I wasn't a big fan of RDR partly because I always try to play free roam games as closely as the game was intended and always get sidetracked. I enjoyed it, no doubt, but I found the longevity quickly waned unlike GTA where the scenery was more palatable and relevant.

I will probably wait for it to come on PC before I pick it up just because of the mod potential. That said, I am sitting here pondering why EA has decided to stop producing their NHL series on PC; so much so, I am binging on discussions on the topic and the opinions are mostly split as two possible reasons. 1) it was no longer profitable and they decided to focus on consoles only, hence Madden and NHL are only console exclusives and has been for some time now whereas FIFA with a wider demographic still gets it on PC. 2) Piracy reasons which I guess you could roll into the profitability reasons. With Origin as their gatekeeper of sorts, it would be easier for them to mitigate the losses and still make it worth while.

Sadly, I think people like myself who grew up on the series and loved spending inordinate amount of time customizing the team jerseys, arena advertisements, etc. are no longer the core audience so it's not a big loss to them.

Yeah they don't give a flying F. All based on data. Maybe time to buy a cheap console?

Cheers to them for taking time to make a quality product. I don't mind a delay.
My Amazon preorder had always said Jan 2019 so as far as I am concerned the date has been moved up!

I pre-ordered RDR2 from Amazon for $50, but wondering if I should cancel since it's been delayed so long.

I got an email from Amazon saying they will miss their delivery promise, but my orders page still shows as arriving Oct 26. Did anyone else get that?

got that too.. spoke with a CSR and they said the email was sent by mistake and the order will still be fulfilled

Maybe BS as the item isn't even available from Amazon at the moment - https://www.amazon.ca/Red-Dead-Redempti ... tion+2+ps4

I also got that. Pre-ordered it back in June 2017. My guess is Amazon is purposely delaying the game in hopes that the people who got it for so cheap cancel their orders.

I pre-ordered online. It'll download before release and I'll get to play it right away.

I loved Read Dead Redemption. I played it so much it's the game that gave my 360 the RRoD. Stoked for the sequel.

This will run at full native 4K on the Xbox One X. Excellent news. Since this won't be released for PC (at least not yet anyways) this is the next best thing.

I got that too and I figured it was likely in anticipation of the postal strike.
