Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed until spring 2018, Rockstar has today announced.
The much anticipated sequel to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption had been given an Autumn 2017 release date by Rockstar, but that is now no longer the case. Instead, we’ll get to see Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Spring 2018, although there’s no further news regarding a PC release yet.
According to Rockstar, the decision to delay the game has been made as the studio needs extra time to ensure that they can deliver “the best experience possible for our fans.”
“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 we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans,” Rockstar said in a statement on its website.
“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 not the first time that Rockstar has delayed a game, and it probably won’t be the last. However, you can expect to learn some more information regarding Red Dead Redemption 2 over the next few months, especially with E3 just around the corner.
