Take-Two aren’t confirming Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC just yet

1 min read

The original Red Dead Redemption is one of Rockstar’s finest games, but it’s also one of the few they’ve never officially brought to PC. Grand Theft Auto V took a long time to make the jump to the PC community, but it arrived with a host of settings and new features to compliment the powerful hardware running it. Nothing of the sort happened for Rockstar’s first western, and publisher Take-Two isn’t ready to say if the sequel is going to be any different.

Take-Two President Karl Slatoff discussed PC as a potential platform in more broad terms during an earnings call, identifying how certain styles of games seem to find more success on PC than console. Slatoff seemed to suggest that PC was an important platform for the publisher, but didn’t make any specific mention of what games they might want to port over.

“It really depends on the title. Some titles are actually heavily weighted to PC, for example, Civilization and XCOM, [but] some titles are less weighted to PC. The great news is that the PC market is vibrant for us. It’s a great market. It’s a big market. It’s a core market.”

When asked directly about Red Dead Redemption 2, Slatoff stated that any word of a PC release would come from Rockstar themselves and not Take-Two. That likely means we’re not going to hear about a potential PC version for some time, given that Rockstar specifically announced their sequel for PS4 and Xbox One. The game was recently delayed into 2018, so if a PC version is on the cards it’s likely we’ll only hear about those plans after then.

It would make sense for Rockstar to finally bring Red Dead Redemption to PC though, given the success they saw with Grand Theft Auto V and its release. It also gives them a good opportunity to finally port the original too, if they’re feeling super generous.

    “Grand Theft Auto V took a long time to make the jump to the PC community…” Same will probably apply to this title :/

      What other way can you convince to people to buy the same game twice or 3 times?

      Its a shit for us consumers man, real shitty. But great for them, they can resell the same game. for the exact same price 2 or 3 years later.

          While i agree with you. Gamers are screwed over more times than any other entertainment audience imo.

          So anything that screws over the consumer leaves a very bad taste in my mouth, regardless if its R* or EA 😛 its a shit move lmao 😀

    They’d be shooting themselves in the foot with a shotgun if they don’t release it on PC.
