Earlier this week, there was a leak stating Rockstar Games' highly anticipated game "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date is Oct. 3. However, the retailer, who confirmed this leaked date, retracted from his report calling it a mishap. And, a new date has been revealed.

GameRant had reported that Media Markt, a retailer based in Poland, listed the "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date, which had caused a stir among fans worldwide. The leak was first spotted by a Redditor who saw it on a subreddit talking about the upcoming title.

On further inquiry on the disclosed date, the retailer informed the user that the date was given by a distributor of the upcoming game, who said that the "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date was finalized for October. The retailer further confirmed that he was asked to mention the date on the pre-order page of the game.

However, the disclosed "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date was later retracted by a Media Markt PR Wioletta Batóg. Batóg was further noted of apologizing for the leaked date, as stated in a report by PCGamesN.

Batóg further added that the date revealed for October was a typing mistake by the official working on the game's product description. As far as the new "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date is concerned, Batóg said that the placeholder date has been changed to Dec. 31.

Rockstar Games along with 2K Games have maintained reticence when it comes to "Red Dead Redemption 2" release date and other news. Now that the game is already completed and ready for a launch in later months, leaks related to the game are popping out. A few leaks that have been unveiled talk of the plot to feature actor Matt Bradford, who played the character Dutch in the first game. More details related to the game will soon come up and reveal more about the game story.
