Red Dead Redemption


 

Rockstar has announced that Red Dead Redemption 2, its highly anticipated open-world spaghetti Western game, has been delayed until spring 2018.

While the game had not yet been given an official release date, its previous release window was fall 2017, with rumors speculating that the release date would be September 26th. Obviously, that’s no longer the case.

Given Rockstar’s history of delaying games until they’re ready, Red Dead Redemption 2‘s delay isn’t all that surprising. They allude to as much in the official delay announcement, stating that “some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.”

At least Rockstar understands your pain. To soften the blow of the delay, the announcement included a few never before seen screenshots:

Rumors about the game heated up last year when an image of a map that represented familiar Red Dead Redemption geography was posted to NeoGAF. Soon after, the game was officially announced for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will be the first game that Rockstar has developed specifically for the current generation of consoles.
