red dead redemption 2 release date

Grand Theft Auto V publisher Take-Two Interactive has shed some more light on the Red Dead Redemption 2 release date during its quarter 3 2017 earnings conference call today.

There’s been rumors going around this week that launch date may be delayed after a trailer, which was apparently supposed to be shown during this week’s SuperBowl, didn’t feature. Take-Two has now confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch in fiscal 2018, between October 1, 2017 and September, 2018. A specific release date was not confirmed.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been in development since 2014. Some of the first details leaked confirmed “incredible emotional depth” and the possibility of playing with more than one character.

The first Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer was brief, but showed seven mysterious, shadowy figures riding off into the sunset. We’re expecting further details over the coming weeks.

“With Red Dead Redemption 2, the team is working hard to push forward our vision for interactive entertainment in a truly living world," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "We hope to deliver players an epic experience that builds upon everything we’ve learned making games."

Launch sales for Red Dead Redemption 2 are expected to be huge following growing anticipation from fans of the original Wild West adventure.
