Retailer Lists Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date For June

Red Dead Redemption 2

It looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 could be even closer than we previously thought. It could always be a placeholder date, after all.

Today, the reason one such store is making headlines is because they accurately leaked the release date of Grand Theft Auto 5, Rockstar's last big game, several years ago. We will update this article once we hear back.

A fresh Red Dead Redemption 2 release date of June 8, 2018 has been leaked by a Dutch retailer, making it later than Rockstar's teased "Spring 2018" arrival.

Online retailers have a history of accidentally leaking the existence of games or their respective release dates before an official public announcement, and this time one such leak is surrounding Red Dead Redemption 2.

Of course, any retailer listing posted prior to a Rockstar confirmation should be taken with a grain of salt. A date which has since been removed.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch this Spring on Xbox One and PS4.

This means another, albeit minor, delay might be incoming.

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".

Another interesting thing about that timing is that it is literally the Friday before E3 2018, a time when the world will already be buzzing up a storm about video games in general. Most fans thought that Red Dead 2 will be released sooner than June.

Red Dead Redemption II is a prequel to 2010's Red Dead Redemption.

Our minds work in a way that make the difference between "a few months" and "half a year" seem astronomical. Now, did they know the release date ahead of time or just successfully guess the release date?
