Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date Leaked by Danish Retailer

Red Dead Redemption 2 release date

Typically, retailers post release dates as placeholders and you can usually dismiss them. It should be noted that previously, these "accidental" leaks from Coolshop turned out to be surprisingly accurate. This is the same bunch that leaked the Grand Theft Auto V console release months ahead of the announcement.

Whether it will be called Cowboy Cards or Horse Cards is a question that remains to be answered but one thing is for sure and it is that Red Dead Redemption 2 looks likely to have microtransactions.

A lot of the leaked release date's validity hinges on if this retailer really has an inside track, or if it just got lucky with Grand Theft Auto 5.

According to Coolshop, a Danish retail site, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be launching on June 8, 2018 even though this could be a mistake for the retail website the date coincides with that of the last piece of information Rockstar gave its fans regarding the date.

What do you make of this potential release date? Rockstar confirmed in October of past year that it was developing a sequel to Red Dead Redemption which was released back in 2010. This, while disappointing, isn't too big a surprise. For the game to actually be released then, we should be seeing more of a media presence for the game, with tangible marketing materials rolling out in the coming months. June 8 also happens to be a Friday, so who knows if we see the same scenario play out again in 2018.

Rockstar keeps their release dates pretty close to the chest, and fairly far out of reach.
