Why Is There No Game In Red Dead Redemption 2 Collector’s Edition? It’s About Giving the Choice

Rockstar says that the collector's box is not an edition of the game instead it is designed as a separate companion package of collectibles for fans of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Rockstar Games recently announced limited editions for their upcoming game “Red Dead Redemption 2”. These limited editions include Special Edition, Ultimate Edition, and Collector’s Box.

If you are a die-hard fan of the game you might have loved all the editions mentioned above but you might be also wondering why there is no physical copy of the game in Collector’s box edition of the game.

Luckily, Rockstar responded to address the confused people by saying:

“Just to clarify, the Collector’s Box is not an ‘edition’ of the game — it’s designed as a separate companion package of collectibles for fans of RDR2.

In order to ensure players can pair the Collector’s Box with the game edition of their choice (physical or digital), the Collector’s Box does not include a copy of the Red Dead Redemption 2 game.”

These new strategies by Rockstar have disappointed many fans. There’s something for everyone with a different price. Make sure to check SegmentNext’s Pre-order guide for Red Dead Redemption.

Though on the other side there’s a lot of stuff included in the Collector’s Box edition of the game which is worth paying the price for.

Collector’s Box Edition includes:

  • Metal Tithing Box with Lock & Key: Inspired by the lockbox used by the Van der Linde gang to stash contributions to the camp’s upkeep.
  • Collectible Challenge Coin: Featuring the majestic American Buffalo on one side and a scenic landscape on the other side.
  • Double Sided Puzzle: 100-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle features an illustrated view of the bustling port of Saint Denis on one side.
