Just proves that gaming season is looking less and less attractive when you factor in low AAA sells this gen thanks to to the holiday rush. I don't buy many games during the holiday like I use to just like pre-ordering is dying down. Sony imo has it figured out that's why they release their major games earlier in the year so they can see those maximum sells.

I mean, not really.

Simply proves that Rockstar wanted more time with Red Dead 2.

I don't think they moved a finished game to spring just for that and are not working on it or something. If anything, Rockstar was going to own the fall with that game. GTA and Read Dead are the type of games you move YOUR game because of, not the other way around.

They likely just need to finish the game.

It could be both, but its more likely it just needed more time. Nothing else this fall is coming out that is NEAR what Red Dead is, they sorta own that genre in the fall time, trust me.

I want to agree since logically that makes sense and Sony track record proves it. BUT. Rockstar is a special case. Not sure how close you follow the devs, but last year they simply changed their Twitter icon from the iconic black and yellow R* to the red and black R*. And Twitter F'n LOST IT. RDR2 was trending before it was announced simply because of a color scheme on a logo. It was even the top story on N4G. A Twitter profile pic. Top story. No announcements. Rockstar is on a level where they don't have competition. Release dates are nothing but a starting point for sales. They generate hype like no other company. There's not a single game any developer could put out that would make Rockstar worried about it affecting their sales. If RDR2 and TLOU2 came out on the same day. Every single person wanting both those games (who have a PS4 anyway) will get those 2 games. If that means selling their old games, saving up months in advance etc.

Blu3_Berry2325d ago

I'm in no rush. Just make it a damn good game.

Deep-throat2325d ago

Me too bro. But I hope this game will be on PC!

crazychris41242325d ago

Hopefully we get the PC version at the end of the year

Would make sense since their "New Gen of Consoles" argument doesn't apply.

_-EDMIX-_2325d ago

Knowing RockStar's history, its very likely going to be the next year (2019) if it even happens at all.

keki2325d ago

it will probably be ported from console just like GTA V...and it was release to pc a year later..

cartoonx12324d ago

that cause there was a new console gen at the time. so they wanted to do separate release. this time since the game will be same for both ps4/pro and xbox/scorpio.
