Red Dead Redemption 2 Delayed AGAIN Until October 2018

/ 3 weeks ago

Red Dead Redemption 2

Like a broken record, for nearly a year we have reported how an intended release date has been announced for Red Dead Redemption 2 just for Rockstar to dash all of our hopes.

Yes, I’m afraid this isn’t good news, but Rockstar has announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed yet again. Spring 2018 is, I’m afraid to say, long gone.

Damn you Rockstar!

Yes, I know, I’m disappointed too. As above though, we should hardly be surprised. It’s no joke to say that I believe this is now the 3rd or possibly 4th time we’ve had to report on this being delayed.

Rather more crushingly, however, the announcement comes just a few days after we believed we had confirmed a provisional release date for July 2018. Well, no, that was way off the mark.

When is Red Dead Redemption 2 being released?

In a report via Polygon the delay is again to put a more finishing touch to the product. Something in fairness which Rockstar does have a reputation of, but also for following through on it.

The good news is that we do now have a firm release date. Well, firm for the moment, it is after all, hard to know if this one will stick either.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release on October 26th 2018.

Will it release on that day?

I certainly hope so! In fairness to Rockstar though, as above, they generally do not tend to delay releases without a good reason and they do have a reasonably good reputation for releasing a very polished product. Given the hype surrounding this, it would be very unwise to release it in a poor state. Not that that had ever stopped EA.

What do you think? Looking forward to RDR2? In addition, do you think this release date will stick? – Let us know in the comments!
