The information was revealed on a GTA forum, ‘Tez2’ took to the forum to share the information with users.
It read “@alloc8or found out new structs that were added with the recent update relating to the standalone version and one of them is “rage::fwuiMessageBase”, which is from RDR2’s RAGE version, so that seems to go along what @Spider-Vice & @uNi stated, that the enhanced edition is likely to utilize RDR2’s RAGE version. However, it could just be that the UI would utilize RDR2’s base code, while the rest remains the same.”
Fans have jumped to the conclusion that in order for GTA 5’s visual to be enhanced, it will share technology from Red Dead Redemeption 2.
