Rockstar Studios officially announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 back in October and fans all over the world welcomed the news. Game right now is in active development. Fall 2017 was the released date which was given out by Rockstar but now the day and date might have been leaked by an online retailer.
U.K. retailer Littlewoods listed Red Dead Redemption 2 as being scheduled to release on October 2, 2017, as recently as this morning, according to a report from MS Power User. Since then, the storefront has removed that date and replaced it with December 29, 2017, which is likely to be a placeholder.
We still have to see if the original date was the placeholder, or did Littlewoods erroneously publish a legitimate release date ahead of Rockstar’s official reveal? Right now we can’t say for sure but game is scheduled to launch in fall 2017.
Red Dead Redemption 2 turns out to prioritize multiplayer in the same way that Grand Theft Auto V has done, it’s perhaps reasonable to expect an early October launch, as Rockstar will be eager to beat out their competition. With new installments of Destiny, Star Wars Battlefront, and Call of Duty expected to hit before the year is out.
