Sadly, “Red Dead Redemption 2” fans would have to wait a little bit longer before they could get their hands on the Western-themed action-adventure game. Developer Rockstar Games has just announced that the game’s release has been pushed back yet again.

On Thursday, Rockstar took to its own website to announce that “Red Dead Redemption 2” is now scheduled for release on Oct. 26, 2018. The company then apologized for the delay saying, “We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay.”

According to Rockstar, the decision to delay the game was necessary because they still need time to work on it. “While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish,” the company explained. “We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it.”

This is the second time Rockstar announced a delay in the release of “Red Dead Redemption 2.” The highly anticipated sequel was originally slated for a fall 2017 release. However, the company announced last year that it has moved the game’s release window to spring 2018.

In hopes of boosting the hype and anticipation for the game as well as make up for the second delay, Rockstar shared new screenshots from the game (found below). The company also noted that it is going to give more information about the game in the coming weeks.

“Red Dead Redemption 2” is the sequel to the 2010 installment in the Red Dead series. It follows Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they do everything to survive including robbing, fighting and stealing.

The upcoming game is slated for release on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There’s no official word on a PC version, thus far. The first installment did not have a PC release, but GameSpot believes Rockstar could bring the sequel to the PC platform because the company’s latest major release, “Grand Theft Auto V,” has made its way to PC.

Meanwhile, IGN reports that “Red Dead Redemption 2” could feature a GTA Online-style multiplayer mode called “Red Dead Online.”
