    In news that will shock no-one, Rockstar Games have today announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 - previously scheduled for release this year; will now slip to Spring 2018.

    A slew of new screenshots have been released to tide over those hungry for news on the anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed open-world Western game released back in 2010. Check them out below...

    I can't believe the game everyone thought would get delayed got delayed!

    Really, though, those screenshots look sweet.

    Yeah, it's bound to be an incredible game. They can take all the time they need as far as I'm concerned. The screenshots ooze atmosphere and I can't wait to play it.

    I know why it was... They saw Zelda's review scores.
    All joking aside this looks like a fantastic game.

    Hear that EA? This is how you do things properly.

    Next time delay your damn game, instead of releasing a Joke Effect.

    But wasn't Mass Defect delayed for a long time anyway?
    Not that it paid off at all, but just saying.

    Definitely, though, I'd rather play it on my pro earlier. And play it on PC at 4k when it's available

    Hope they're delaying it to hire writers who don't suck this time around.

    It's going to be BOTW all over again, it will get lots of high marks, some "pro" reviewer will give it a 7/10 and he'll be doxxed or whatever, then there will be a 7/10 on the GBATemp review section, and blogs saying that it's not a 10/10 game.

    What a pity. Good that I'm not interested. :-)

    Still a shame for the fans.

    Still haven't played Red Dead Redemption 1 :P
    Really should get around to it, tho, becoz it seems like one of those titular titles that everyone should play eventually. Might be time to blow the dust off the ol' 360

    Play it. It's one of the best games of the previous generation in my opinion.

    I still have to play it seriously. I just can't.
    It is too open, and I end up taking it up, going into a city and skinning a couple of dogs *psycho* and running away in my horse from the furious owners and wannabe bounty hunters. Then I happen to be in the middle of nowhere and without a clue of what to do next. I put it down, until after a month or so when the cycle repeats.
