Whoa there cowbody, you’re gonna have to wait, as Rockstar Games today pushed the release date of the hotly-hyped Red Dead: Redemption back a month to May 18.

Take-Two, the game’s publisher, CEO Ben Feder explained the reasoning behind the delay of game in a financial call today.

“We shifted the launch of the game by several weeks into the third quarter. We believe this is the optimal time frame to release what is being hailed as the next generation of sandbox games.”

Well, RDR was number one (outside of Halo: Reach) for 2010, and yeah, it still is, just a month later. Delay of games, they hurt, huh?
