Red Dead Redemption 2: Leak hints towards long-awaited gameplay feature

A new leak suggests that a long-awaited feature might make its way to the story and online mode of RDR2.

A Twitter user @VideoTech_ identified some interesting files that hinted towards the return of ‘Director Mode’. This mode was last seen in GTA V back in 2015.

As the name suggests, the ‘Director Mode’ will enable the player to use and control any animal or character in the game. However, it is possible that some characters might still be unplayable.

The ‘Director Mode’ in Red Dead Redemption 2 will allow the player to control characters and possibly even horses that are an integral part of the game. But rumors suggest that Jack Marston will be an unplayable character.

‘Director Mode’ will also allow the players to generate creative content, the emergence of which we witnessed in GTA.

No word from Rockstar Games

As good as this sounds, Rockstar Games haven’t provided us with an official word yet. All of this is just conjecture right now.

Data miners have proven to be important figures in the modern age of the video game industry. However, we can never be sure until we get official word.

There is another important thing to consider. Even if these files point towards the return of ‘Director Mode’, not much can be said about its timeline.

It is possible that this update could feature in the next-gen consoles, considering GTA V will feature new content.

Whether or not ‘Director Mode’ comes to RDR2 eventually, it sure sounds exciting for the fans.
