Red Dead Redemption 2, probably 2018’s most anticipated game, might be coming to PC after all.
MediaMarkt, one of Europe’s largest retailers, had the game’s PC version listed for a 2019 release for a very brief moment.
Dutch site TechTastic first noticed the listing a few days ago and managed to grab a screenshot. The listing is now offline, of course, since Red Dead Redemption 2 was never officially announced for PC.
There are a few things to consider before we decide if this is a legit leak or just a mistake by MediaMarkt.
It is possible the retailer knows something we don’t, but it’s also possible they are merely preparing for an event should Rockstar announce RDR 2 is coming to PC. However, I choose to remain optimistic.
First, the release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is listed as December 31, 2019. This is most likely a placeholder indicating the game will be released sometime in 2019 (if at all).
Second, Rockstar did eventually release GTA 5 on PC, mostly to take advantage of the big multiplayer community with GTA Online. Red Dead Redemption 2 will also have a multiplayer mode called Red Dead Online, so a PC version is a very real possibility.
There are also other clues we picked up over the game’s development, like this Rockstar Games programmer’s LinkedIn resume that lists Red Dead Redemption 2 as a PC game.
The evidence is all pointing to the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC in the future. Why not 2019?
I guess we’ll know for sure only after Red Dead Redemption comes out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26. If you’re still not sure why you should care, maybe this impressive gameplay video will change your mind.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
