We are having a hard time writing about this announcement, because we are too busy rubbing our hands together in glee. Red Dead Redemption 2 is releasing on October 26th. Rockstar Games made the very brief announcement on its site today.
The developer apologized for the delay, but they needed “a little extra time for polish”. They were quick to reassure everyone that it would be worth it.
It is no exaggeration to say the hype train on this one is huge. We look forward to spending hours in the Wild West riding our horses, firing our guns at every cowpoke we see, and exploring every last corner of the map.
Until then, try to console yourselves with a few screenshots.
We sometimes link to online retail stores. If you buy something from our links, we may make a small commission which goes towards keeping the lights on and coffee in the pot.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
