Rockstar Games may release Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 20 of this year. Rockstar Games will release the game on PS4 and Xbox One platforms. The upcoming open world western action-adventure game has been said to be revealed this Fall based on the game’s trailer. Rockstar Games first announced the game on October 18 last year.
Why Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Be Released On October 20?
Fans and gamers highly anticipate the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. People basically know nothing about the game because its trailer just showed an immersive environment that players will get to experience if they get the game. There is even nothing cryptic about the trailer that gamers and fans cannot really decode anything about the game.
But, retailers exist to lay down their own assumptions and speculations on the release date and fill in the gap on the release date that fans could not decode. In a listing of Red Dead Redemption 2 by Gameseek, the release date will happen during Fall time, as announced in the trailer. But this time, the specific date is given and claims to fall on October 20 this year.
Another retailer leaked that the game will be released earlier than October 20, which is on October 2. The UK-based store LittleWoods listed this specific release date for the game. To be fair, retailers’ leaks on release dates, platforms and the existence of the whole game are slowly becoming accurate. They are getting hasty in posting updates about the products that they are selling.
According to the RDR2 website, the retail business has to stay in the competition nowadays by telling in advance the release dates of the products that they are selling. The reason for this is so that these retailers can get ready with marketing, displays, shelf-space and all other preparations required in selling the game products. They also highly consider sales budgets and discounts. So, this is why they know more of the game than the consumers actually do.
The game is so highly-anticipated that even Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear Solid, says that the newest Red Dead Redemption is one of the games he is currently looking ahead for. Kojima is a well-renowned personality in the world of gaming. In fact, he has a new project called Death Stranding which features Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus among others.
