Rockstar Games seems to be gearing up to another marketing blitz for Red Dead Redemption 2. They have recently invited select members of the press and shown them gameplay footage from the game. There is also a good chance that they might even release a gameplay demo ahead of the game’s launch this October, although it won’t happen soon as it was the case last time they invited the press.
The first evidence of the demo being shown the press was shared by a journalist on Instagram who later deleted his image, but not before it was saved on Reddit. The picture that he shared showed Rockstar Games meeting room for the demo. He confirmed in the comments that Rockstar did a new set of previews for the press.
More evidence suggests that marketing is slowly ramping up. Game stores are getting merchandise and marketing material from Rockstar. Official t-shirts for the game are getting leaked ahead of the launch.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will officially launch on October 26th. Rockstar Games has released 2 story trailers for the game but they haven’t shown a proper look at the gameplay footage so far. If the latest round of rumors is to be believed, they might be finally showing a proper gameplay demo for it soon, or perhaps it will be limited to just press previews for the gameplay.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch for the PS4 and Xbox One on October 26th.
