Red Dead Redemption 2 coming October 26, 2018

Fun fact: October 26 1881 at around 3:00 PM, a shootout between lawmen and outlaws took place at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. Rockstar didnt pick this date by accident.

And one person involved in the shooting was a special agent named Morgan.

Has anyone considered that R* could have been updating RAGE for next gen and that's the reason the took so long? I'm sure the next gen (PS5) we'll get more than one game from them.

Also, this specific date is giving me nostalgia since GTA: San Andreas was released on this date (well, on PlayStation 2). Which will be 14 years ago on this said day... :O

 

Somebody mentioned this quote earlier in the week so I'll echo it.

"American Heartland, home, at least it was before Arthur Morgan f*cked everything up". :D

With Redemption II coming on the same exact day of San Andreas, but 14 years later, the former could end up having the same cultural disruption and relevance down the line. You all know the impact that San Andreas still has on the industry and the memory of the now older players. Talk about the great movie and characters content that Redemption II will include, plus the depth of dialogue and theme uniqueness. Redemption was great, I reckon the prequel will be greater.

I'm glad, much rather play RDR2 through the cold winter months than in the middle of my summer.

He was not a special agent. He was Wyatt Earps brother who served as a lawman in other states before he moved to Arizona to be with his brothers, Virgil Earp and Wyatt obviously. Along with Doc Holiday among others who were deputized to take down the gang of Cowboys in that town after they killed Morgan.

So, sometime around late September 2018, Rockstar Newswire is gonna have a post,

 

"Hey, guys, you know what? There was a big mistake in the history books. The OK Corral thing? That actually happened on November 26, 1881. History's been wrong all this time; somebody typeset the wrong date in the old newspaper. So, you know, we wanna be accurate and all, and that anniversary is really important to the game, so, we're looking forward to releasing RDR2 on November 26, 2018, the date that we really meant. Cool? It's all good! See you then!"

Dear All,

 

We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on December 22nd 2018. We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay.

 

 

While we had hoped to have the game out sooner (Nah we knew this sh*t all along), we require a little extra time for polish (and also because it launches right before christmas and we'll get a sh*t ton of money that way LOL).

 

 

We sincerely thank you for your patience (especially those weirdos at gtaforums.com) and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it (HOPE?! We know it will!).

 

 

In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game (because we rather make trailers for gta online). We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks (...or months..oops :p).

 

With thanks,

Rockstar Games

That's not going to happen. At most a week or two delay, not to mention when they do reveal a full date they usually meet that date. GTA V went well, Max Payne 3 was the one that was delayed a week or 2 and so was RDR1 but never more than that.

Who knows at this point. I honestly did not believe they would delay it again, but they did. I really hope its for extra polish like they say. The factor that will convince me will be them announcing info and having a steady marketing campaign. If we get a drought then there is something wrong with development, this is what I deducted from R*. When they announced the game and then delayed it to spring, we all expected info which would have happened if the game was just getting polished, but nothing because they were working on the game, changing things etc still ( not little changes ). Remember, this game was originally slated for Fall 2017! I doubt they pulled that out thier ass, something happened, changed needed to be made so delay.. idk. I need more info to soothe my doubts and butthurt.

 

So, we will see in the next 2-3.. weeks.

I assume they likely had May in mind but took a look and figured they needed a few more weeks that would push it to June. The problem with that and a worldwide launch is not only is it the summer but it's World Cup season.

 

Generally this doesn't affect the US too much (lol) but for everyone else it's a major cultural event where a lot of media releases tend to avoid it. For example there's a few blockbuster films including Marvel flicks that are opening in the early summer but in the UK and Europe those releases have been bumped back to August and September to avoid the event.

 

So kick it back to the fall to avoid all that and have even more time to polish and crack on bugs. Either way I think October is set and the game is going to be much better for it.

 

Thankfully 2018 is stacked with some stellar titles just like 2017 where October will be here before we know it. The big silver lining is also the bevy of previews, screens and footage we'll see over the next months.

This is the point that people are missing. Delaying until October doesn't mean they need all that extra time for development or to "fix major issues".

 

It means they wasn't going to make their original window of May-ish, and june-august is a no go (summer, e3, world cup etc).

 

At the end of the day, more development time is only a good thing for us, and as much as we all want to play it, the end result will be worth the wait. At least we've got a date and not just another season to aim for.

 

We've got Westworld in the spring so that should hopefully help feed our need for western entertainment! And I can't imagine it'll be that long before the marketing campaign kicks off

"The marketing campaign is finally starting"

I said for the third time since late 2016

 

Just FYI too, this puts them even further behind their 2012 outline, at this rate RDR2 might be the only new game they release this generation, where as the original plan was was GTAV DLC > RDR2 > New IP > Next GTA riding out up to late 2019.

 

Essentially being...

2013 - GTAV.

2014 - GTAV NG/PC + DLC 1 and 2 + GTAO

2015 - GTAV DLC 3 + GTAO

2016 - GTAO

2017 - RDR2

2018 - New IP

2019 - Next GTA title

 

Has become...

2013 - GTAV

2014 - GTAV NG + GTAO

2015 - GTAV PC + GTAO

2016 - GTAO

2017 - GTAO

2018 - GTAO + RDR2

2019 - ???

We are in the darkest timeline bros green day reference?

Great points, forgot about the World Cup actually. Also, like you said, there are good games coming out in 2018 and I didn't want any overlap with Far Cry 5 or The Crew 2

5 Years and 1 and a Half Months since Rockstar released a NEW game. Over 6 years in development time for ONE game.

youve got to think about how newer gen consoles came out between then and this is their true first game on next gen. Built from the ground up and not just ported over, so yeah. Its gonna take some time buddy.

 

 

This will be their ONLY game developped on that current gen of consoles, and they will probably have the opportunity to do a light overhaul like they did with GTA V with current gen, and then wait way beyond half life of the next gen plateforms to release a GTA VI, it will probably end up with a 10 years hole between V and VI....

There won't be another delay. I don't know why people are insinuating that.

 

We have a final release date.

If they delayed it a third time, then they can go f**k themselves. It would be nice if R* gave us sp dlc for GTA V to make up for the delay.

^ No, please let's move on from V once and for all. It has been V/Online for 4.5 years now ... it's time to put focus on RDR2.

Haven't even followed anything RDR related because it's not coming to PC any time soon, but I'm wondering how some of you guys can actually be suprised. They gave no certain date and said "Spring 2018", and yet didn't even release a second trailer, screenshots and/or info. It was obvious it was getting delayed way back in October-November 2017.

I'm 100% sure they knew this a long time ago, it's just their strategy for game releases.

 

And those graphics are definitely straight from the engine, it's not gonna look like that on your console folks. #RealityCheck
