Red Dead Redemption 2 Delayed to Spring 2018

Rockstar Games have announced a delay for Red Dead Redemption 2.

The game will forgo its planned fall 2017 release for one sometime next spring.

The company “needed some extra time” which they believed was “necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.”

To make up for the delay, the developer shared new screenshots, which you can view above as well as below:

Here’s a message from the team regarding the delay:

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now set to launch Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.

We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready. We are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer. In the meantime, please enjoy this selection of new screenshots from the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Once released, the game will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
