Microsoft may have jumped the gun in terms of giving out info about Red Dead Redemption 2. This is because the Microsoft store leaked some details about the pre-order bonuses for the game.
A user on ResetEra found the leaked store listing and it reveals quite a bit of information. You can read about the details of the pre-order bonuses listed down below.
Pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 to get:
-The War Horse
-The Outlaw Survival Kit
-Cash Bonus for Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode
-Bonus GTA$500,000 to spend immediately in Grand Theft Auto Online. After pre-ordering your copy of RDR2 through the Microsoft Store on Xbox, this GTA$500,000 bonus can be downloaded by searching for “$500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online” on the Microsoft Store
– In addition, pre-order by July 31, 2018 to get an exclusive Treasure Map for Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode.
It goes without saying that this could have been things Microsoft wanted to announce at E3 2018 later this month, so this leak kind of ruined that announcement.
Anyway, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released worldwide on October 26th, 2018. As of right now, the game has only been announced for Xbox One and PS4.
