When Red Dead Redemption 2 was officially announced last fall, the game’s release was planned for one year later in the fall of 2017. Fans who had been waiting for the sequel since the release of Red Dead Redemption in 2010 were elated, but well aware that initial release windows often change.
Developer and Publisher Rockstar Games has now announced that the release of the game has been pushed back a bit to one year from now in the spring of 2018. As is usually the case with these delays, it’s simply to ensure a better final product, which I for one am all for.
To help make up for the delay, Rockstar has also released a handful of new screenshots from the game, which you can see above and below.
Earlier this week, after a couple of teases, came news that excited gamers everywhere had been waiting to hear for six years now: Red Dead Redemption 2 is officially on the way. Rockstar Games made the announcement, which came with confirmation that the game would be arriving sometime in the fall of next year.
Rockstar also announced that the first trailer for the game would be arriving on Thursday morning at 11AM. As you’re probably aware, that time has arrived, and so has the promised first trailer.
Head below now to get your first look at Red Dead Redemption 2.
After releasing the biggest entertainment title of all time in Grand Theft Auto V back in 2013, Rockstar Games got to work on whatever was next for them. Heading into E3 2016 earlier this year whispers abounded that their next release would be a sequel to their hit western Red Dead Redemption, and many eagerly awaited the big reveal during the convention. But sadly it never came. Whether that was because Rockstar saw all of those whispers and wanted to wait for more of a surprise reveal or they were working on something else entirely, nobody knew.
Beginning earlier this week they released a couple of teases that had fans losing their minds hoping it was hints of an incoming sequel confirmation. Many others, however, thought it was more likely something related to the first Redemption or even its predecessor Red Dead Revolver becoming available on PS4. But now, passing up the usual big reveal during one of the video game events, Rockstar has released a simple post confirming that Red Dead Redemption 2 is real, when a first trailer will be released, and when you can expect to play it. You can find all of that below.
The Western genre is a 50/50 one. Many people love it passionately, and many others just can’t seem to get into it. The same goes in the world of video games: whether it was the awesome Wild Gunmen or maybe even Gun Smoke on Nintendo, up to the more recent GUN and Call of Juarez games, you either dig them or want nothing to do with them. The latest video game effort that will take us to the wild old west is a game called Red Dead Redemption, and it now has a great new trailer.
Red Dead Redemption is a sequel of sorts to one of the not-so-good Westerns of the past, Red Dead Revolver, and both are developed by the masterminds behind the Grand Theft Auto series, Rockstar Games. While the first game didn’t have a whole lot to offer, this new game is not only looking to join the party, it’s looking to take over the genre. Not much is known of gameplay and what to really expect, but if you watch this video, you will surely see that they may have gone and created the most impressive and authentic old western world that we’ve seen so far.
