first game if the gang was in that region b4 it wouldnt be consistant with the first game

porkChop76d ago

Well RDR2 started with them having failed some mission on a boat in Blackwater. And the group is mostly new to the areas in RDR2. They're from the RDR1 region.

zahdab76d ago (Edited 76d ago )

They could have passed by the region but necessarly lived in it ... except for blackwater

SP DLC from R*? That's an amusing thought, but not likely, IMHO.

Last red dead had single player dlc. Right?

Christopher75d ago

@ninerguy1608: Since then, R* has changed their motives with support. They make a _ton_ off of shark cash, they're not going to abandon that with RDR2.

wwinterj75d ago

Agreed. It's for the online no doubt. It's disappointing R* didn't do much with it now but it is what it is.

That's exactly what I think they're going to do with it. Use the area for multiplayer and DLC.

I reckon dlc, and I reckon it will be a prequel that ends with the events in Blackwater.

LunaMoona76d ago

Complete Remake of Red Dead Redemption 1 within Red Dead Redemption 2 as DLC.

Matrix676d ago

As a single player dlc? That would be really massive!

Sunny_D76d ago

The definitely have the money and manpower.

Wow that’s crazy I told my brother that same theory just last night lol. I don’t think it’s going to happen but that would be freaking awesome

BrettAwesome76d ago

It would require the Mexico part, and that ain't in it

GHOSTxx42075d ago (Edited 75d ago )

There was a vid on youtube by mrbossftw and it shows how you can glitch to mexico and he says the whole layout is there but idk. Check it out

Id love to see a django themed dlc with a max payne bullet dive perk for the main character.

You go there in the epilogue

StonieWylder76d ago

If you read the article they say exactly that.

thejigisup76d ago

The description is wildly misleading "But you never, ever go there, even though you can." Can't read the piece now bc that's such a contradiction that I won't know what's truthful or not. Thanks for saving me the click guys.
