Update: Turing an earnings call, Take-Two Interactive confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 would launch after April 2018.
Rockstar Games just announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 is now set to launch in Spring 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. 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 they can deliver the best experience possible for their fans. Rockstar Games added:
“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.”
It’s good that Rockstar Games is delaying their title because a lot of broken games like Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 have released recently. Not only does it affect enjoyment, but it also tarnishes the names of games and studios. Red Dead Redemption 2 can take all the time it needs if it can deliver a truly groundbreaking experience.
