'Red Dead Redemption 2' Gets Another Delay

'Red Dead Redemption 2' Gets Another Delay
From Uproxx - February 1, 2018

Rockstar famously takes its time with its games, and so it is with Red Dead Redemption 2. While theyve teased the game repeatedly, theyve also delayed it twice. And, sadly, it appears that we will be seeing yet another delay, as the new adventures of Dutchs gang are getting shifted to Halloween, instead of the spring.

If youre unfamiliar, Red Dead Redemption 2 follows a criminal gang across a fictional Old West, much of which appears to have happened in the same locales and timeline as Grand Theft Auto V. The exact details of the plot are under wraps, but it appears to be a prequel, however tangentially, to the original game.

That said, its a sprawling, detailed open world game from a studio that spares no expense and fills its games with a giant pile of things to do, and this is a sequel to a game that was an enormous surprise hit to boot. So you cant really fault them for not wanting to screw this one up, although the new date, October 26th, isnt really that far away.
