Oddly enough, the leak comes from the same Danish retail outlet that also let slip an accurate launch date for "Grand Theft Auto V" for home consoles.
A screenshot of the site shows a release date of June 8, 2018 for "Red Dead Redemption 2," even though Rockstar Games has not yet made an announcement.
Rockstar GamesDeveloped by the creators of "Grand Theft Auto V" and "Red Dead Redemption," "Red Dead Redemption 2" is an epic tale of life in America's unforgiving heartland.In fact, the site may just have a habit of releasing launch date information like this, perhaps much earlier than the game publishers would intend, as Comic Book notes.
Twitter and social media in general have been on overdrive about this early, and maybe unintended, reveal of the launch date for "Red Dead Redemption 2."
Danish retailer Coolshop , meanwhile, has already revised their product listing page to show a launch date of just "2018" for the upcoming Western-themed game.
