Amazon have leaked the existence of an art book for Red Dead Redemption 2, which if real is due out around the game’s console release in October. The listing says it will be published by Random House, who have recently put out game art books for God of War, Sea of Thieves, and Wolfenstein 2.
Here’s everything we want to see from Red Dead Redemption 2!
Amazon have since pulled all details on the listing for The Art of Red Dead Redemption 2, but did confirm to Twitter user RockstarINTEL that the product was genuine and is for a Random House book due on October 30 – with a picture supposedly forthcoming.

The (now deleted) description reads that the book will be “a peek behind the curtain of Rockstar Games and its intensely guarded approach to the creation of the lush, Old West open-world gameplay”. It also suggests that the book will include “storyboards and behind-the-scenes inner workings of the game’s creation, with a mix of detailed original art, concept, story, and character studies, sketches, and actual screengrabs of the end result that led to the creation of this spectacular game”.
We’re still unsure about whether Red Dead Redemption 2 will come out on PC, so maybe staringly longingly at some nice artwork from the game will help tide us over – or alternatively give Wild West Online a go when that releases on Steam on May 10?
