Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date Possibly Revealed

Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date Possibly Revealed

That wouldn't normally be newsworthy, retailers put up guestimate dates all the time, but the retailer in question is Coolshop, who have previously leaked the correct release date for Grand Theft Auto V.

Over seven years after the original Red Dead Redemption was released, Red Dead Redemption 2 could finally have a release date - unofficially at least. Will CoolShop beat Rockstar to the punch once more?

Rockstar confirmed in October a year ago that it was developing a sequel to Red Dead Redemption which was released back in 2010.

Coolshop, a Danish retailer, briefly posted a release date of June 8 for Red Dead Redemption 2. A date which has since been removed.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to 2010's Red Dead Redemption and will follow the outlaw Arthur Morgan, a part of the Van der Linde gang.

Tebow finished his career with 88 pasing and 57 rushing tochdowns, while Kaepernick totaled 82 passing and 59 rushing touchdowns. Jackson, who finished second place in Heisman voting this year, now has 130 total yards and two touchdowns to his credit.

Rockstar's highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption series has got fans hyped and ready for the next instalment in the series. This, while disappointing, isn't too big a surprise.

Twitter and social media in general have been on overdrive about this early, and maybe unintended, reveal of the launch date for "Red Dead Redemption 2".

Once again, the time between now and the supposed release window is short, and yet there are no signs of a marketing push.

We've known for awhile that the game would be out in the nebulous "spring 2018", but this, if true, pins things down nicely. Though with Friday releases becoming more common, this could be a possibility.

We're sure Rockstar's PR team has a plan but, if June 8 is indeed the new launch date, you would think The Game Awards earlier this month would have been the flawless time to make the final reveal.
