    It's delayed because the Houser's are perfectionists and they're not great at realizing that they take forever in the QA process.

    Game delays like this don't even register for me. If I have any reaction to them at all it is appreciation. I like delays. Most of my favourite games of all time had multiple delays.

    Also, I bet they delayed it because they're working on a Switch port! :sarcasm:

    Being able to fish sounds neat.

    If they're modeling it off GTA then I fully expect "heists" and the like. So robbing trains and stagecoaches and all that should be par for the course.

    Poker sounds cool, too. Here's to hoping for the entire old west experience.

    That time period has always fascinated me.

    I sincerely hope they make it a little more nuanced than "get vehicles and go to a place where you will eventually be in a shootout with a bunch of lawmen", because that made the heists super grating to me in GTA V.

    I mean I'm playing through RDR again and it has poker, liars dice and like 3 or so other mini games, hunting etc. They just need to go a little more in depth this time.
    Yeah hopefully they learn from GTA. I don't want copy, pasted missions in RDR from GTA, but I could see that being the premise of a few.

    Since it's supposed to be about Marston during his criminal days I expect a lot of heists, train robberies and the like.

    Did they have that online, though? I only played the story mode in RR1 because online was kind of lame. The story mode was awesome, tho.

    I'm not sure I haven't tried since I played on 360, I'll check later. I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to put in.

    Wish they would show some gameplay instead of a cinematic trailer, but it is what it is. Seems we're going to have to wait until E3 to actually get a demo.

    Game looks truly breathtaking though - the hype is real.

    If I remember correctly, we didn’t see GTAV gameplay until real close to the release. Pretty sure we can trust Rockstar with gameplay at this point.

    Looking forward to this.

    Yes, Rockstar very rarely shows gameplay. Clearly their marketing team believes hype is a better marketing tool.

    No game play but they speak to it.

    I've always been a huge fan of GTA, but I never got into Red Dead games. Not that I was particularly against it, I may get this one.
