Howdy partners. Looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 has been red dead delayed until 2018, because that's what happens when Rockstar Games announces a title's release date.
In a press release, Rockstar says it's the first game they're building from the ground up for the current generation, and so "some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans." Darn it, *spits into a bucket* darn tootin, raggedy dang, darn. What in tarnation.
The company went on to apologize, saying:
“We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready. We are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer. In the meantime, please enjoy this selection of new screenshots from the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.”
Check out the screen shots in the press release. They're purdy. Yeehaw.
