If you’re eagerly anticipating Red Dead Redemption 2, we have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that it’s coming later than the expected “spring 2018” window (that is, if you consider a delay bad news, which is quite debatable), but the good news is that Rockstar just announced a firm release date.

We will finally be able to ride into the sunset on October 26th, 2018, which is basically two seasons after the previous window.

The motivation for the delay is the usual, with Rockstar requiring “extra time for polish.” We also get an apology for the delay, thanks for the patience, and a bonus batch of screenshots, that you can enjoy at the bottom of the post.

The announcement also mentions that “a lot more information” about the game will be shared in the coming weeks, so the goodies don’t end here.

If you want to see more about Red Dead Redemption 2, you can check out the latest trailer. This is not the first time the game gets delayed, as the release window was already shifted from 2017 to spring 2018.

When it finally hits on (hopefully?) October 26th, the game will come for PS4 and Xbox One.
