Rockstar Games' open-world Western Red Dead Redemption is heading East. According to Andriasang, the latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu reveals that Rockstar's latest is due October 7 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Japan.
Red Dead Redemption exploded onto shelves in North America and Europe in May. Since then, the open-world action game has won rapt reviews across the board, sold more than 5 million units, and has four distinct downloadable content packs planned for it in the coming months.
In other John Marston-related news, Rockstar is planning to actively hunt down and eradicate cheaters from the world of Red Dead Redemption beginning in August with the game's upcoming title update.
Earlier this month, Rockstar confirmed to GameSpot that it had enacted a round of layoffs at its San Diego studio following the launch of Red Dead Redemption. According to the Take-Two subsidiary, the layoffs were a result of the studio's wrapping development on its latest blockbuster game.
