The Wild West can get a lot wilder. A recent leak for Red Dead Redemption 2 and its counterpart Red Dead Online reveals that a much-wanted feature may be coming soon. A dataminer has revealed that Rockstar Games added files to Red Dead Redemption 2 that explicitly reference a "director's mode". The mode has been hinted at in leaked files in the past, but the fact that these are brand new additions has raised hopes for virtual cowboys everywhere.



Twitter user VideoTech, a self-proclaimed Rockstar enthusiast, shared the leak and his thoughts on the upcoming Director Mode on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia versions of the game. It's worth noting that Jack Marston will be probably unplayable due to his childhood.

Director mode is probably in progress. It looks like Jack Marston won't be a playable character according to this new mention in the files. This new mention had remained in “ambientpedmodelsets.meta” from the Naturalist update.

First released in 2015 with Grand Theft Auto V, Director Mode allows players to select a variety of characters, both human and animal. The mode puts the player in control of a host of cheats, spoken phrases, and contextual actions for a true showcase of creativity. If Director Mode is going to make its debut in RDR2, it will most likely be alongside publisher Rockstar.

Rockstar Editor is another special feature initially seen in GTA V. The editor allows saving, editing and sharing of footage created from both GTA Online and the game's story mode. This would be huge for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online. The beauty juxtaposed with the chaos of the Wild West is too good for these modes not to be on board.



There are a plethora of cases where data mining has proven to be very reliable. There are also a large number of times the information shared has been misrepresented. This means keeping the excitement to a minimum to avoid being crushed by a potential leak that leads nowhere. Either way, Director Mode, paired with Rockstar Editor for RDR2, would literally be a game-changer. Rockstar Games has yet to comment on the leaks or speculation and will likely remain silent until an official announcement. If we ever come.
