Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch in spring 2018, piublisher Rockstar Games announced. The game, which is headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, was originally set to be released this fall. “This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans,” the company said in a post.
Previous Rockstar titles for PS4 and Xbox One, namely Grand Theft Auto 5, launched first on last-gen systems. To make up for the delay, Rockstar Games promised fans of the Western action series two things: that there would be “more details about the game this summer” and a selection of new screenshots to check out.
