Well is this really any kind of surprise? Originally announced in 2016 with this teaser trailer…
The game was given a tentative “Fall 2017” release…which never came about. Red Dead Redemption II was delayed until “Spring 2018” instead as the next trailer showed.
Then, as us fans were patiently awaiting for Spring to well…spring, Rockstar announced yet another delay with a much firmer release date of 26th October 2018. Everything seemed fine until today when Rockstar announced yet another delay (the third for those counting) and we are now not going to be getting our mitts on Red Dead Redemption II until the first quarter of 2019. Unlike the previous delay, no specific date has been set – I guess Rockstar have learned from the last time not to make promises they can’t keep hence the vague 2019 date?
We are sorry to announce that Red Dead Redemption II will be delayed until the first quarter of 2019.
We ‘re utterly focused on delivering a game that will meet the high expectations of the fans. We know its been a long wait so far but it will definitely be worth it in the long run as we aim to deliver an exceptional entertainment experience.
Thank you for your patience,
I’m not sure how I feel about all of this. I mean, on one hand I want the game to be as perfect as it can be, so if that means delays then so be it. But on the other, all of these delays can’t be a good thing can they – isn’t this how Duke Nukem Forever started?
I guess all we can do is take solace in this slideshow of images, some of them are new as an apology from Rockstar…
