Red Dead Redemption coming to PC?

Forgot RDR

Sure, GTA might let you steal cars and do yoga, but Red Dead Redemption saw you riding around, shooting birds from trains and killing Sasquatch. It was a pure joy to play, and now it seems that the game might finally be coming to PC.

Thanks to the good people of CVG, I can tell you that the Windows Compatibility Center, which lists tons of apps and devices so that you can see if it will work with your version of Windows, is now letting gamers check their compatibility for Read Dead Redemption. If you check out the partner’s submission page, it says that apps can only appear on the list by developer submission or Microsoft testing. So, if developers are testing Windows compatibility, it makes sense that it would show up on this list.

It’s been four years since Red Dead Redemption corralled us on console. It was a genius game, but has it been too long a wait for PC gamers? Could this maybe mean that Rockstar will release both Red Dead and GTA V on PC? I mean, as long as they’re looking at one PC port, why not go whole hog and release both of their highly sought-after games? Perhaps we’ll see a PC and new generation release for the awesomely degenerate sandboxes.

Would this be a game you’d still grab on PC? Did you feel horribly left out by your lack of spurs and wild horses? Or has that ship sailed and now you just long for the easy LA-inspired life of GTA V?

            I feel exactly the same. If Rockstar thinks we’ll buy the game now for full price (for a four year old game) they must be mad. I can wait for this to go down too.

    Hopefully we get a tech-update as well.

    RDR didn’t appeal to me at all. Really, cowboys and horses in the Old West? Poppycock! Then I gave it a go due to a friend’s insistence. To this day it’s one of the best games that I’ve ever played. It’s right up there with Mass Effect 2 and 3.

        It’s a shame though, because Rockstar games can run amazingly well on PC, Max Payne 3 for example. Stellar PC port.

    I can’t remember when I played a more immersive game with such atmosphere. The soundtrack was awesome too. I really miss playing RDR as well as my Playstation 3 I had it on. πŸ™

    Red Dead is my second favourite game of all time, I still play it and if there is an upscaled version coming to PC, I will buy it and love it like the little clone it is..

    I frigging went out and bought an eggsbocks just to play this game, but my mouse and keyboard wouldn’t work on it. When I got to the stage where I had to rope horses it needed just a little bit of accuracy and that’s where I gave up. I’m all thumbs with those controllers. RDR on PC, yes please.

    Probably not, I don’t really care for how Rockstar deals with the PC community anymore.

    The problem with Red Dead Redemption is the long load screens just to save and ect. And the only way to shot was auto aim and slow-mo aiming.

    So a PC version is what this game needs to make it the good game that it is. Plus the graphics.

    Have it for my PS3… probably one of the best games I’ve every played, and I’ve been gaming since the NES days. I’d nab this again for PC in a heartbeat, especially with the modding possibilities.

    I have to say it’s pretty fun robing banks, getting in a HUGE gun battles, and killing hookers, but the game thats always been in my mind is red dead, the graphics are stunning, the muliplayer has the right fealing, and not to me mention its in the wild west….

    I really hope they bring it to pc if they do I will be all over it!
