It has been about two years since Rockstar announced that they were working on Red Dead Redemption 2. The game was originally pegged for a release in the fall of 2017, but was delayed to the spring of 2018, and more recently it was announced that the game had been delayed yet again to the later part of 2018.
The good news is that this could be the final delay because during Take-Two’s earnings call, the company’s CEO Strauss Zelnick said that he was confident that the most recent date revealed by Rockstar would be the final date, meaning that gamers will no longer be able to expect any Additional Delays.
According to Zelnick, “More often than not, we feel proud that we’re able to do that. All of our labels are focused on releasing a title when they reach that apex of effort and perfection. And in this instance, Rockstar Games felt more polish was required, and naturally we are in favour of that decision [delaying the game]. The date of October 26 is set, and I am confident that will be the release date. We are incredibly excited about it.”
