Red Dead Redemption 2 data mine points towards Mexican map locations

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been data mined, evidence of Mexican map models found

While Red Dead Redemption 2's map is already massive, what if it could get bigger and maybe even traverse into the Mexican region?

Well, that could actually happen as Red Dead Redemption 2 players have data mined the game and found some quite peculiar game files that point directly to that. Posted this past Tuesday on the GTAforums, VideoTechUK decided to data-mine the PS4 version (1.0.0) to see if he could find some unused locations. To his surprise, he managed to find a slew of Mexican map models that are disabled by Rockstar, but left in the game.

Not only were models of Mexican locations found in the game files, but another user, WildBrick142, was able to find "references to map region outlines in the minimap scaleform, unfortunately, the actual outline graphics for them were deleted". Now the juicy question should be asked -- did Rockstar initially plan to use these Mexican locations and then decided to scrap them? If so, why leave the models inside the game files to take up more HDD space? Another theory could be -- Rockstar is planning on expanding Red Dead Redemption 2 at some stage with a brand new region.
