Sad news for all virtual cowboys – Rockstar has announced that the premiere of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be delayed. According to the company, the action adventure is expected in October.

The new release date is Oct. 26, which places Red Dead Redemption 2 in a battle for the attention and wallet of gamers in the traditionally busiest holiday season.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Trailer

The company didn’t explain much, but justifies the reason with the traditional need for more time to get the product done. Like Blizzard, Rockstar rarely releases new titles, but usually every one of them is worth the wait and we have no reason to believe Red Dead Redemption 2 will be an exception.

The game follows Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang this time around. A trailer shows off heists, combat and brief glimpses at the story. Arthur Morgan, who appears to be the game’s central character, is, as a disembodied voice says, “a wanted man.”

Throughout the minute and-a-half trailer, he can be seen accosting others for owed money, threatening to kill young men and hurting plenty of others.

While as of right now it appears to follow a new cast of characters, series mainstay and antagonist Dutch Van der Linde can be seen at the very end of the trailer talking to Morgan. As Dutch commits suicide in the previous game, Red Dead Redemption, it stands to reason this is a prequel.
