Since the release of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games has been under the radar. Without any kind official information, the fans are wondering what the studio has been up to since GTA V.
A couple of weeks ago, a Reddit user named WColt aroused the fans with rumors, calming a release of Red Dead Redemption Remastered.
WColt released what many are calling a screenshot from the remastered version of Red Dead Redemption. The Reddit user was poking around ex-Rockstar employ website and found an interesting screenshot inside a password protected folder. Not knowing the password WColt grabbed the visible image URL and opened it with a browser. Noticing the higher quality and resolution the user realized the image is not from the original game.
Shortly after, the findings of WColt were confirmed by other users. They noticed the slight, but important differences between the image and the original game as well. Some of the users believe the screenshot is from a version of Read Dead Redemption running on the engine seen in Grand Theft Auto V.

The E3 announcements, followed up by an enormous level of enthusiasm coming from Rockstar team, leads us to a possibility where one of the titles could be Red Dead Redemption remastered and a proper sequel.
