Has 'Red Dead Redemption 2' finally got an actual release date?

Red Dead Redemption 2 release date leak pegs arrival for June 8

Red Dead Redemption 2 release date leak pegs arrival for June 8

At the time this leak was considered to be just another one of those seemingly random placeholders, until Rockstar's official announcement confirmed the date. If Coolshop's now-redacted release date is to be believed, it seems we'll be returning to the wild west this summer instead.

Coolshop is notable as being the retailer who correctly leaked Grand Theft Auto V's release date ahead of schedule. Gamers know by now that the game is set to release in the spring of 2018, unless Rockstar delays it again, but that's never going to be good enough. The protagonist of the sequel, contrary to expectations of fans, young will not be Marston, but a completely new character. According to Danish retailer Coolshop, Red Dead Redemption 2 will release on June 8th, 2018.

Despite our hate for microtransactions, we are glad that Red Dead Redemption 2's primary offering will be in the single player mode hence the Cards won't affect us much unless we truly want to dwell in the online mode. However, Coolshop has a history of somewhat accurately leaking Rockstar games' release dates before the dates have been released to the public.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" was supposed to come out this year, as WCCF Tech recalls.

It should also be noted, June 12 is the first day of E3 2018, the popular LA video game convention, and it would make sense for Rockstar to attempt to capitalize on the hype. Instead, the last notable thing related to Red Dead actually happened in GTA Online, with that weapon skin cross-promo. Usually games developed by Rockstar are out on Tuesdays and June 8 falls on a Friday.
