Red Dead Redemption 2 will not suffer another delay, according to Take-Two big cheese Strauss Zelnick. 

The highly anticipated cowboy-'em-up sequel is pencilled in for release on October 26 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Zelnick, speaking to CNBC's Jim Cramer, said 'hand on heart' that it will make the date.

Red Dead 2's been delayed a few times already, and it's quite a big thing, so naturally folk would be a bit miffed if it gets postponed again.

'When I said hand on heart, it's over 1,000 people at Rockstar Games with their hands on their hearts.'

Rockstar also has a bit of history when it comes to delays. The first Red Dead Redemption was pushed back a few times, while Grand Theft Auto 5 also didn't meet its original release date. 

Looking ahead, the developer is due to spill the beans on Red Dead Redemption 2's Special Editions releases next month.

If one of them doesn't include a swanky cowboy hat (because physical extras that you can wear or do stuff with are awesome), I'll riot.
