Red Dead Redemption 2 included in 3D Artist's resume

Are you thinking what we're thinking?

9

Rockstar Games has long been rumored to be working on a sequel to Red Dead Redemption, and today, a LinkedIn profile has added more fuel to the fire.

The LinkedIn profile of a 3D artist has recently been discovered for a past Rockstar Games employee. The artist’s profile notes they worked for the company for ten years working on a number of projects, including Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Grand Theft Auto V, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

While the profile may confirm Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently in development at Rockstar Games, the amount of typos in his experience, such as “Midnight Clu: Los Angleses”, make us think otherwise.

The artist worked at Rockstar Games between October 2006 to February 2016, which also fits within the timeline of when the original Red Dead Redemption was released.

While we’d like to believe this was a simple leak, we think it’s more likely a typo. With that said, we’re still hopeful there’s some truth behind this LinkedIn profile.

      Don't know how much I trust the poor spelling there.

      I don't think it's official either. Saying you've worked on a game that is probably under wraps, listing it on a linked-in account would be career suicide.

        It happens way more than it should.

          You might have some insight on this.. So say I worked on Half Life 3 but I obviously couldn't say anything about it and my contract was up then I went to apply at other places... What would I say on my resume/portfolio? "Worked on unannounced IP at Valve Software"?

            Yeah, pretty much. I mean, if it weren't something as high a caliber as the sequel to Half Life 2, I'd probably tell them the name of the game verbally in the interview. But otherwise I'd just be vague.

            Even at GDC this year I had to tell a few people, "the last game I worked on at Ubisoft that I can publicly mention is Assassin's Creed Unity."

          But something that high profile? Seems kinda crazy, especially since it's a game that's never been released. It's not like they could confirm said previous talent.

            People are just not very smart sometimes.

            RDR 2? Sure. I've seen/heard of resume drops to games like this in the past.

              As a prospective employer, pics or it didn't happen.

      YEAH! Someone falsified their resume and should be IMMEDIATELY terminated.

      i would not at all be surprised if we see RDR2 announced sometime soon, but these rumors are all pretty much based on some very shaky substance
