Don’t expect Red Dead Redemption on PC anytime soon
Bad news for those of you hoping Rockstar would be bringing their epic western-themed sandboxer Red Dead Redemption to the PC – it doesn’t look like it will be happening anytime soon. Rockstar recently answered a bunch of user-asked questions on their blog, and when asked whether they had any plans to release Red Dead Redemption on PC, their answer was a disappointing ‘when it’s viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) it’ll happen.
The full answer from Rockstar’s Blog:
We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans – that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course we’re well aware that some fans have been asking for it. All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform) – we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms. To PC gamers, we hope that between the Grand Theft Auto titles, and the forthcoming L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3, you’ll have plenty of great Rockstar action to enjoy.
Given that Red Dead Redemption is ranked among the best games of all time, and is one of my personal favourites, it’s a shame there’s no definitive plans to release the game on the PC. Here’s hoping that in the future, such a release becomes viable, as it would be a great disappointment for PC users not to be able to experience Rockstar’s western-themed epic.
