Rockstar has finally announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 will release on October 26th, 2018. This is a full year later than their initial release period.
Rockstar didn’t really reveal a reason for the delay or give any more information about the delay, instead posting a simple message on their website with a bunch of epic new screens.
We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018. We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay. 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. In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.
