Will Red Dead Redemption II ever make it to PC?

Rockstar Games releases Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Rockstar Games will release Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 and Xbox One on October 26th, making now the perfect time to release a launch trailer for the title.  

While we typically cover PC games at OC3D, Rockstar has a habit of bringing their games over to PC after their console counterparts have been completed, with Grand Theft Auto 4, LA Noire, Bully: Scholarship Edition and Grand Theft Auto V acting as examples. That being said, none of the Red Dead series' previous entries have ever made it to the PC platform. 

Rockstar Games typically release with spectacular levels of graphical quality alongside memorable story modes, with the addition of online elements with GTA V's GTX Online mode propelling the series to glorious new heights, with GTA V remaining one of PC gaming's most popular games to this day. It would be foolish for Rockstar to keep the Red Dead Franchise away from the PC platform, especially this time given the hardware similarities of modern gaming PCs and consoles. 

    America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.  


Red Dead Redemption 2 will release on October 26th on PS4 and Xbox One, with the game offering an updated version of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), with the game acting as Rockstar's first exclusive title for modern console hardware/platforms.

Do you reckon they're holding back on announcing whether they'll have a PC version in the hopes of selling the game twice—once to early adopters with consoles who can't wait, and second to early adopters who can't wait but also have a PC and prefer it?Quote

10 studios worked on this game for the past 8 years and it must have cost a fortune to develop. I could bet anything that they already have a PC version in the works. Remember what they said about GTA V back in the day? It was something along the lines of "we were always going to make a PC version". And GTA V sold more than 12 million copies on Steam alone. God only knows how many physical copies were sold. And then there's GTA Online. You don't say no to that kind of money.Quote

Probably correct. They did just that with GTA5 and Max Payne 3.Quote

Max Payne 3 was awesome. Max Payne has always been in my top five favourite video games ever, but when Rockstar took it over and kept delaying it (it was supposed to be come out in 2009), I thought it was going to be a disaster. Turns out it looked gorgeous, ran well, and had a really unique spin on the character. Terrific game that I've had installed for four years now I bet. Ended the series well.Quote

I must play through MP3 again tbh. Spectacular game. Loved the bit in the "chop shop". Really creeped me out I wasn't expecting that. Also liked how the dynamics changed and only headshots work. Really made me hone my aiming skills.Quote
