Red Dead Redemption II Release Date Possibly Leaked

The same site that gave us GTA V's release date now has one listed for Red Dead Redemption II.

Back when Grand Theft Auto V was still eyeing release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a certain Danish website went ahead and spoiled exactly when we’d be getting the game. Not everyone believed them, but it turned out they were right. And now that same site has listed the release date for Red Dead Redemption II.

CoolShop is the retailer in everyone’s sights this afternoon. They’re stating that Red Dead Redemption II will be launching for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 8th, 2018. That lines up perfectly with Rockstar’s previous announcement that the game would be coming this spring.

It’s not the most credible of sources. But CoolShop is one for one as far as Rockstar release dates go. And with fans clamoring for any tidbit of information they can gather on Rockstar’s upcoming western, this is juicy gossip for late December.

Red Dead Redemption II is a prequel to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption. Players a thrust into the role of the villainous outlaw, Arthur Morgan. But we don’t know much more than that. Rockstar has released two trailers for the game thus far. However, the first was a brief teaser that mainly focused on the luscious environments within the game. And the second, while skirting briefly around the game’s narrative, again spend a majority of its time chewing up scenery.

And what scenery there is. Red Dead Redemption II is a gorgeous game if we can go by its trailers. And with Rockstar’s penchant to deliver AAA narratives, it’s no secret why they are keeping the majority of the game’s plot under lock and key for the time being.

Still, it looks as though we’re less than six months away from one of the biggest games in years hitting our consoles. And we’ll surely have Rockstar do a full blowout for the game in the months to come. Don’t forget though, all this talk of Read Dead Redemption II’s release date is all speculative at this point. We’ll have to wait for Rockstar to confirm one way or another, which likely won’t happen anytime soon.
