Rockstar Games’ open-world western Red Dead Redemption 2 released to critical acclaim last year, but so far the title has only been available on PS4 and Xbox One leading us to wonder: will we ever see Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC?
The Code Leaks
A PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 is already something Rockstar’s Social Club website recognises, despite not having been officially announced. Twitter user @JakoMako51 spotted references to the PC version in site source code.
It may be a single line of code but, paired with previous PC rumors, it suggests that Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC could be on the way. After all, it took Rockstar Games just under a year to port GTA 5 to PC after the game’s release so to estimate that it’ll take Red Dead 2 roughly the same amount of time (if not a tad longer) isn’t out of the question.
Adding to this evidence is the previous mentions of PC in RDR’s code in last year’s data mine, which included references to PC graphic settings, including grass rendering and shadow quality. There are also lines that mentions ‘PC,’ such as ‘CommandIsPcVersion(void)’ and ‘PARAM_companionAutoConnectIpPC.’
All signs point to Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC eventually, but whether its sooner rather than later remains to be seen.
