Rockstar Announces Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date

Rockstar has posted on their social media channels that the sequel to their 2010 critically acclaimed game, Red Dead Redemption, finally has a release date. We can expect to see Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26th, 2018. This date is a delay from the announced spring release that they had made late last year.

In the post made by Rockstar the developer has said “While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish. We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it”. While many gamers had hoped to play Red Dead Redemption 2 some time this spring, the delay only means that they are taking extra care to really make their new sequel something special, and of course polish out any glaring bugs in the game. Rockstar is a studio well known for putting out quality games and we can only look forward to the release of their next major title with anticipation.
