Red Dead Redemption 2's release date potentially leaked by Danish retailer

Red Dead Redemption 2 release date leak pegs arrival for June 8 Red Dead Redemption 2's release date potentially leaked by Danish retailer

Rockstar has not yet confirmed the release date officially. It should be noted that previously, these "accidental" leaks from Coolshop turned out to be surprisingly accurate. As always, it's important to take this revelation with a grain of salt, as leaks like these aren't to be taken as gospel until Rockstar Games makes an official announcement.

Whether it will be called Cowboy Cards or Horse Cards is a question that remains to be answered but one thing is for sure and it is that Red Dead Redemption 2 looks likely to have microtransactions. The protagonist of the sequel, contrary to expectations of fans, young will not be Marston, but a completely new character.

According to a product page at Coolshop, that as of this writing is still in place, Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on June 8, 2018.

Are you starving for Red Dead Redemption 2 info? Since the leak the date has now changed back to a vague "2018" so maybe Rockstar had a word.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" was supposed to come out this year, as WCCF Tech recalls. For the game to actually be released then, we should be seeing more of a media presence for the game, with tangible marketing materials rolling out in the coming months.

A couple of days and we'll all be correcting our instinctive datings to 2018, and Spring is a lot closer than you think. June 8th would still be considered spring even though it is a month more commonly associated with summer.

Rockstar originally said that the game was going to be released in fall 2017 but that didn't happen.
