Rockstar Games is already actively bringing Red Dead Redemption 2 over to PC according to the LinkedIn profile of a Rockstar Leeds employee.
The programmer in question was discovered by VG247, although they’ve decided to keep them nameless in order to (attempt to) prevent any blowback. The employee has worked at Rockstar Leeds for seven years and six months, joining in June 2009. They’ve worked on Beaterator for iPhone, L.A. Noire, Grand Theft Auto V, and, more recently, Red Dead Redemption 2.
Where things get more interesting is the platforms list for Red Dead Redemption 2 though. The programmer claims they worked on the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of Red Dead Redemption 2. Here’s the screenshot from VG247 so make of it what you will.
Up until this point, Rockstar hasn’t uttered so much as a whisper about a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s been announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One so far, that was pretty much a given, but there have been fears that, like the original, RDR2 could skip PC altogether.
This LinkedIn profile clearly doesn’t constitute proof that Red Dead Redemption II is coming to PC, but it’s certainly the biggest clue we’ve had yet. If we look at the success that Rockstar enjoyed with GTA V on PC then it seems ludicrous to assume they wouldn’t do the same trick with Red Dead Redemption 2. In all likelihood, a PC version of RDR2 is actively in development at Rockstar, although we have a wait on our hands until it eventually arrives on PC. Following GTA V’s release cadence, we would expect to see RDR2 in Spring 2020, although we’re still hopeful of a 2019 launch.
