Red Dead Redemption 2 is an absolute gem of a game, but unfortunately for PC gamers it’s only playable on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and has been since it launched late last year.
However, a reference to a PC version of RDR2 has been found on Rockstar Games’ website – and it’s pretty much the most solid evidence of a PC version that we’ve seen so far.
As spotted by Twitter user @JakoMako51, references to a PC version of the game have been seen in the Rockstar’s Social Club site source code.
“RDR2_PC_Accomplishments:’Accomplishments,” is the phrase found in the coding.
The tweet reads: “The fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC is now quite evident. #RDR2 #reddeadredemption2pc #RedDeadRedemption2 #rdr2pc #reddeadredemptionRDR2_PC_Accomplishments: ‘Accomplishments'”
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about the Rockstar game making the leap from console to PC.
Earlier this year a couple of ex-Rockstar Games employees may have done an oopsie on their LinkedIn accounts, by referencing their work on the supposed PC version of the game.
At the time, PCGamer reported that two ex-Rockstar staff members had mentioned the game on their LinkedIn profiles – one person who worked for Rockstar Leeds until 2016, and one person who worked for Rockstar Toronto until 2016.
A PC release for RDR2 is something fans have been clamouring for since the game was first announced, and Rockstar Games knows it.
Back in May, Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive, weighed in on whether or not it’s likely to happen during an investor briefing.
Take-Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnick spoke about the possibility of launching Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, saying: “There is no downside to releasing the game on PC.”
It looks like it’s just going to be a matter of time before PC gamers can get their hearts broken just like us console gamers.
