Game enthusiasts were disappointed regarding the delay of the upcoming western action-adventure video game, “Red Dead Redemption 2.” However, the game’s delay opens up an opportunity for big-name gaming companies, such as Electronic Arts (EA) and Ubisoft.

The Electronic Arts company sees the delay of the “Red Dead Redemption 2” as an opportunity for growth. As reported by DVS Gaming, during an interview of EA CFO Blake Jorgensen with SeekingAlpha, the CFO spelled out how their firm looks at the release date delay of the upcoming game. Jorgensen stated that they have discovered in the past that EA company had many times looked daunting for the reason of the competition.

Jorgensen noted that when Rockstar Games rolled out “GTA 5,” it generated a similar scenario. But, as EA has always competed with other major video game companies, Jorgensen stated that the delay of the game doesn’t bother them, but rather excites them, and it does open up an opportunity for other video game developers.

Ubisoft ‘s point of view of the delay

Ubisoft, on the other hand, also sees the delay of the western action-adventure video game as something favorable for them. According to Vine Report, Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez made it known that the absence of “Red Dead Redemption 2” will have a positive effect on the company’s 2018 fiscal year. Martinez also said that the game’s delay has given them a better opening to roll out some of their titles.

Game Spot also reported that the French video game publisher is expecting their sales for the second quarter to boost by 34 percent. Several tech analysts are expecting that the third DLC of the fighting game, “For Honor,” would help increase the sales of Ubisoft for the fiscal year.

Ubisoft upcoming titles

In addition, Ubisoft will also roll out two big games this year.

The role-playing video game, “South Park: The Fractured But Whole,” is expected to be available on October 17, while the action-adventure video game, “Assassin’s Creed: Origins,” is slated to hit the shelves on October 27.

However, one of the possible reasons for the delay of the western action-adventure game is that its video game developer is looking to launch a cross-platform multiplayer for PS4 and Xbox One gamers.

Meanwhile, as the RDR2 is one of Rockstar Games most-anticipated titles, Take-Two Interactive CEO Straus Zelnick does not believe the unreleased game can match “GTA 5’s” sales performance. While RDR2’s development team is flourishing the game to deliver an amazing experience to the gaming community, Take-Two Interactive CEO is doubtful about the game’s success.
