Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Rumors Refueled by Another Programmer’s Resume on LinkedIn
It has been a while since we've posted a new Red Dead Redemption 2 PC rumor. The last time, someone had discovered several parameters, strings and functions in the Red Dead Redemption 2 mobile companion app that hinted to a PC version in a pretty clear way.
A few months earlier, though, we also reported on a Rockstar Leeds programmer's LinkedIn profile which mentioned Red Dead Redemption 2 PC alongside the released versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Of course, it could have been a mistake made by the programmer, in theory at least.
However, another resume from a Rockstar Toronto programmer was recently uncovered to bear the same information. If we go by the rules of Agatha Christie, we may be just one hint short of finding proof of this port.
On a more serious note, there are good reasons to believe an announcement is eventually coming. The Swedish MediaMarkt listed it as a placeholder some time ago but also said they expected an announcement sooner or later, while veteran games industry analyst Michael Pachter reckoned the same back in late 2016. That would be logical if following the pattern Rockstar had with Grand Theft Auto, though then again the first Red Dead Redemption never made it to PC.
It's possible Rockstar may be waiting for Red Dead Online to come out of beta. The multiplayer portion of the game is getting constant updates and it may not be long before the 1.0 version is out.
Having sold over 23 million copies as of three months ago, Red Dead Redemption 2 garnered universal critical and commercial acclaim. Here's what we thought when we reviewed it.
Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be perfect, but its minor shortcomings are like tiny blemishes on a stunningly beautiful face. In a way, they only serve as a reminder of how this world isn't made for perfection. Every single aspect of the game will put you into the very shoes of an outlaw roaming America with his gang as they try to escape the law long enough to make the money needed to disappear for good. It's an epic, memorable and engrossing tale which also elevates the open world genre to new heights with the brand new interaction system, a cast of unforgettable characters and a ton of high-quality content to play for a long time.
