Red Dead Redemption 2 Likely to be Released for PS4 on Two Blu-ray Discs

If the recent reports turn to be true, the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 will become the first ever multi-disc title released for PS4, and possibly also for Xbox One.

The RDR 2’s case is much thicker than the standard one

In their recent post, GameStop published the promotional material for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2, encouraging players to pre-order the title as soon as possible. On the picture, which shows the game’s case also from its side, it is not hard to see that the RDR 2’s box appears to be much thicker compared to the typical PS4 case, clearly hinting that more than one disk could be found inside of it.

The biggest game ever released for PS4

According to another picture released few days ago, which features a back of the game’s case, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be the biggest in size title ever released for any PlayStation console. Its size is said to be 105 GB on the PS4, so it is rather unlikely that one disc will be enough to store such amount of data. When it comes to Blu-ray discs, they are available in two capacities, 25GB and 50GB, therefore more discs will be needed for the Red Dead Redemption 2. Although BDXL discs can be used to store files over 100GB in size, they are not supported by PS4 and PS4 Pro.

The release date of the game

The upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to be the biggest game ever released for consoles, so numerous fans cannot wait to have their first taste of it. The title will be officially released on October 26th of this year, becoming available not only for PS4, but also for Xbox One.
