Is This the Map for Red Dead 2?

The map for Red Dead Redemption 2 has reportedly leaked via NeoGaf user Mideon, who says they got the map from an undisclosed source.

Mideon was apparently asked to take the attached photo down, which he immediately did, but other threads have since posted it back up, and the maps have made their way around the internet, as seen below:

If you’ll notice, the bottom left corner of the map shows the Great Plains. This area was in the top right of the Red Dead Redemption map, so it would seem that the second game will take place just North East from where John Marston played out his bloody tale. The map also has caravan camps scattered around, which means there will be a lot more activity in the world. This suggests a prequel, as Red Dead’s theme focussed on how the old West was dying.

This map is convincing and could indeed be the map for a Red Dead 2. We’ll just have to wait and see.
