Either Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick is on a massive wind-up, or Red Dead Redemption 2 could at long last be coming to PC.
Speaking during an investor briefing among Take-Two’s money men this week, Zelnick was asked about whether a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 would be possible, and what this could mean for Take-Two’s bottom line.
"There is no downside to releasing the game on PC,” responded Zelnick, causing a million PC gamers to scream out in silent rage at why this hasn’t happened yet.
Zelnick even goes one step further, and says developing a PC version of RDR2 would be a “layup”. Now, this is an unfamiliar term for me being the basketball heathen that I am, but a layup is a close-range shot, and colloquially means “a relatively easy task”. Nice, well get on with it then, Take Two.
Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is happening eventually, surely, and it’s now just got to be a question of when.
Rockstar is a listed partner for the recently unveiled Google Stadia as well, although no Rockstar games have been announced for the service just yet. We have a sneaking suspicion that Google Stadia and/or PC versions of RDR2 can’t be too far off from being announced. Or, you know, they could just go and make our week by announcing it at the PC Gaming Show during E3 2019.
Why do you reckon it's taking so long for Red Dead 2 to come to PC? When do you think it will finally be announced? Let us know in the comments below!
