However, the rumored cross-platform feature of "Red Dead Redemption 2" is being hinted as the source of the delay. Rockstar Games is said to be having issues with Sony regarding the cross-platform feature, as Sony believed that it is an avenue for exploitation to happen in their PlayStation network.

To keep such thing from happening, Sony continued to reject all offers pertaining to the cross-platform features of "Red Dead Redemption 2." Rockstar Games’ offer, in one way or another, might just be one of these rejects, Blasting News reported.

The rumored "Red Dead Redemption 2" cross-platform gameplay was first hinted last month and discussion about it have resurfaced during the E3 2017 event.

In other news, Take-two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick announced that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will have more microtransaction than "GTA 5."

Zelnick explained that the company can “do more” in terms of microtransactions “without interfering with their strategy of being the most creative and their ethical approach. He added that they are not going to grab the "last nickel” and they are not trying to optimize the monetisiation of everything they do to the nth degree, Gamerant reported.

Arguably, players will have to look into new items that will cost a large amount of sum to pay, and some are encourage to to grind first before buying, therefore taking the fun out of the game. For casual players it just means that this new, costly content is practically unobtainable.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" will launch sometime in 2018 for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
