Another anticipated game, another delayed release. It definitely seems to be the status quo lately when it comes to AAA releases. This time, Rockstar Games’ highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 which was slated for an August release is now being delayed. The good news is that we have a concrete release date: October 26th.
Rockstar Games announced the delay and release date in a blog post, stating that they needed more time “for polish.”
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.
On that note, like Rockstar mentioned, there are a few new screenshots from the game for your enjoyment in the meantime. Check them out in the gallery below!
