Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date Revealed Alongside New Images

A Long Road to a Release Date Is Now a Long Road to Release

This is the report straight from the horse’s mouth. In their latest update, the legendary Rockstar Games announced that their highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 will be arriving for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this October.

It’s been a very long wait just for an announcement, and now we have to wait a little longer. The exact release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 is October 26th, 2018, and let’s hope with all hope that it doesn’t get pushed back yet again. Of course, there’s a reason for its arrival so late in the year. With this sequel, the devs are asking for patience so that they can deliver their desired level of polish. They said as much in a new message to fans, which came with the reveal of new screenshots. See below.

Dear All,
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.
With thanks,
Rockstar Games

After so many rumors and trailers, we are left with something concrete. With Red Dead Redemption 2 arriving later this year, 2018 promises to be big. Check back for more updates and major announcements as we draw closer to new releases.

Happy gaming.
