Rockstar delays Red Dead Redemption 2 to October 2018

39;Red Dead Redemption 2' shunted to October

Instead, the developers of "Red Dead Redemption 2" have opted to push back the game's launch to October 26 for the PlayStation 4 (PS4) and the Xbox One.

At the beginning of 2017, the first trailer of Red Dead Redemption 2 was made public, while later, in May, the studio released a series of screenshots of the game's environments. Though Read Dead Redemption 2 has been pushed back again, we now have a solid date for PS4 and Xbox One releases.

According to the company's representatives, the reason for this delay is the need for additional time to "polish" the game. They did, however, apologize for the significant delay in schedule since the game understandably requires a lot more quality control and perhaps optimization for the ageing consoles.

The last couple of weeks have been filled with some exciting announcements, from the grand unveiling of Mario Kart Tour and God of War's release date, to the release of hotly anticipated titles like Monster Hunter: World and the imminent launch of the Shadow of the Colossus remake.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is scheduled to be released on October 26 this year for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. As opposed to its widely known sibling, Grand Theft Auto V, the Red Dead Redemption game series has only been launched on the two mentioned platforms, with no known intentions of being adapted for PC play. It's up for pre-order from GameStop and a few other major retailers, including Newegg which is now offering $10 off.
