Red Dead Redemption 2 releases October 26

Rockstar announced this morning that Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on Xbox and PS4 on October 26th, later this year.

The game was originally scheduled for a late 2017 release before being delayed until this spring. This represents the game’s second delay but at least we have a firm date.

Rockstar had this to say about the delay:

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.

If you’re planning on shipping a major game this October, it would be a good idea to watch out for RDR2 now. I had hoped it would release this summer but alas.

If only we could get a proper remaster of the first game!
