User Banned (1 Week): Spreading misinformation in this thread
This will be a very complicated thread so bare with me and I am not a lunatic.

Timeline:

So on March 28th, GTANet (GTAForums Admins and mods) posted without any further context:

Now from this post, we can conclude that they were on their way to attend a Rockstar related event in London. Mind you this was posted the 28th of March.

Now, here's where things get a little more juicy:
http://gtaforums.com/topic/907737-rockstar-the-usher-hall/

A few weeks back, a user posts this thread on the GTAForums saying that he/she saw R* with members of the press near Usher Hall in Edinburgh. He later says that the presentation took place March 29th and goes on to describe what he heard from his friend "Deep Bawbie" that was at the venue...
"15 minute movie"
"Members of the press asking for icecream"
"Press with Jetpacks" I'll come back to the Jetpack thing later.

Now of course, we all thought he was a troll but if that were to case, why was the thread not locked yet? Many questioned the OP but the moderators came to his defense and started communicating with riddles. Some of which has yet to be solved.

A riddle was solved though that deciphered "jetpacks" as "press bags" like the one seen in the tweet.

After a while, some members started to think it was a hoax and that nothing even occurred at Usher Hall but earlier today, the same Admin that posted the tweet (And the same member that possibly saw the game in action), posted on the forums saying this:
http://gtaforums.com/topic/871075-red-dead-redemption-2-general-chat/?p=1070204075

Thankfully, this wasnt as hard to decipher as the other hints and riddles and shortly after, a member translated the true meaning behind that post:
http://gtaforums.com/topic/871075-red-dead-redemption-2-general-chat/?p=1070204116

Lots of the same mods and Admins that were teasing imminent information liked the post seemingly confirming that it was the answer to the riddle.

So that concludes this. News coming Thursday?

(If this thread is too weird or anything feel free to lock it mods. But there is credence)

It's so hard to predict when anything will come from R*. They are probably the only devs who can put out info literally whenever they want. I'm hopeful for Thursday. Thanks for making the thread OP!

I hope they show off an official gameplay video sometime before the game releases like they did with GTAV.


That video shut everything down when it dropped.

Yeah, this was a good evolution of the videos they released for the original Red Dead Redemption, I expect something similar when they are ready.

Hasn't that picture in the tweet been used before? I feel like we had a thread ~2 weeks ago with this same rumor and same picture.

I just Hope it gives us hints about the direction of online. Will it be a mp focused mess or the old Rockstar games style? Hopefully the latter.

It's about time we get some news. As I said on the other thread, GTAV got a trailer released (well, actually 3) on April 30th so the timing seems right.

As much as I love RDR the 2 trailers from II did very, very little to get me hyped. Hopefully the next showing will do it.

"And then, there's Red Dead Redemption Online." I would dig it if they copied that video layout, even though GTA:O kinda bummed me out. Looking forward to seeing if they've learned anything from it.
