The success of the "Red Dead Redemption" video game is undeniable that a sequel comes to no surprise and a major must-have. While several reports and speculations about "Red Dead Redemption 2" have been making rounds for quite some time already, it seems like fans are getting tired of waiting since no official announcements from the game developer have been released up to this writing.
Despite the scanty details, some fans endured clinging to "Red Dead Redemption 2" and get excited with its latest developments. Now, new reports claimed that the most-wanted game will be released this year at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo some time in September.
Movie News Guide reported that the "Red Dead Redemption 2" game will be released to Xbox One and PS4 in October 2016. In other words, if these reports are true, it is possible that the avid "RDR" gamers will no longer have to wait for next year.
The statement of Straus Zelnick sparked reports that the much-anticipated game will be released within this year. Being the Take Two CEO, he revealed that "Red Dead Redemption" is already permanent.

"It's obvious that GTA is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that 'Red Dead' is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or Borderlands, for example, and NBA and others," he added.
Meanwhile, there were also reports claiming that the upcoming "Red Dead Redemption" sequel is set in Japan. While this remains unconfirmed, several critics have already claimed that it is highly impossible.
