New Red Dead Redemption 2 cut content has surfaced online. When RDR2 launched in 2018 via the PS4 and Xbox One, it had a plethora of content. It's the type of game you can get lost in for hundreds of hours. That said, it was once even longer and meatier. Over the course of development, content was cut from the game, which is the case with virtually every game, especially ones the size and ambition of Red Dead Redemption 2. Over time, some of this cut content has leaked.
The latest cut content to surface online comes way of Twitter users VideoTech and Noru, who revealed the latest cut content showing that there was once scarlet fever notices hanging around Armadillo in an earlier version of the game.
As pointed out, in the first game, Marshall Johnson notes that Armadillo was ravaged by scarlet fever. In other words, this is likely a reference to that, but for now, it's unclear if this was linked to a mission or something of greater significance. You'd assume it was, because there's really no other explanation for why it would be cut.

For now, all Red Dead Redemption fans can do is speculate. Rockstar Games hasn't commented on any of this yet, and it's unlikely it will. The company has a pretty strict policy of not commenting on leaks. That said, if a comment is provided, we will be sure to update this post with whatever is shared.
Another little interesting finding too, the Practice Store is changed a little upon unloading the map with a new door barricade and windows. But it seems to be very low-quality though.
