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

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

Over seven years after the original Red Dead Redemption was released, Red Dead Redemption 2 could finally have a release date - unofficially at least.

Red Dead Redemption II is a prequel to 2010's Red Dead Redemption.

A retailer based in Denmark has listed the release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 as June 8th 2018.

Shark Card is a microtransaction tool for Rockstar's GTA 5 and it is described as the element that has ruined the game's online experience for the majority of the players.

The listing no longer has the June 8 date on it, with Coolshop changing the expected release date to say just "2018".

Twitter and social media in general have been on overdrive about this early, and maybe unintended, reveal of the launch date for "Red Dead Redemption 2".

While there's every chance the retailer accidentally published a placeholder date in error, Games Informer notes that the very same shop correctly leaked the Grand Theft Auto V release date a few days before it was officially announced. He's an outlaw in the Van der Linde gang. If Coolshop's now-redacted release date is to be believed, it seems we'll be returning to the wild west this summer instead.

And what scenery there is.

Red Dead fans want to know exactly when the game is coming out, and this latest listing could be the first good hint towards that. 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. Now, did they know the release date ahead of time or just successfully guess the release date? We'll have to wait for Rockstar to confirm one way or another, which likely won't happen anytime soon.
