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.
