Those of you who have been keeping up with Red Dead Redemption 2 will know that it was originally scheduled to launch in July of this year, but it was pushed into October back in February. Fortunately, parent company Take-Two seems wholly confident that another delay won't occur.

Speaking to business network CNBC, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick all but swore that Rockstar's latest will hit its 26th October release date. "Hand on heart," he said. "When I said hand on heart, it's over 1,000 people at Rockstar Games with their hands on their hearts."

So, it sounds like you can lock the date down on your calendar, maybe book a day off work without fear of Red Dead Redemption 2 slipping into next year. Do you plan on diving right into Rockstar's Western sequel? Rally your gang in the comments section below.
