It’s the first time that we see an official (semi-official?) manner on a website directly related to Rockstar Games that they have Red Dead Redemption 2 mentioned on PC and in a direct way.
We have talked countless times about how Red Dead Redemption 2 is eventually going to show up on PC – the last time, we might have mentioned Strauss Zelnick’s (the CEO of Take-Two, the publisher of Rockstar) comment that they do not see any reason why they shouldn’t port the game if they wanted to. This port is probably secretly in development at this point, and we can be more and more confident about it.
A Twitter user revealed that on Rockstar Social Club’s website’s source code has a string called RDR2_PC. We have checked it ourselves, and we also found the string. You can see it for yourself if you click here and look for the string in the .js file. There should be one result for it. It means that Rockstar Games – for the first time, no less – is officially hinting at the Western adventures heading to the PC, which is still weird because the first game, which came out nine years ago on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (we’re not involving backwards compatibility on Xbox One and PlayStation Now streaming on PlayStation 4), is still not available on PC. (Unless it will also get ported, but we have our doubts.)
Red Dead Redemption 2 came out last autumn on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC port might come at the end of 2019, and if it ends up as an Epic Games Store exclusive game, Epic Games would get a killer app, as well as probably hundreds of thousands of angry gamers. There’s still an official hint for the PC port coming, though.
