Rumours of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 making its way to PC have been rampant for a while, but as the supposed-evidence stacks up, it’s looking evermore likely that the release will happen.

The latest ‘leak’ about a PC version of RDR2 has made its way to Reddit, where a user is claiming that though the game is coming, it won’t be headed to Steam.

Redditor DepressedWayOutWest3 writes: “Rockstar is a confirmed Stadia dev, with title(s) to be launched for Stadia’s November launch.

“How do we know they aren’t going to just release GTA V again? We don’t. But we got this teaser towards Red Dead Redemption back in March.

“R* insider and enthusiast TezFunz2 (twitter) posted on the GTAForums a short while ago, that a PC version and ‘enhanced editor’ are coming, with R* currently discussing when to release them. The current plan is Holiday 2019 (October-December 2019)

“With a November release for Stadia, R* could choose to put the game onto PC earlier this October, or at the same time as Stadia.

“The kicker is, RDR2 will not be on Steam, but an exclusive to the EGS and R* Social Club.

In the comments of the post, the user went on to add: “I have never been more certain an announcement is coming, based on all the things stated in my post, AND the fact the casino and soundtrack is out the way.”

Although we’re yet to see anything solid in the claims, especially that last one, is does seem likely that PC players will be able to play the game sooner rather than later.

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’”

Got your pinch of salt at the ready? Great! Because until we hear from Rockstar Games, this is just another RDR2/PC rumour…
