Things you once believed about the game that ended up being untrue?

I remember back when the rumors first started, I was one of the guys who fully believed we would be playing as at least 3 gang members. The way GTA V was done convinced me of this. I know there were some interesting theories floating around at the time too that convinced me even more. 

What are some things you once believed about the game that ended up being untrue?

I could reel off a list longer than my arm for GTA but I'm struggling to remember anything that was leaked about RDR2 that hasn't come true. Maybe battle royale mode but that seems more of a decision not to do it than a false rumour.

Me too.  With everything else looking credible in that leak, I too thought BR would be part of RDO.  Zelnick from Take Two seemed to indicate that they were not really interested in a BR especially for the sake of it as some others are doing.  .....but he also said he wouldn't rule it out.  It would have to be something special.

I guess we'll have to see when they give us more information.  I have a feeling if they do have BR, it will be in a different form that what folks are used to.  Personally, I could do without it if it means resources are spent elsewhere making RDO a better, less toxic experience than GTAV:O was.  .....focusing perhaps more on co-op than aggressive PvP.

At one time, there was a rumor that we would be playing as Jack from the time he grew up till the old west dies.  At the time the story was you would be Jack, who was continuing the legacy of John and all those gangs that John stomped out would want revenge.  I was so scared that would be true.

Maybe 7 out of 10 of these this guy says "it's a given that" and guess what, he was wrong.

 

I didn't even know there was a rumour that Red Dead Online would have a beta, guess that one turned out to be true.

I'd heard the BS rumour that Red Dead Redemption II would have us playing as John Marston's father, I dunno why anyone who played Red Dead Redemption would believe that rubbish.

Shhh! Don't give them ideas for RDR3!! I do not want to play as him for an entire game. I had my fill and it was enough!

I believed the game was going to come out in 2017 and that ended up not being true. So there is one thing. I think that one got a lot of us lol

How would they spawn players into the map in a BR mode since we can’t parechute

That's a good point. Maybe you all come in on crazy untamed horses that ride wherever they want, then you just jump off when you're ready.

No idea but then again, who says they have to parachute in?  Maybe it's via train, randomized, chosen before the match, etc.  It also doesn't need to be a cookie cutter BR mode.  It could be an entirely different spin on BR.

Either way, I only mentioned it because most other things from the big leak seemed to have come to pass except that.  Personally, I have little interest in BR in RDR2 or in general.  I have no idea how they would have implemented it if they did.

blindfold, gag, and hogtied to the back of a horse and sent out in the middle of a battlefield.  You have to free yourself before you can start fighting.

Just start everyone around the perimeter of the map on horseback, randomly spaced apart, or have preselected spawns but random assignments.  To drive everyone closer together, have either tornadoes or wildfire closing in.

Better yet.  The could just start in a bar having drinks.  Players spawn randomly in the middle of a bar fight.

I love this. That's one thing the original RDR never had was a bar fight. I hope that changes with this entry.

To be fair I only did that once, but to my defense.  The players in there was already waiting for a fight and I was trying to hit another player and a NPC got in my way.  So I missed my target and guns were pulled before I could do much else.
