WE

GOT

REKT

 

BUT

IM

SO

HAPPY

 

From now on I'll just automatically assume no Rockstar game will not not get delayed. It was naive of me to have hope until now... but hindsight is 20/20 :p

Is it me or does the building in the far distance (left) say "BLACKWATER"

That´s what i thought! At least the word "Black" is visible... It could also mean "Blacksmith".

UNLESS IT'S DELAYED AGAIN to Fall 2018 this time!

September/October 2018, calling it now.

For PCs maybe...  Console will be around March or April.

There is absolutely no excuse for this delay. None. Whatsoever. This game has been in development for much longer than GTA V was, when it was announced. Holy SH*T at those graphics though!

 

What makes matters worse is that this isn't a small delay, it's not Fall to Winter. It's what was probably September/October release (going by their history) to a April/May release. The screenshots look incredible, but it's so sad to see them once again delay a game. Really thought they had learned their lesson this time.

We all thought they learned.

This time they announced a game along release window, which was only going to be 12-13 months wait.

Then we get 7 months news drought and now  this... the Infamous Fall to Spring delay.

 

Why couldn't they f*cking announce this game on either RDR's 7th Year Anniversary, E3 2017 or even today with release in Spring 2018, why did they have to do it in October last year?!

I think the details on those revolvers itself confirm that there will be first person mode:

Not sure about the first person mode, this could also be taken from a cutscene

At least with GTAV we had a huge information blowout two months before the delay AND two trailers

With RDR2.. we don't really have much except one trailer and a bunch of screenshots :/

With GTA V the delay announcement came much later.

After the first trailer released in October, Rockstar didn't announce any release date, and in July we got new GTA V information for the first time and that was two screenshots (but still no release date at all)

Not surprised by the delay or as annoyed as others. It is to be expected from R* and either way the game will look great but damn...

 

The screens tho...This is looking almost Horizon zero dawn like in foliage density.

RDR 2 went from 11-13 months to 17-19 months, not that much better.

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.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure them announcing RDR2 so soon was because of Take-Two. I wonder what took them so long though, we've had evidence of RDR2 being worked on since at least 2013, like, what?

Yeah, looks way better than the trailer actually. Almost like an entirely different game.

Yep, and now announcing the delay hours before the conference call. It's clear they time announcements around Take-Two's schedule, if not game releases. They really need to take a step back with it for the fans sake, don't get me wrong we'll all still buy the game eitherway but sh*t's not fun man.

I think we'll get a new trailer and screenshots in July or August, and then by Fall and Winter we'll start to get the first gameplay videos

Because we've had our first screenshots, we can commence the classic R* Games screenshot analysis thread. Over 'ere, in a recycled thread. :p

Is it possible to tell more exact time period of the game by these screenshots?

jI guess a lot of you are easily pleased. If it comes out another year from now ....wow. Game been potentially 5-6 years in development.

Too busy with their heads buried in gta online. I don't have a problem with a delay just the way they have handled it, yet again.

I'm going to get lost in that forest on purpose. 

Anyway, Spring is actually better for R* than Fall

Yeah, they can go straight to Hell.

I don't care that it's been delayed. These things happen. But what really needles me is the silence beforehand. Letting time go on and on, and never tossing us a bone until they had no choice but to.

See, this is why you keep an ongoing dialogue with your fans, and don't act like a bunch of snobs.

Sure people said the same around GTA V's release, I'm fully expecting another delay. I'll take a temp ban if i'm wrong.

Damn, who knew RDR2s delay would cause the stock to drop this much. But it's clear that Rockstar/T2 purposefully waited for the market to close before announcing the delay.

The call conference being pushed forward probably has something to do with reassuring investors after the delay announcement.
