Dutch, Hosea and the gang early on speak a lot about coming from the west and wanting to go west again. I believe the initial plan was to head out west before they were forced to hide in the mountains.

 

What do you guys think is out west? I assume they are not referring to New Austin so are they talking about a place more west than NA or are they talking about the region north of NA/west of AM/WE? Is west where Canyon City is located?

 

Do you believe a potential RDR3 will take place in the west and before RDR2?

What is a Canyon City?

No, I think they actually mean New Austin. They were in Blackwater before the beginning of the game. West is obviously New Austin.

Canyon city is referenced on two posters in New Austin RDR1. Canyon City of the Southwest territory. The first poster also refers to the Southwestern Railroad Company.

 

Given that the gang comes from The West, the gang hasn't been to New Austin and Canon City of the Southwest territory, I'm inclined to conclude that there exists land in the RDR universe west of New Austin. Remember that the gang was chased from the west and OVER the mountains (Grizzlies and redemption Mountains). Thoughts?

That's pretty cool i never saw those posters before, and i just had a run in with the good Doctor. Nice guy. It would make sense to me there's future land to the West. It's where the gang kept saying or at least Hosea they thought they were headed after Blackwater and Colter. Wouldn't be surprised if Hosea had been to canyon city, he's been everywhere.

Why do they head towards the snow anyway, there is so much land between Blackwater and the snow its not funny, they would've had to pass throught northern West Elizabeth and by the direction they arrive in the snowy area they would have cut through the mountains and swing back around toward the mining town

Their whole Storyline versus Compass Coordinates makes no sense as-when I look at the Map, Blackwater is SouthEast of the Grizzlies/Colter.

 

There would have to be something West of the map where Tall Trees and the Westernline running up with the Grizzlies are.  In the real world locations New Austin-Blackwater would be around Dallas Texas with Armadillo getting close to San Antonio Texas.  That put Nuevo Pariso in the proper place for Mexico.  St Denis would be more along the lines of Mississippi and Florida with Louisiana mixed in.   Valentine and Emerald Ranch would be Kansas, The mountains and Anneseburg would be Virginia/Pennsylvania.  The Grizzlies-Colorado, maybe Wyoming and then whatever is West of that is inaccesible on the current maps and that is where the Gang supposedly were chased from after Blackwater-not possible for them to have fled Blackwater into the Grizzlies going West.

The more I think about this the more sense it makes. Remember when we start RDR2, Dutch has already started to change for the worse. This implies there once was a golden time for the gang. Arthur says they were chased from the west and over the mountains. I think this implies they ended up in West Elisabeth, did the Blackwater heist that went bad and then had to flee up into the mountains again where we start the game.
