It looks like a new Red Faction game is on the way, and given the source of the rumour and the time of year, we’ll likely learn more at E3 if this is true. A Twitter user spotted a game called Red Faction Evolution listed on Nvidia’s site as one of the games supported by its Ansel screenshotting technology.
Said user posted a screenshot of their discovery, which you can check out below.
