Red Dead Redemption 2 release date possibly leaked by UK retailer

When the rumors of a Red Dead Redemption sequel turned into an actual Rockstar announcement, fans went wild. It was borderline irrelevant when the game would come out as the only thing people cared about was the fact that it was actually coming out. After the dust settled, people revisited the subject with newfound curiosity about when players might see the game on shelves.

With nothing but “Fall of 2017” as an indication, all there was left was to speculate. That might no longer be the case, as a UK retailer managed to potentially leak the release date of the long anticipated game. On their website, UK retailer Littlewoods listed Red Dead Redemption 2 as available for pre-order.

Not only that, but they also provided a release date for the title: October 2nd. Some are rightfully skeptical of this release date and there is every reason for it to be false. However, it is completely possible the date is actually correct.

From a marketing perspective, there are no major flaws in choosing this date as it would respect the “Fall of 2017” announcement made by Rockstar while also strategically positioning the game on a release time frame that doesn’t include other Game of the Year contenders such as Star Wars Battlefront 2 or the new Assassin’s Creed game.

Regardless of what date turns out to be correct, we still have a long wait ahead of us with the game definitely coming out no sooner than fall. That means that a lot can happen before we get our hands on it, including more news, trailers or general information about the fame coming from Rockstar themselves.
