Originally planned for a Spring 2018, Rockstar Games has confirmed today that Red Dead Redemption 2 has now moved back to a October 26 release. But really, let’s be honest here – pretty much everyone saw this coming. Spring 2018 was a idealistic reach, and judging by the the new screenshots they’ve previewed today, that reach is going to take much longer to grasp.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the upcoming sequel to the western classic Red Dead Redemption released way back in 2010. The sequel focuses on Arthur Morgan, an outlaw and member of the Van der Linde gang. We talked about this briefly when the game was first announced back in September, but we think the sequel is actually going to be prequel!
Either way we’re just excited to get a new Red Dead game. It’s been a while since the last good western game, so we’re ready to saddle our horses, load our revolvers, and head back out into the great west. One question remains though – will the game be for PC?
The original Red Dead Redemption didn’t – and still hasn’t – gotten a PC port, and the chances of it are getting dimmer and dimmer as time goes on. We’re not exactly sure what’s stopping Rockstar from doing it, seeing how popular Grand Theft Auto V is on Steam. There’s been a lot of fan demand for it but Rockstar has still been silent about it.
Whatever the reason, we hope that at some point they do confirm a PC release. The new screenshots are just absolutely gorgeous and they’d look great on a powerful PC rig. Enjoy the screenshots and buckle up – it’s going to be quite some time before we see the long-awaited sequel to one of the best western-themed games ever.
