The "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date is not yet divulged by Rockstar. With the scarcity of details, it appears that patrons of the game developer are restless in looking for pieces of information about the upcoming video game.

According to Kotaku, fans of Rockstar have theorized that the "Red Dead Redemption 2" is the prequel of its predecessor. As a matter of fact, the posters on the GTA Forums indicated how much research the patrons of the video game have done just to prove this theory.

One piece of the puzzle that was found is a resume of an actor online who claims to have completed the motion capture for Dutch; a character who dies in the original "Red Dead Redemption." This character's presence in the upcoming game is somewhat a persuasive reason that the game is a prequel which tells the story of John Marston and his team before they have separated their ways.

In a separate report, Daily Express has learned that Rockstar has appointed Ethan Korver who is a former "Call of Duty" and "Far Cry 4" actor for the impending "Red Dead Redemption 2" The well-known video game voice artist even confirmed that he will play the role of a cowboy in the "Red Dead Redemption" sequel, but only in a background dimensions.

Korver posted on his Twitter account that he is actually a cowboy in the "Red Dead Redemption 2" but allegedly be unaccredited for it. "I don't know who gave me credit for the main cast on IMDB My character is a background character; not a main cast member," he further added.

As of now, there is still no concrete detail about the "Red Dead Redemption 2" launch date. Nevertheless, Rockstar will definitely reveal all the details about the upcoming video game as well as if it is really a prequel of the original "Red Dead Redemption."
