I think a lot of people are pumped for the red dead redemption sequel, I know I am. Rockstar Games seems to really hit the nail on the head and I don’t doubt they will do it again for Red Dead Redemption 2. Who doesn’t love a good western shooter! October 26 can’t come soon enough!
“WHEN’S THE RELEASE DATE?
Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled to launch Oct. 26, 2018, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It was originally due to launch in the fall of 2017, then that was delayed to the spring of this year, and then to October with an announcement back in February.
Back in October 2016, Sony announced it had secured a special deal for timed exclusive access to online content, but didn’t specify what that was.
Update, June 3: On June 2, Microsoft apparently jumped the gun with a listing on its online store divulging the pre-order incentives for Red Dead Redemption 2. They include a “War Horse” skin, a package of digital content called “The Outlaw Survival Kit,” some cash to start the game’s single-player campaign, and $500,000 in money for Grand Theft Auto Online. Preorders by July 31 will get an exclusive treasure map for single-player too.
The details are rather standard come-ons for a pre-order, but they do suggest that Red Dead Redemption 2’s online multiplayer world will trail the main game’s launch by a few weeks, somewhat like Grand Theft Auto Online did for Grand Theft Auto 5 back in 2013.
At any rate, we will likely learn more — including the PlayStation’s exclusive content — at E3 2018.
Update, June 7: Rockstar announced two special editions for Red Dead Redemption 2 packed with online goodies. The Special Edition, for $79.99, and an Ultimate Edition for $99.99. The “Special Edition” includes a mission for the game’s story mode, a new horse, outfit, weapons and other gameplay bonuses. Both are available through digital marketplaces. The Ultimate Edition delivers all of that plus more costumes, weapons and a progression bonus. More details are here.”

An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.” — rockstargames.com
