Update: The source who said they know the file size for Red Dead Redemption 2 is now saying that their claim of a 50GB file size was not true.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the sequel many fans of the Wild West have been waiting for and with so many games coming out - some even at a whopping 100GB download - a new rumor is saying that Red Dead Redemption 2 will only require 50GB on the PlayStation 4 with a 3GB patch. What makes this interesting is that this directly contradicts a previous report.
LEAK: Red Dead Redemption 2 is apparently 50GB in size with a 3GB patch on a regular PlayStation 4. pic.twitter.com/JZEPjNFXQt— Red Dead News • RockstarINTEL.com (@RDonlineNews) October 11, 2018
The leak comes from the folks over at RockstarIntel and probably comes as a relief to many when looking at their PlayStation systems. Especially so when it was recently revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would require 100GB of free space.
That, and the earlier report that Re Dead Redemption 2 would require over 105GB of free space, a report that came from this same source. RockstarIntel even addressed this contradiction in their comment section:
The 105GB report is just an exaggerated number to make sure you have enough space - companies do it all the time. PS4 Pro and normal PS4 won't have much difference between them.— Red Dead News • RockstarINTEL.com (@RDonlineNews) October 11, 2018
Yet, many were still not convinced:

I think it will be 100 to install, but when the install is finished the playstation will delete 50gb. So it will only take up 50gb storage when the install is done.— Viktor Samuelsson (@Hunterwike) October 11, 2018
