Files discovered in Red Dead Redemption 2 have sparked rumors that the Western game could be getting a new feature soon that was a fan favorite in Grand Theft Auto 5.

Rockstar fans waited close to a decade for Red Dead Redemption 2 to finally release. In 2018, the wildly anticipated title made its debut on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Almost two years on, it’s considered a modern day classic by fans and critics. On August 9, files discovered in the game kicked the rumor mill into overdrive that the Western could be getting a popular GTA V feature in the future.

Could Red Dead Redemption 2 get GTA 5 feature?

Files discovered in the game were first found by ‘VideoTech_’ on Twitter, who revealed code similar to that of Grand Theft Auto V’s wildly popular Rockstar Editor feature.


“Some interesting control inputs in the RDR2 files relating to the Rockstar Editor,” the tweet read. However the GTA enthusiast cautioned followers that it could just be leftover code from V.

“Bear in mind; could be leftovers from Grand Theft Auto 5 it happens a lot,” they said. The feature was introduced to GTA5 in 2015 when the PC port was released, and was added to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions a year later.

The Editor would be a massive deal for Red Dead, as the Western is already one of the most cinematic games to ever come out. The amount of possibilities players could create with the video editing tool would be limitless.


VideoTech again cautioned followers that it’s more than likely just leftover code from GTA. “Honestly, it’s most likely a leftover from GTA5. But I am sure the Editor will come eventually come out,” they said.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was met with overwhelming praise after it released in 2018, as fans and critics fell in love with its epic story and sprawling open world map.

Just like Grand Theft Auto 5, the game’s ‘Online’ mode has been a big hit with players. However a video editor mode would certainly be the perfect addition.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
