Both GTA V and RDR2 are developer by Rockstar Games.

Luckily, a Danish retailer who previously leaked the release date for Grand Theft Auto V's remaster months in advance has listed Red Dead Redemption 2 for a June 8th, 2018 release date.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be the third instalment in the Red Dead franchise, following its 2010 predecessor and 2004's Red Dead Revolver, which was released two generations back on the Xbox and PlayStation 2. If this is to mean anything, the game will have an online mode where the Cards will be in effect.

A potential release date appeared on Danish storefront Coolshop's website. Today we learned that the release date for Rockstar's highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 may have been leaked. The date is also a Friday, which, next to Tuesday, is a popular release day for high profile games. The retailer predicted that the game will be released November 14 2014 and in fact the release took place on November 18.

Winston led a pair of 75-yard scoring drives in the opening half, but was also intercepted twice before halftime. Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan picked up his 13th sack of the season, on a play that ended the first half.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" was supposed to come out this year, as WCCF Tech recalls.

We'll keep you posted as the story develops. A date of June 8, 2017 is clearly seen in the screenshot below.

Our minds work in a way that make the difference between "a few months" and "half a year" seem astronomical.

All of this needs to be taken with a huge grain of salt as Rockstar has not released any official information on the games release date.
