Publisher Pushes Back “Red Dead Redemption” Release

Publisher Take-Two announced today that they will be delaying the release of Rockstar’s upcoming western, Red Dead Redemption, by a about a month.  The game was originally set to ship on April 27’th, but Take-Two said that resetting the launch to May 18’th would be; “…the optimal time frame to release what is being hailed as the next generation of sandbox games.”

The only notable change between the two dates is that “Redemption” now falls in the third quarter of Take-Two’s fiscal year:   Most likely, Take-Two shifted the release to somehow make the company look better for its shareholders.  Since Rockstar had nothing to do with the shift, it makes sense to believe that the delay was not over development issues.
