YeeHaw: Information on Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC found in Social Club’s source code

Rumours have been circling for ages that Red Dead Redemption 2 would eventually be making its way to PC and a new discovery adds more fuel to the flame

I feel like RDR2 coming to PC is kind of only half a rumour? Largely because we all know it’s gonna happen, Rockstar would be fools not to port it over. The question now is more focused on when we can expect the long-awaited PC release of Rootin’ Tootin’ Cowboy Shootin’ Game and while we still don’t really have a solid answer for that, it seems the PC release is inching ever closer. At least, that’s what can be assumed from the source code of Rockstar’s weird launcher but not really a launcher Social Club. Seriously, how many people actually use it?

Discovered by JakoMako 51 and posted to Twitter, mentions of RDR2 on PC have been seen within Social Club’s source code. The text reads, “RDR2_PC_Accomplishments”, which as pointed out by Gamespot could also mean “Playable Character”. However given the context of other lines around this one such as “RDR2_PS4_Trophies” it seems far more likely to correspond to Personal Computer rather than anything to do with Arthur Morgan and his wonderful hat. Look, as I said, I feel like everyone kinda knows that RDR2 will be coming to PC, this new bit of evidence is just a way to further confirm that despite offering nothing in ways of a release date.

I know many people who’ve been waiting for the PC port of RDR2 and I for one couldn’t give a hoot. Whilst featuring some stellar plot and character writing the actual gameplay is sorely dated and unoptimised in its design leading to a slow-paced, plodding and unintuitive that seems to drag on far longer than it should. That being said, I think it is an important game that everyone should play at least once, so I’m excited about the possibility to finally discuss my mixed feelings with friends who only own PCs.

    At 40% game completion and yes, it does get frustratingly slow at times…

    Life is too short to play a game you gotta slog through.

    This game only opened up and became fun after the epilogue. Not to dismiss the great story and genuinely interesting characters and side quests, but so much of this game was just ass to get through.

    I’ll wait a few months for the modders to hopefully fix all the shitty mechanics like the travel time and the “wanted” level going to nuclear as soon as you mistakenly draw your gun in town. Played about 10% of the game on console and these mechanics along with the shitty hunting and skinning mechanics have kept me away.

    I could never call myself a gamer if I did not play a Rockstar game!
