Rockstar announced earlier this week that the long-awaited Red Dead Redemption 2 is delayed until spring 2018. Also, taking advantage of the results of the new report of Take Two, which among other things has revealed that GTA V has sold more than 80 million copies worldwide, the company’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, wanted to comment on the delay of Red Dead Redemption 2 for PS4 and Xbox One.
In an earnings call recently, Take Two thinks that the launch window of Red Dead Redemption 2 is not the most important and have shown their full support and confidence to Rockstar after the decision to delay the most awaited game.
In the words of the CEO of Take Two: “For a game like Red Dead Redemption 2, I do not think the launch window really is the most important. The first Red Dead Redemption went on sale in May and was an extraordinary success. Consumers are consuming entertainment year-round now; they don’t stop in the summer months. We believe that if you give people an extraordinary experience, they will show up for it.”
In the same way, Strauss Zelnick wanted to show his full support for Rockstar and its decision to delay Red Dead Redemption 2 by arguing that “its purpose is to ensure the best possible experience.”
We remind you that Red Dead Redemption 2 will go on sale from April 2018 and a few weeks ago we told you that Gustavo Santaolalla, composer of the soundtrack of The Last of Us, could be working on the music sheet of Red Dead Redemption 2, although there is still no official confirmation about it.
