Red Dead Redemption 2, the much anticipated sequel to the popular Old Western title, may finally be coming to PC.
Nothing has officially been confirmed by anyone currently at Rockstar Games in this regard but there has been some evidence online that has led fans to believe that the rumour may be true.
According to Gear Nuke, information from a LinkedIn page belonging to one of Rockstar’s former game developers has surfaced, with the profile belonging to an anonymous programmer from the company, who has previously worked on other popular Rockstar titles such as L.A Noire and Grand Theft Auto 5.
The Linkedin page lists PC as a platform option for the upcoming game alongside PS4 and Xbox One. The caveat here is that this was only listed momentarily and the information has since been removed.
There was no mention of a possible Red Dead Redemption 2 PC option at E3 this year and no comment has been made regarding this by any members of the studio as of yet.
The first Red Dead Redemption led fans to start petitioning on websites such as Change.org to get the game out on PC and there is even a new petition that has been started to get the sequel out on PC in light of this news. Rockstar isn’t unaware that there is a fan-base who want to see the game released on that platform.
The game itself is set to release in late October and it’s safe to say that fans of the franchise would be more than happy to see the game released on other platforms. It would definitely make the game a lot more accessible for people who might not own other consoles and would also be a very lucrative option for the studio.
It’s hard to say if there will be any more updates on this from the company themselves in the near future, but we’re crossing our fingers that we will get some soon.
