Last week, Rockstar Games announced the release date of Red Dead Redemption 2, which also represented another disappointing delay. Fortunately, Take-Two, the company that owns Rockstar Games, is confident that there will be nothing that causes another change on this date.
As part of Take-Two’s most recent financial report, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of the company, spoke about the delay of Red Dead Redemption 2 making it clear that it was necessary since Rockstar wanted to polish the experience. The good news is that he is confident that this situation will not be repeated and that Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive on October 26 in the hands of the players.
“The entire focus of this organisation is on delivering the highest quality entertainment experiences of any kind. More often than not, we feel proud that we’re able to do that. All of our labels are focused on releasing a title when they reach that apex of effort and perfection. And in this instance, Rockstar Games felt more polish was required, and naturally we are in favour of that decision [to delay Red Dead Redemption 2]. The date of October 26 is set, and I am confident that will be the release date. We are incredibly excited about it,” Zelnick said.
In case you do not know, Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally scheduled to debut in the fall of 2017; however, Rockstar decided to delay it in the spring of 2018. As you know, this date will not be fulfilled either, since the project was delayed at the end of October of this year.
In other news, alleged details were leaked yesterday about the campaign and the multiplayer of the game. According to the source, the title of Rockstar Games will feature a Battle Royale mode that will include the best of PUBG.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive on October 26 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
