Some players have been reporting that they’ve been getting fake Red Dead Redemption 2 beta invites that were urging them to try the game’s nonexistent beta. While the possibility of a beta for the game is something that’s really appealing, it’s doubtful that Rockstar will hold a beta anytime soon, if ever.
It’s a very sloppily done fake Red Dead Redemption 2 beta, too; rather than trying to disguise themselves as Rockstar devs, the Twitter account that was handing out the fake beta keys labeled itself RedDead2Beta and is using the same font of text that Bungie used in its Destiny 2 beta.
Furthermore, the fake Twitter account is apparently based in Queens, in New York City. Rockstar, though it’s headquartered in New York City, isn’t located in Queens. And, finally and most importantly, Rockstar Games doesn’t do betas at all. It releases its games when they were good and ready, and they even put up a page saying, very clearly, that there will not be a pre-release beta for Grand Theft Auto 5.
So, if you’re one of those people that really wants to play Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re going to have to wait like the rest of us. Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to come out sometime early next year, even though it was supposed to release near the end of this year. However, Rockstar delayed it to work on it some more.
So put all thoughts of a fake Red Dead Redemption 2 beta out of your head, and in the meantime just join up with all of the other gamers that are just looking forward to the game coming out.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to come out sometime in the second quarter of 2018, and will be releasing on the Xbox One and the Playstation 4 when the time comes for it to release. In the meantime, gamers and fans should just be patient.
