That Red Dead Redemption 2 DLC and Red Dead Redemption remake thing is totally fake, sorry

A recent purported “leak” claiming that new content and a remake of the original game are in development has been busted – by the same guy who leaked it. And this is why we assume that everybody on the internet is a fibby fibbing fibber, kids.

Reddit user throwaway11113454 posted the leak over the weekend, citing the instantly questionable credibility of a “friend who is one of the environment artists” at Rockstar, which is second only to the “dad who works at Nintendo” on the list of dubious sources. The post has since been scrubbed, but everything on the internet is also forever, kids.

Now throwaway11113454 has owned up to the leak being some sort of “experiment” to… I dunno what besides proving that everybody on the internet is a fibby fibbing fibber, kids. Ingenious.

“This was an experiment I have always wanted to do regarding the spreading of rumors in video game culture,” he explains in an update. And, because people are stupid, he got what he wanted – despite its exceedingly improbable prospects in reality, the leak was subsequently re-published on multiple websites and video channels.

Not NAG, though, and definitely not because I was too busy clicking through cat memes yesterday to write about it. Nuh-uh.
