Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Companion App, which is available on iOS and Android, already has some hints that the game is in development for PC.
We have written countless times about how Red Dead Redemption 2 is possibly heading to the PC. The last time we did was when Rockstar Games‘ Social Club website’s source code had a reference to it. Now, a user with the handle rollschuh2282 on GTAforums revealed that perhaps Take-Two and Rockstar should stop pulling our nerves at this point.
The app has multiple references to a potential PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. Graphics, Display, System, Audio are just a few things that are mentioned, and there’s DirectX Feature Set 12_1 as well, which is a direct mention of Microsoft’s technology on PC (unless it is a next-gen hint…?). Also, it seems like the PC port of Red Dead Redemption 2 might also come with an Ultra graphical preset, which wasn’t in Grand Theft Auto V’s port when it came out over four years ago.
So now all Rockstar and Take-Two should do is just announce Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, which would still be weird, as the first game from 2010 never appeared on this platform, and since then, no word came about it getting ported. Perhaps it’s time for that as well, but then, there’s the question when the game would launch, and which digital store would receive it at that time. After Borderlands 3, which is published by Take-Two via 2K, it wouldn’t be surprising if there would be a potential 12-month Epic Games Store exclusivity as some sort of a killer app, which would be followed another dip of money on Steam. (We’d even bet money on Rockstar Games and Take-Two following this scenario.)
