Red Dead Redemption 2 promotional materials have been sent off to retailers judging from images that have surfaced online.
Rockstar Games finally announced the Red Dead sequel some months ago but has been rather quiet about the title. The press release mentions that the game will release in the Fall of 2017 for both PS4 and Xbox One, but other than that, nothing has been officially revealed about the open-world action adventure.
Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game's vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.
"With Red Dead Redemption 2, the team is working hard to push forward our vision for interactive entertainment in a truly living world," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games upon the game’s announcement this October. "We hope to deliver players an epic experience that builds upon everything we've learned making games."
Although the game won’t release until late 2017, website RDR2 now reports that promotional materials for the sequel are already being dispatched to retailers, including posters and cardboard boxes. The boxes mention an “Autumn 2017” release instead of merely “2017” or “Fall 2017”. The images of the promotional materials displayed are taken from UK retailer GAME, but it's highly likely that other retailers have received the promotional materials as well.
As said, Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for a release on PS4 and Xbox One late 2017. A PC version hasn’t been announced, but according to everyone’s favorite analyst, Michael Pachter, the title will arrive on PC as well.
