Nothing is confirmed.


Ever since Rockstar’s Twitter account posted an image teasing a Red Dead sequel, people have been going nuts.

In an effort to glean a few more morsels of information, the source code of Rockstar’s website has been under siege and a Reddit user reported back with the news that they’d found the name Red Dead Retribution within it.

It turns out that it was a load of old twaddle.

The line of text merely refers to a URL that the original poster was trying to access and is nothing to do with Rockstar.

So bets are still open on what the name of the rumoured sequel will be. What’s your money on?
