Games: Red Dead Redemption 2 Delayed…Again

Rockstar Games has delayed the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 for the second time.  However, they did give an official release date of October 26.


In a statement from Rockstar Newswire, a representative wrote:  “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.  We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.”

This is the games second delay.  It was originally scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2017 but was pushed back to the Spring of 2018.  But as Shigeru Miyamoto once said, “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is bad forever”.

From the Trailer and the new screen shot above, its clear that Red Dead 2 is going to be a beautiful game.  Otherwise, little is know about the upcoming title.  We do know that its a prequel and that it features a new protagonist called Arthur Morgan.  As for the rest, we’ll just have to wait breathless with anticipation.  One thing we know for sure is that Rockstar’s track record guarantees a truly great game.
