Xbox PlayStation PC Red Dead Redemption 2 Leak Hints at Big New Gameplay Feature

  • Staff
Red Dead Redemption 2 might be getting a big new feature coming soon.

A Twitter user and self-described "Rockstar enthusiast" known as @VideoTech_ took a dive into the July 28 Naturalist update files for Red Dead Redemption 2 and discovered a "new mention" that wasn't present in the Moonshiner DLC. The text referenced Director Mode and blocked Jack Marston in this mode, leading the Twitter user to believe that Director Mode will be "likely" coming, but without Marston as a playable character.

More specifically, there are now new files that directly reference a "director mode." Now, this isn't the first time files in the game have hinted at this mode, but these are brand new additions. In other words, it doesn't appear they are leftover files.

For those that don't know: Director Mode is a gameplay mode that Rockstar Games first introduced back in 2015 with Grand Theft Auto V alongside the Rockstar Editor. In other words, if Director Mode is coming, it would mean the Rockstar Editor is as well as the two go together.

With the mode, players can select a single actor from a variety of categories, including animals and characters. In other words, with the update, players should be able to control Arthur's whole gang, minus Jack Marston, who looks like he won't be playable, likely due to him being a child.

While datamining leaks are typically quite reliable, they can sometimes be misleading and inconclusive. In other words, remember to take everything here with a grain of salt.

At the moment of publishing, Rockstar Games has not commented on this leak or the possibility of Director Mode coming to RDR2, and at this point, it's unlikely it will.
