Company Rockstar announced another delay in the expected action movie Red Dead Redemption 2. The game was first announced in October 2016, and the release was originally scheduled for the fall of 2017. Later, the release date was shifted to the spring of 2018, and many retailers even “merged” the exact day – April 20. However, now the developers have clarified the situation and announced the final decision.
In a recently published statement, the studio representatives said that Red Dead Redemption 2 will absolutely go on sale October 26 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No information about the version for the PC is still there.
The developers apologized for the delay and told that they planned to release the game earlier, but they need additional time to polish it. They promised to share fresh details in the coming weeks, and also published several new screenshots.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be an adventure thriller with the open world in the spirit of Grand Theft Auto, but in the scenery and aesthetics of the Wild West. The original game was very highly appreciated by critics and gamers (it has 95/100 points on Metacritic), becoming a real hit, and so far there is no reason to doubt that the continuation from Rockstar will at least to some extent be inferior to it.
