After it’s announcement, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been getting so much hyped and now we have a release date. Today Rockstar, via their website, announced that the game will be coming out on October 26th, 2018. The game was first rumored to be released this Spring but looks like they will be doing a Fall release.
Rockstar also released a statement about the release date with the following:
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.
Rockstar seems to be wanting to make sure the players have a great game when it releases with as few as possible bugs in the game. The game was first announced in October 2016 with a teaser photo. This would now put the game to be released two years after it got announced. With the statement, Rockstar also released screenshots of the game.
