When Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Be Released?
Rockstar has yet to announce a release date for Red Dead Redemption 2. What we do know is that the game will launch in the first half of 2018, no sooner than April, but any specific dates have not been made apparent… yet. A rumor spread that the game might release June 8th, 2018, according to a listing on a Dutch retail outlet, as reported by Game Informer, but that date has not been confirmed yet by Rockstar or Take-Two Interactive. Rockstar has been very selective of its release dates for the last few outings, so it’s likely that the company will try to pick a date that best benefits its endeavors. GTA V launched in September, away from all the big games that drop in November, including avoiding the holiday rush occupied by AAA heavy-hitters like Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed. The last Red Dead game launched in May, and Rockstar also launched Max Payne 3 in May as well. So, Rockstar seems to be positioning Red Dead Redemption 2 around GTA IV‘s window, which launched in the spring.
