Rumour - Red Dead Redemption 2 to be revealed as a Epic Games Store Exclusive on PC

Rockstar Toronto Programmer Lists Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC version on LinkedIn

Red Dead Redemption 2 was easily the biggest single player game release of 2018, launching on PS4 and Xbox One to critical acclaim. Since before launch, Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 has been rumoured to have a PC version in the works, opening the title to another platform and a significant increase in sales volume. 

Now, it has been discovered that a former Rockstar Toronto Physics Programmer called Nan Ma has listed Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) on his LinkedIn profile, hinting that a PC release of the game was planned long before the game’s launch. This reference has since been removed from his LinkedIn profile, likely due to the news stories which now surround the profile. 

As of yet, 2K Games and Rockstar have not revealed Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC, though given the hardware similarities of gaming PCs, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a PC conversion of the title wouldn’t be a difficult feat for the studio, especially given the developer’s stellar work on Grand Theft Auto V for the platform.

Given the popularity of Red Dead Redemption 2 on consoles, it is hard to see a PC release of the title being anything less than a resounding success, providing gamers with a well-told story while also offering the possibility of 60 FPS gameplay. 

It would be foolish for Rockstar to skip PC with Red Dead Redemption 2, as the studio would be leaving a lot of money on the table by doing so. 

You can join the discussion on Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC version appearing on a former Rockstar Dev’s LinkedIn on the OC3D Forums.
