Perhaps it’s high time for Rockstar Games and Take-Two to finally say that yes, Red Dead Redemption 2 is indeed heading towards the PC (possibly due to the money bags they can grab via Red Dead Online)…
„Howdy GTA Forums Community. The long-awaited PC version for Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming in the future, I have datamined Red Dead Redemption 2’s files and came across a file that holds PC presets and settings. For those who will doubt this leak, well there are monitor settings too (also attached to this post).
Have a look at the code found in the files. There is more code but most of it is grass quality, shader settings, particle settings, motion blur, etc. DirectX 12 support is coming to the PC port, the PC version will have DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 support. Fun 2’s post a month ago also suggested DirectX 12 support in the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app code so yes it’s coming,” VideoTech UK wrote on the GTAForums.
There might be a one-year console exclusivity, meaning that after the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, the PC could get Red Dead Redemption 2 in late October – and then, we have yet to see if there will be any exclusivity towards Steam or the Epic Games Store. The DirectX 11 support means that Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 users would also be capable of playing the game with the Western adventures, so they wouldn’t be forcing the older OSes’ users to upgrade to Windows 10.
So let’s hope that Rockstar and Take-Two won’t play around for much longer. (If they keep this thing up, I hope you are having fun. We surely do not.)
