Now Playing: New Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer Coming This Week - GS News Update

After multiple delays, Red Dead Redemption 2 will release on October 26, 2018. It will be available for PS4 and Xbox One. Take-Two, the parent company of developer Rockstar Games, has said it is "confident" that the game won't be delayed again.

"The entire focus of this organisation is on delivering the highest quality entertainment experiences of any kind," CEO Strauss Zelnick said during an earnings call held in February. "More often than not, we feel proud that we're able to do that. All of our labels are focused on releasing a title when they reach that apex of effort and perfection. And in this instance, Rockstar Games felt more polish was required, and naturally we are in favour of that decision [to delay Red Dead Redemption 2]. The date of October 26 is set, and I am confident that will be the release date. We are incredibly excited about it."

Fans of Rockstar's open-world western game were given a compelling reason to replay the first Red Dead Redemption when an update for the Xbox 360 version was released for Xbox One X. With this patch, Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One X runs at a higher resolution and features other visual improvements. It's currently the definitive way to play Red Dead Redemption.
