The Red Dead Redemption 2 release date has been highly anticipated following the rollout of its teaser and trailer last October. Now, more details have surfaced about when gamers from the UK, Australia and the US can possibly expect the game.
Red Dead Redemption is a Western action-adventure title with over 13 million players worldwide as per PC Advisor. The original 2010 version from Rockstar Games was actually the second in the Red Dead franchise. The first was Red Dead Revolver, which was released in 2004.

However, the post was supposedly only for Red Dead Redemption 2?s release date in the UK. It did not specify if the game will also be launched in Australia and the US on the same day.
Promotions leading to Red Dead Redemption 2 release date
Nonetheless, fans are excited to get their hands on the sequel soon. The anticipation of gamers were also fuelled as Rockstar Games is recently going all out on its promotions.
According to an update from Zero Lives, the team behind the title began distributing promotional merchandise already. Retailers said they already received the game?s first promotional merchandise starting last week.
These materials will most likely be used for pre-order sales in selected territories that will roll out very soon. It is uncertain if Australia and the US will be included, but it is possible given the huge number of gamers there.
However, such schemes have been controversial due to games that fell short of players? expectations. This is specifically because periods for advance orders take place months before legit reviews about the game are released.
Nonetheless, gamers from the UK, the US, Australia and all over the globe are expected to pre-order the popular title. ?
Based on information that has been circulating online, the sequel will be set in a vast and atmospheric world. It was also described as ?an epic tale of life in America?s unforgiving heartland.?
The title will also integrate a new online multiplayer experience. This will make it similar to the online multiplayer feature of another popular Rockstar title: Grand Theft Auto V.
