Rockstar has announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 won’t be seeing the light of day this year, rather it will launch in Spring 2018.
Rockstar explains the decision as one that is necessary due to the game being the first one built from the ground up on current generation hardware.
This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.
The announcement goes on to apologise for the delay
We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready.
As part of the announcement, Rockstar did give us a bunch of images so we can still get hyped for the game and you can check them out below:
Read Dead Redemption 2 is set to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Spring 2018.
