Red Dead Redemption 2 delayed. DELAYED!!!

ffffffffffffFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

 

You know what? This kind of thing happens so often in the past that I don't give a crap anymore. Witcher 3, Persona 5, FFXV, it happens. Looks like Red Dead 2 won't be a GOTY candidate for 2017 after all. 

 

But at least new Red Dead screenshots are out!

Honestly I expected this, I always thought that announced 2017 release date was a bit optimistic.

Som ereason this thread reminded me of PSO2 west... sighhh. *1 year after it was supposed to be released* "it has been delayed"... no shit sherlock.

*3 years after it was supposed to be released without anything so much as a status update*

"It has been delayed".

Just admit you canned the thing. ffs.

 

Not only that, but the south asian release copy, which has since been SHUT DOWN, was released with the content that was from West, as indicated by datamining the files and seeing comments mention it. FUUUU.

I'm not surprised. <_<

As much as I want to say "Better delayed than rushed", there are plenty of games that proved me wrong and I end up eating my own words *Stares venomously at Aliens Colonial Marines*. Still, this is definitely worth the wait.:)

We have been given so little information about the sequel that expecting the game to come out this year felt foolhardy. Yes some publishers are getting better with announcing then releasing but Rockstar never. 

If they need time to make the experience better, go for it. You haven't shown us enough to begin with. Next year will hopefully be massive info dumps up until release.

Publishers need to stop announcing games so ridiculously early, and I'm not talking about teasers and stuff that just say a game is being made, i'm talking about the ones when give dates, whether they be approximate or exact. There is simply no way that announcements of release dates almost a year (or sometimes longer) beforehand can come from a publisher/developer that has so much as a clue whether the game will be ready for said date or not. They do this to open the pre-pay doors as quickly as possible, and it inevitably leads to nothing but frustration from fans when they don't what they payed for when they expect it. Enough of the vague release dates, enough of the unwelcome culture where one is pretty much expected to buy a game and even DLC before it's even finished (And it's not just AAA developers who are guilty of that either, if anything the worst examples are from indie dev's).

I agree a delay is better than a game being released under-cooked, but as I said, most of these delays ultimately come from a game being announced unrealistically early, so there has to come a time when that excuse stops working. Know for a fact that the game will be ready for a said date, and only then announce that date and open up shop for pre-orders. The developers will feel less pressured, do a better job and you wouldn't have to embarrass yourselves buy having to tell the public again and again that the development isn't going as planned. This also increases peoples confidence that the game will be worth it, so they're happier and more likely to actually buy it, so everybody wins!

As expected, I saw it coming from a mile away, Rockstar always delays games.
