Red Dead Redemption gets 3 week delay

Bad news folks, Red Dead Redemption will get a 3 week delay putting the release date for the western title back from its original April release to 18th May 2010 in USA and 21st May 2010 in Europe. No specific reason is given for the delay and this is unlikely to change however the good news is Rockstar say the new May release date will be Final. This is good news as it means the game is unlikely to begin a slippery slope of delays. They state that the extra few weeks will allow them to polish and perfect the game before release and promise the extra time will be well worth the wait.

"With Red Dead Redemption, we felt that these extra few weeks will make a big difference in helping us deliver you an experience beyond your expectations."
