Red Dead Redemption heads for April

Update: new trailer saddles-up early.

Update: The Red Dead Redemption trailer has ridden into town a week early, confirming a release date of 27th April. That's a Tuesday, so we're likely to get either a worldwide simultaneous launch or a European release on 29th April.

The spilled video can be found on PlayStation Pure (via VG247).

Original story: Rockstar has announced that Western sequel Red Dead Redemption will be released in April next year. It wasn't more specific than that.

The developer also said that there will be a new trailer next week, on 1st December, called "My Name is John Marston". Trust Rockstar to hype its hype.

Red Dead Redemption is part of a packed first half of 2010 for publisher 2K, joining Bioshock 2 (February), Mafia II and Rockstar's own Max Payne 3.

The open-world oater is for Xbox 360 and PS3. It's set at the turn of the 20th century and follows the tale of former outlaw Marston as he's recruited in muddy circumstances by the government Bureau.

Rockstar's largely been keeping the game under its Stetson so far - rewind to our May preview to learn everything we know.
