Red Dead Redemption 2 releases tomorrow on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The pre-load of the game started a week ago. If you have downloaded the game already, then you are in safe zone. Most players who started downloading the game yesterday are facing the slow speed issues on PSN.
It is just not you alone experiencing slow downloading issues for Red Dead Redemption 2. Since yesterday, many users started reporting slow download issues. North America PSN users are the most affected by slow download speed issue.
This clearly pinpoints at the huge amount of players who are downloading the game from the servers. Plus, the game is almost 92GB, which adds more trouble. Also, the game is releasing on Friday and that we have a weekend ahead to play it, hence a great deal of traffic on servers.
Regardless of how good internet connection you have, if you are experiencing the slow download issue only on Red Dead Redemption 2, it is highly likely to remain till the game releases. Only then, the most traffic will lift off from the servers.
The slow download issue so far have been reported by PSN users. We do not know if Xbox One users also face the same problem or not. However, our good guess is that it is only on PSN.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has a 30-days early access to four in-game items. Plus, most of the players have friends to play with on PlayStation 4. This analysis sums up that the game has sold more on PSN than Xbox One. Or it could be other wise, because we know one thing for sure that Xbox One store has a good track record of keeping its services well for users.
