Red Dead Redemption


 

Red Dead Redemption 2 was recently pushed out of its fall 2017 release window into spring 2018, and now Rockstar parent company Take-Two has narrowed down this new window—and provided a tease for another big sequel on the way.

Take-Two Interactive has now elaborated on Red Dead Redemption 2‘s recent delay, confirming that it has been pushed it into the company’s 2019 fiscal year, which runs from April 1st, 2018, through March 31st, 2019. That sets the game’s earliest possible release as April 1st, 2018. April or May 2018 would still fall into the promised spring 2018 window, but it is a bit later in the season than eager PS4 and Xbox One fans were hoping for.

“Such decisions are not made lightly and are driven by our team’s unwavering commitment to unparalleled quality,” commented Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick regarding the delay.

Zelnick also offered a response to fan anticipation for the game, stating:

It’s not really my nature or our nature to claim victory before it occurs; it’s more our nature to do the very best we can to delight consumers and then report the results. To say that we’re highly confident about Red Dead Redemption 2 is an extraordinary understatement. But I’m not sure that really matter.… It’ll be released, and consumers get to vote.

This anticipation for the publisher’s fiscal year 2019 lineup was bumped up even further when the publisher confirmed the release of “a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises.” There was no mention of which property would be making its return. While Borderlands 3 is the likely candidate, many fans are holding out hope for a new Bioshock.

Unfortunately, Take-Two confirmed that none of its properties will be shown off at E3 2017. Presumably, fans will have to wait until late summer to get a first look at Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay, as well as this new project.
