i m seeing Red Dead 2 having and Xbox headed campaign ...maybe it would have also timed exclusive content or DLCs .... would make sense as the previous one was most praised on X360

Overload2382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )


RDR2 has exclusive marketing on PS4. There will be no Xbox headed campaign.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Gets Timed Exclusive Content on PS4

This fall PlayStation has the advertising rights to RDR2, Destiny 2, Call Of Duty 2017 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.

mkis0072382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )


It's already been confirmed to be a PlayStation headed campaign, with some select online content first on ps4.

@Naruga, Sony has the marketing deal for Red Dead 2.

But im waiting to see if it will have a Scorpio patch before I buy on PS4 Pro.

nveenio2382d ago

I hope the marketing deal with Sony isn't consolation for the lack of Agent.

naruga2382d ago

@above ok i didnt know...just made a speculation 'cause of previous Red dead

Ceaser98573612382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )


you sure Star Wars Battlefront 2 is marketed by Sony, i heard this time around Xbox gonna do it and showcase it on Scorpio.. I may be wrong, but that's what i heard.

This screams to me delayed, we have heard nothing for 6 months! it's nearly April and we havnt had any news whatsoever, and it's supposed to be out in 6 months.

I wouldn't be shocked if it's early 2018 for this.

bloop2382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )

That's how R* usually do it though. They don't tend to show of a whole lot of their games beforehand.

SpinalRemains1382382d ago

Or a mess upon Q4 arrival. Either or.

smolinsk2382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )

Spot on, if it was gonna be a sep or oct release then we would have heard something other then the trailer by now. early next year for sure.

E3 gameplay footage, then they will probably do several promotional videos leading up to launch showcasing different aspects of the game!

seanpitt232380d ago

Just to let you guys know that Rockstar hasn't released a game on time without being delayed for a decade.

So I am glad you guys are optimistic.

Well no game play trailer yet.. R* Dont participate on E3 ... Releasing on Sept 2017.. Doesn't add up... But excited for this game.. That being said what IF R* shows RDR 2 on Sony's stage since Sony is doing the marketing for their game... I know there is a 0 percent chance of that happening but then you never know..

"The dates match up with the Fall 2017 planned release period and it’s also on a Tuesday when video games are usually released"

At least do your research, games are traditionally released on a Friday in the UK. Some games get simultaneous releases worldwide which GTA 5 was one of them if memory serves me right but games are not usually released on a Tuesday here. In terms of the credibility.. I hadn't even heard of Base six months ago so wouldn't hold my breath but the release date makes sense, September would be the perfect time for Rockstar to release RDR 2.

Massive AAA games in the UK almost always release on Tuesday. So that's BS.

JamesBondage2382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )

They release on Tuesday in the states as well

sergons2382d ago

Mass Defect was released today, Thursday in uk, eu.

Nitrowolf22382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )



I mean looking at that List alone, a majority of the big titles are out Fridays

Mass Effect
Prey 2
Injustice 2
Crash Collection

Those are just some of them for this Year, there are plenty others and even the ones that don't release on Friday are Usually Wedneday, like the PlayStation Network updates there.

Its not to say games don't release Tuesdays, you just usually see the big ones don't. I know Persona 5 iis getting a World Wide release for PAL and US, Yakuza 0 got the same World Wid erelease date to

Even still, they could be shooting for a same Launch date World Wide

OB1Biker2382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )

I wish but no. UK is always last . MEA only today

Aenea2382d ago

When did Mass Effect: Andromeda release in the UK? Last Tuesday? Today, like in the rest of Europe? Or tomorrow?

I call your 'experience' BS. UK is almost always releasing on the same date as the rest of Europe and tho a nice chunk of the games release on Tuesdays, most release on Friday. And only a few release on Wednesday or Thursday...

Here, your proof: http://www.mcvuk.com/retail...

As you can see there most dates are actually on a Friday....

SinisterKieran2382d ago

I don't think he gets that yes, games can release on a tuesday in the uk.
GTA V was released on the 17th of september 2013..which is of course a tuesday

PapaBop2382d ago

Major AAA games (like one or two a month tops usually) get released on Tuesdays or Wednesday but every other game gets released on Fridays. The two biggest selling games here (fifa and cod) both release on Fridays so to call me out for "BSing" is well, BS.

Loads of games come out on Tuesday in the UK

I live in the UK

pootymcpoockle2382d ago

It's actually Tuesday more often than not. Which is always amazing for me as I have every Wednesday and Thursday off work.

DivoJones2382d ago

September 26th 2017.. managed to read it through the pop up ad that obscures the article. I love websites that push advertising to the point their site is unreadable until you click it away.

crazychris41242382d ago

Thanks bro, thisgengaming is just the worst

Resis7ance2382d ago

This article had the release date for October by yet again more UK retailers. I wouldn't believe a release date until Rockstar confirm it themselves.
