According to Gamespot. Zelnick spoke that the reason behind the delay was to ensure a polish product.

“The entire focus of this organization is on delivering the highest quality entertainment experiences of any kind. More often than not, we feel proud that we’re able to do that. All of our labels are focused on releasing a title when they reach that apex of effort and perfection. And in this instance, Rockstar Games felt more polish was required, and naturally we are in favour of that decision [to delay Red Dead Redemption 2]. The date of October 26 is set, and I am confident that will be the release date. We are incredibly excited about it.”

Zelnick spoke about how the new release window, while more competitive, allows for better results.

“[Rockstar] release[s] titles all over the calendar. Heading into the holiday season can be a particularly powerful time and I’d observe that while there are some competitive releases, it’s a lot more of an open field today then it was 10 years ago. There’s plenty of opportunity to go around So we’re really excited about [Red Dead Redemption 2] and the timing related to the launch.”

Zelnick went on to explain that "quality comes first" and considering Rockstars' past releases it safe to assume so. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games previous large release, still have a strong community following with new content updates constantly being introduced since its release in 2013.

Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on October 26th for Xbox One and PS4.
