It is still unknown whether Rockstar Games is planning to release a new "Read Dead Redemption" game with a completely new story, or the company is just trying to tease the gaming community with a re-worked version of the classic title.
In April, an image believed to be that of a map for a new "Red Dead Redemption" game surfaced on several blogsites and gaming forums, according to GameSpot. At that time, a source close to the development team of the new game confirmed that the image is "a very recent art direction map." The leaked image added more to the speculation that a new game is indeed under development and could hit the shelves before the end of the year.
The original "Red Dead Redemption" title was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in May 2010.
