Rockstar Games has announced on their official blog where the company apologized for the delay. Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally due out during Spring 2018, following an earlier delay from fall 2017. According to Rockstar, this new delay affords the studio extra time to improve the game.
“We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26 2018,” it said. “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.”
Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
