It’s going to take a while to download, better start downloading, partner
Previously we talked about the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be at or surpass 100GB on both the PS4 and Xbox One. Meaning that this game is going to take a very long time to download if you’re picking it up digitally.
Thankfully, Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive have announced when you’ll be able to pre-load the game. Starting on Oct. 18, both PS4 and Xbox One gamers will be able to start downloading the game.

So we highly recommend you get a start on that. The sooner the better, as you know full well that once the game is available, the download servers will be packed.
Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on Oct. 26, 2018, for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
