If all of the delays around Rockstar Games’ latest installment in the Red Dead series has left you feeling blue, I have great news for you that will definitely lift your spirits. Releasing the news on the official Rockstar Games blog this morning, the New York based game studio confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018.
The game was originally due out during the fall of 2017 but, to the chagrin of fans everywhere, was later pushed to the Spring of 2018. This new delay will hopefully afford the studio a little extra time to improve the game and make sure that it is as polished as possible for launch.
The blog goes on to state that, “We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26 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.”
The blog goes on to state, “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.”
In company with this awesome release date announcement, a selection of new screenshots have also been released, which you can check out below.
