Given the lack of updates on this game since it was announced last fall I had a feeling it would be delayed and sure enough Rockstar has just announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 is getting delayed until Spring 2018. You can read their full statement below.
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.
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 are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer. In the meantime, please enjoy this selection of new screenshots from the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Given Rockstar’s past history of delaying games this was expected quite honestly but one thing is for sure that the game will be good when it does come out. Let us know how you’re feeling from the delay in the comments below.
