Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date May Have Been Leaked

Over seven years after the original Red Dead Redemption was released, Red Dead Redemption 2 could finally have a release date - unofficially at least.

A Danish retailer called Coolshop leaked Red Dead Redemption 2's release date (reported by Game Informer.) Coolshop posted a listing for Red Dead Redemption 2 and it said that Red Dead 2 would be released on June 8, 2018 for the Xbox One and PS 4. Officially, Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled for a spring 2018 launch. This is the same bunch that leaked the Grand Theft Auto V console release months ahead of the announcement.

It's not the most credible of sources. Gamers know by now that the game is set to release in the spring of 2018, unless Rockstar delays it again, but that's never going to be good enough.

That's right, June. Currently, the official word is that the game will be released in Spring 2018, and Spring that ain't. Instead, the last notable thing related to Red Dead actually happened in GTA Online, with that weapon skin cross-promo. Rockstar thus far has been tight-lipped regarding details of the game including the timing of its launch, only slipping us tidbits and trailers here and there.

Samoa, the tiny pacific island was the first country to welcome in 2018, with New Zealand following an hour later. To welcome the new year in Mumbai, the city's historic buildings are decorated with colorful lights.

The sequel will follows the story of another outlaw, Arthur Morgan, a member of the Dutch van der Linde gang. Red Dead Redemption II is a gorgeous game if we can go by its trailers. It's not the first time that Coolshop leaked something about a Rockstar game.

Still, it looks as though we're less than six months away from one of the biggest games in years hitting our consoles. This makes the date featured on its listing more credible, with it possibly letting us in on some insider information.
