Last month, the mod group White announced “Red Dead Redemption V,” a project that would include Red Dead’s map into Grand Theft Auto V. But sadly after they released a teaser trailer for some reason they scrapped the whole project.
“I know this is a hard pill to swallow, but as you may have noticed we did get contacted, and we sadly have to say we are stopping this project,” wrote Mr. Leisurewear, the mod’s lead programmer, on the same day the trailer was revealed. “So thanks, guys, we were all so happy to see this, but it isn’t going to happen, sorry.” The trailer had been taken down before many fans of the fledgling project even got to see it.
I hope they don’t throw away the files, Take-Two has got nervous about this may hurt the RDR2 sales, as with FiveM back then when GTAO was making money,” wrote a user by the name of Alvarez on the mod’s forum. “In few years maybe, when the hype around RDR2 calms down, you could try to reopen it and savor it as a fine aged wine.”
With the release of the teaser for the GTA V mod, White explained that “Red Dead Redemption V” would take the map from the Xbox 360 version of the game, port it to the GTA V engine, and expand it in the process. In remaking the map, the group planned to add “Parallax Occlusion Mapping and Tessaslation where applicable.” The original FAQ for the mod stated that. White hoped to have a working beta available sometime this summer.
I so wanted to show you the teaser trailer of this mod but sadly it is been taken down and cannot be seen again.
