That wouldn't normally be newsworthy, retailers put up guestimate dates all the time, but the retailer in question is Coolshop, who have previously leaked the correct release date for Grand Theft Auto V.
A possible Red Dead Redemption 2 release date has popped up on Danish retailer Coolshop's website. A listing for the title mentions a June 8th, 2018 release date for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It also lists the same date across both the Xbox One and PS4 skus, which lends a bit more credence to this not just being a random placeholder date for the time being.
Red Dead Redemption 2, the new open world game now in development by Rockstar Games, has yet to receive a release date for North America and Europe outside a generic 2018 release window, but there's a good chance it may release close to the first half of the year. This game can't come soon enough. However, Coolshop has a history of somewhat accurately leaking Rockstar games' release dates before the dates have been released to the public. Will CoolShop beat Rockstar to the punch once more?
Rockstar's highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption series has got fans hyped and ready for the next instalment in the series. And with complete radio silence ever since the release of the second trailer being enforced, things are looking a lot like the prelude to the previous delay. 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.
We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
Our minds work in a way that make the difference between "a few months" and "half a year" seem astronomical.
Rockstar is yet to confirm the release date officially, though.
