Red Dead Redemption May Yet Be Headed To PC According To Microsoft Listing

I guess it’s a case of better late than never, but an an eagle-eyed sleuth over on the NeoGAF forums noticed that Microsoft’s Compatibility Center now contains a listing for Red Dead Redemption.

Reportedly compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, and 7, the Western-themed Red Dead Redemption is considered by many to be Rockstar’s magnum opus…

NeoGAF users Lazaro was responsible for the findings, finding the recent addition to Microsoft’s Windows Compatibility database that is maintained and checked frequently by Microsoft.

Many PC gamers had understandably given up hope of ever seeing Red Dead Redemption make its way off consoles, nearly four years after its original release. Pitching the player as former outlaw John Marston, Red Dead Redemption is an epic tale of jail breaks, shootouts, train robberies, lassoing and horse-riding, set against the stunning backdrop of the West and Mexico.

If this rumour is true then it could be a big boon for PC gaming, and lends credence to the rumours that a PC remaster of Grand Theft Auto 5 is in the works.

Would you welcome a port of Red Dead Redemption on PC?

Or has Rockstar taken too long for it to have any relevance?

Let us know!

Just release it for PC. It is a very extraordinary game. I hope this is true, not like GTA V where there clues everywhere but no official details :P

he means that he doesnt want red dead redemption to come to pc so that we the "scumbag pc master race elitists" acknoledge that consoles are good. yes dead blue2821 we know consoles are good. its just that many of us think that pc is (quite) better. the games themselves dont make a platform better.

This had better not be some cruel joke. If RDR does come to PC I will be the first to buy it. How could I not pre-order a PC copy of Rockstars best game ever :D

well yes I think Rockstar will do this to silence the angry gamers about the GTA...but I too think that GTA will become console exclusive about the same time when Read dead comes to pc....so yeah I believe that a switch will happen.

As long as GTAV? This has taken quite long already, since it was released about 4 years ago. GTAV only about 8 months.

I got lost in your reply.
GTA V wasn't released 4 years ago lol, only 8 months. GTA IV took about 8 months, but it was a much smaller game, and it was a poorly optimized one. They won't repeat the same mistake again.
