Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date Set For Summer 2018


Danish retailer Coolshop is at it again.

Back in November, we told you how people were so eager for the arrival of Red Dead Redemption 2 that they committed to discovering the game's map size before we even got a release date. However, Coolshop has a history of somewhat accurately leaking Rockstar games' release dates before the dates have been released to the public.

Of course, any retailer listing posted prior to a Rockstar confirmation should be taken with a grain of salt.

A Danish games retailer may have inadvertently leaked the exact release date for Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2.

It's not the most credible of sources. Rockstar confirmed in October of previous year that it was developing a sequel to Red Dead Redemption which was released back in 2010.

As of right now, Rockstar has the western set for a Spring release window. Instead, the last notable thing related to Red Dead actually happened in GTA Online, with that weapon skin cross-promo. The story follows outlaw Arthur Morgan and his Van der Linde gang. We don't now know very much about what the game will entail, but at this point any additional entry in the series is exciting for those looking to see the story continue. However, the first was a brief teaser that mainly focused on the luscious environments within the game.

Still, it looks as though we're less than six months away from one of the biggest games in years hitting our consoles.

Retailer slip-ups can be honest mistakes, as they ready product pages for upcoming games, allowing them to switch the pages live as soon as an announcement is made, with fake information entered into them before the real details are made clear.
