Red Dead Redemption 2 has sadly been pushed back from fall 2017 to spring 2018. But in making the delay announcement today, publisher Rockstar Games did toss a bone to fans who are surely crushed to hear the news: a glimpse at the game in the form of seven new images. (These are technically the first proper screenshots of Red Dead Redemption 2 — the only thing Rockstar had released until now was the game’s debut trailer back in October.)
“We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready,” Rockstar said in a statement.
Obviously, it’s a bummer for all of us that we’ll have to wait an extra four to six months to play the follow-up to Red Dead Redemption, a game that was released all the way back in May 2010. But Rockstar also noted today that it will provide the first real details about Red Dead Redemption 2 “this summer.” That gives us plenty of time to gawk at the screenshots!
