Last year the folks at Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2 which is the long-awaited sequel to the original Red Dead Redemption from 2010, so safe to say that it has been a long time coming. The game was originally announced for the fall of 2017, but Rockstar has since announced that it has been delayed to the spring of 2018 instead.
According to Rockstar, “Red Dead Redemption 2 is now set to launch Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.”
They add, “We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready.” We suppose this is disappointing news but we reckon most gamers would much rather have the game delayed rather than Rockstar release a game that isn’t quite up to scratch.
No specific dates have been mentioned so we’ll just have to keep an eye out for it. There was also no mention of it being available for the PC or the Nintendo Switch so we guess those options are off the cards.
