Rockstar games has announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 will now be releasing in spring 2018. When it was officially announced back in October it was slated for autumn 2017. 

Rockstar says that 'Some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans,' and 'We are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer,' so look out for more RDR2 info around E3.

Almost as if to distract us, or as a kind of palliative measure for our disappointment, Rockstar also released the first screenshots. They're very detailed. Please enjoy looking at the intricate scrolling on a gun in the gallery below:
