Rockstar confirmed in October last year that it was developing a sequel to Red Dead Redemption which was released back in 2010. It originally said that the game is going to be released in fall 2017 but that didn’t happen. Rockstar later confirmed that it had delayed the game’s release to 2018. Now, it appears that a retailer has possibly revealed the Red Dead Redemption 2 release date.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a Western drama much like its predecessor so there’s going to be no shortage of grit. Rockstar recently released a new trailer which gave us an idea of what to expect from the story.
The title is going to be the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they survive in the vast and rugged heart of America by robbing, fighting, and stealing.
CoolShop, a Danish retailer, has possibly revealed the Red Dead Redemption 2 release date. Its listing for the title mentions a June 8th, 2018 release date for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It’s not uncommon for retailers to use placeholders in their listings but it merits mentioning here that this retailer has previously revealed the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of Grand Theft Auto 5 before their official announcement. So it can’t be ruled entirely that that CoolShop has some information about the title’s release.
Rockstar is yet to confirm the release date officially, though. It hasn’t confirmed anything beyond the generic 2018 timeframe.
