Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar’s highly anticipated sequel to the 2010 Red Dead Redemption, has been delayed to a Spring 2018 release date. Fans are going to need to wait a little longer to start roaming the unforgiving Wild West once again.

Rockstar issued an apology to their fans and asked for their understanding. They wrote that Red Dead Redemption 2 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.”

Naturally, the reaction hasn’t been forgiving. Gamespot noted that stock prices have dropped hard for the game’s publisher, Take-Two. As you can see from the screenshot taken around the stock market’s closing at 4 PM ET, the stock price went from $69.04 to $62.90 today.

Rockstar has also attached a brief teaser to the announcement. To keep fans excited for the game, they’ve attached a series of gorgeous new screenshots.

You can take a look at them below. They offer a good taste of what’s to come, and tells us we’re in for one hell of a game.


Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch for Xbox One and PS4 in Spring 2018. We’ll hopefully learn more about the game by the time E3 rolls in.
