Nerdleaks has discovered a LinkedIn profile of Ruben Tavares, a former Rockstar Games 3D artist. His profile states that he worked for Rockstar Games from October of 2006 through February of last year. Tavares lists his experience working on Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Grand Theft Auto V and…Red Dead Redemption 2?

How strange, there is no Red Dead Redemption 2, that we know of. Maybe he meant Red Dead Revolver 2, which is Red Dead Redemption? Or perhaps Rockstar Games is in fact developing a sequel to the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption after all.

UPDATE: Sadly, the “2” is most likely a typo. According to Tavares’ game credits page on Moby Games, he did work on Red Dead Redemption as well as the other two listed on the LinkedIn page.

UPDATE #2: The typo has been fixed on Tavares’ page, as is the misspelling of Los Angeles. He also joked in his bio saying “During these years I received many good reviews from supervisors (NOT for spelling XD) which can be provided upon request.”
