Fans of Red Dead Redemption gathered in E3 to witness the launch of Season 2. However, both events conducted by Microsoft and Sony ended without even a hint of this game ever coming up. However, fans are still hopeful about Red Dead Redemption 2, and they believe that an E3 trailer was canceled since it features a lot of violent content.
A lot of people suggested that the Orlando shooting is the main reason why the trailer was not revealed at E3. Even BitBag reported that it was due to the Orlando shooting why the trailer for the sequel of Red Dead Redemption, was not shown at E3. According to the people who are linking the absence of this trailer at E3 with the Orlando shooting, the former contains a lot of violent footage showing a massacre.
Therefore, Rockstar executives decided to take away this trailer from E3, to show respect to the affected families and victims. Considering the reputation of Rockstar regarding its violent content, many believed this connection to be true.
However, Adam Boyes, PlayStation Vice President of Third Party Relations & Developer Technology Group, said such speculations are not at all correct.
He declared that the length and content that they showed was completely fixed and unchanged for several months. In reality, Sony PlayStation never even planned to showcase or tease off a new game from Rockstar, during this event.
All these speculations regarding the trailer and Orlando shooting were completely baseless, and it was entirely fan-made. Straus Zelnick, the Take-Two CEO, earlier said that their studio will be doing something big in E3.
Fans immediately started thinking that he was hinting the arrival of a new game from Rockstar. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that gamers should let go of hope. MrBossFTW, renowned GTA tipster and YouTuber explained that Rockstar doesn’t need to be dependent on E3 to announce the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2.
It was a big deal for some fans when Microsoft didn’t announce some new titles on Xbox Backward Compatibility in E3 2016. Whenever the opportunity arrives, Microsoft always keeps their promise of delivering titles.
It could be E3 or just some other date, but fans can always count on Microsoft regarding Backward Compatibility feature being added to some new titles. GameNGuide recently reminded gamers regarding what they have missed in the extensive list of games on Xbox One Backward Compatibility.
We will have to wait for at least two more weeks before new titles start arriving. Sadly for Red Dead Redemption 2 fans, this game will not have the backward compatible feature. They said that licensing is the main reason why they cannot deliver this game on Microsoft Xbox One.
With the E3 2016 hype gone, fans can now focus on what has been offered in the past. Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead are the latest titles which made it to this list. Other games to be announced, include “Babel Rising,”“Brain, Challenge,” “Lazy Raiders,” “SEGA Bass Fishing,” “Foul Play,” “Monopoly Plus,” “Anomaly: Warzone Earth.” and “XCOM: Enemy Within.”
BitBag made some more predictions regarding titles which can support backward compatibility. They are The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim, Black Ops II, Red Dead Redemption II and BioShock. Red Dead Redemption 2 appeared on the Xbox One store, showing a downloadable title along with a backward-compatibility supported feature. However, Microsoft took it away from its online store, and it has never been heard of again.
