Red Dead Redemption 2 E3 2018 PS4 PlayStation 4

Many were left disappointed at the lack of Red Dead Redemption 2 at this year's E3. Rockstar isn't normally in the habit of attending the Los Angeles event, so it's typical we didn't see anything new during the show. However, one or two reports are coming out that the open world Western was, in fact, present, and not only that, but it was a very secretive playable demo.

Eurogamer's editor, Oli Welsh, states that he noticed a private room where he thought he saw the game being shown to a select group of people. He notes, "we saw into a meeting room we weren't supposed to see into and caught a glimpse of what appeared to be playable Red Dead Redemption 2 - on the face of it, this year's most notable absentee - but it seemed very hush-hush and neither we nor anyone we know was allowed anywhere near it." Gaming website VGR also states that an editor from Ars Technica backs up this claim.

If true, it's possible we'll be getting gameplay footage from the highly anticipated sequel very soon indeed. That certain members of the press were able to see the private demonstration might also mean we'll start to see new impressions on the game as well. We'll have to sit tight for now, but we imagine an update on RDR2 won't be too far away now.
