Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26 for PS4 and Xbox One, after two years from being announced. The pre-loading has already been started on Friday, 19 October, as it needs over 99GB free space to install.
Most Rockstar fans prefer PC as their favorite gaming platform and would have loved to see Red Dead Redemption 2 also on PC. However, with the release on Xbox One and PS4, such an announcement should have to wait. But that doesn’t mean that sometime in the future there won’t be a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.
As with all anticipated games, rumors appeared about a PC version, but there was no official statement about it. Nonetheless, the rumors started surfacing once again after a European retailer published a listing with Red Dead Redemption 2 coming in the PC version (photo below). The listing claims that sometime next year, RDR2 will come out on PC. It might sound weird, but come to think about the next year’s schedule with Grand Theft Auto V, it doesn’t sound off anymore, right?
MediaMarkt Listed a PC Version of Red Dead Redemption 2
The Dutch website TechTastic discovered the listing on MediaMarkt showing a PC version of RDR2. They took a screenshot before the listing got removed. The screenshot showed the release date of December 31, 2019 – but that’s what retailers usually use when the publisher doesn’t give an actual release date.
The previous time when we heard about Rockstar working on an RDR 2 PC version was in June when a Rockstar Leeds employee wrote on their LinkedIn profile that they were part of the team that assisted with Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. Until today, there was nothing than that LinkedIn profile suggesting that fact, which makes the MediaMarkt listing quite interesting.
What we surely know is that if Rockstar plans to make Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC, it will have to wait for a while. With GTA V being so popular on PC, getting RDR 2 to PC is a no-brainer.
