Here is what’s been going on with our favourite upcoming wild west game, Red Dead Redemption 2.
The official release date has already been set to fall 2017. When the fans were laid back, waiting for the exact date to be announced, a Polish retailer just let out a big hint on the very same information. A release date of October 3, 2017 was seen on a MediaMarkt’s listing (the retailer). When MediaMarkt was questioned about its legitimacy, the retailer responded that game’s distributor had informed the store of the new date. The rough translation of the Polish email reads, “I would like to inform you that our marketing department was informed by the distributor of the game that its airing date is 3rd of October 2017”.
But, ever since this response from MediaMarkt, the retailer has changed the date back to its standard placeholder of December 31, 2017. Furthermore, they claimed that the release date of October 3 was an error.
Nobody is sure if this is really true, or it may be one of the occasions where MediaMarkt is trying to run for cover, having leaked an important information. However, as fans, we can ponder and see if the aforementioned release date is feasible. Having said that the game would release in Fall 2017, and also that the first part of Red Dead Redemption released in September 2013, October 3 just look like the “happening” date.
It can’t be said for sure, that Rockstar might react to this controversy and change the release date. That would be their decision, and fans need to wait for their official announcement, while we speculate over this topic.
