Rockstar Social Club Source Code Points to Red Dead 2 PC Release

We are pretty confident that Rockstar are releasing Red Dead Redemption 2 onto PC. RDR2 was the biggest and best game to release last year and arguably one of the best games of all time. Todays hint to help give us some more hope around a PC release comes from a person called JakoMako51, who reported spotting a snippet of Red Dead 2 PC related data in the Rockstar Social club source code.

Wherein there is a tiny reference “RDR2_PC_Accomplishments” that can only be pointing to the preparations Rockstar must be making to get their systems ready for the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.

The context in which this little data point is found certainly seems to be referring to its achievements and platform and is found in the section of code that is talks about the PS4 trophies for example. 

You can take a look at the code yourself although we have a feeling it may have been removed by Rockstar by the time you read this. Just pop over to the Social Club and in Chrome press F12 and then select Sources to be shown the page code. Or follow this link to check out the code to search yourself for “RDR2_PC_Accomplishments”.

Adding this into the gathering clues and hints trail, it is certainly steadily growing in certainty around a PC release.

Either way, we will take that as a nice little positive for PC gamers. Let us know in the poll below if you think PC gamers will get to play Red Dead 2 or if we are all just being overly hopeful, after all the original never came to PC.

Will we see a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Release?

Our favourite comments:

It will be released with the next gen consoles, or shortly afterwards. It depends how R* manages to get players to double dip on consoles first (as per their tactics) because it's confirmed they will be backwards compatible. Maybe Red Read Redemption 2: Redux? Who knows

After releasing RDR2 on PC they need to go back and release the first one on PC as well.

Its gonna come late 2020 or early 2021 because Rockstar is smart enough to avoid Cyberpunk.

I'm hoping they release RDR1 and RDR2, maybe with the option to bundle them, or just altogether, somehow.

They'll most likely wait till next-gen consoles are out - milk those a bit with MTX and than release it on PC.

Obviously, they have to milk out those MTX on PC as well and release on new gen and stop updating the old gen.

Didn't get GTA V at all and we and my friends will do the same with RDR 2 (despite most of us owning PS4) - it's kind of boycott from our side.I don't care of the problems RS had with the engine-and-all-that and NOT putting RDR 1 on PC.GTA V made'em billions and they still treat PC gamers like secondhands,washed up,not-wort-your-time people.

Hopefully they will optimize the game at least on the level of gta v

Gta V wasn't that well optimized as everyone says. For example my GPU is never between 90-100% usage at 1366x768 at max settings(it's always between 65-85%). CPU is always around 60-80% range. So yeah.

It's coming out with the new consoles. I think that was fairly obvious given how they dealt with GTA V and how many times they've sold that game. They're not going to pass up on PC now that GTAV earned them millions on the platform, possibly even billions.

Nice, and all that, but the focus on stupid multiplayer will once again ensure that there won't be more single-player content...

Rockstar exists under Take Two, and Take Twos notorious CEO Mr. Zelnick thinks that GTAV, the most profitable entertainment product in history, ever, movies, games music, everything, is undermonetized. Because of that I have absolutely zero desire to ever play RDR2 or any of Rockstars games again, and it's a shame because Rockstar can clearly make a really good game.

I'll buy RDR2, but, just like with GTA V - I won't be spending ANY time online. I think the single player element alone is worth the price of admission, but nothing else past that is, in my opinion.
By the way, come over and have a read and have your say on THIS TOPIC. We are discussing such practices. :)

What's your experience with it performance-wise? RPCS3?
I wonder if the game would be fully playable on my rig or if the compatibility isn't there yet.
Your reply would be appreciated :)

Performance wise, it's still not there. My rig struggled to keep steady 10 fps :D . The emulator still needs some development time.

I'll be completely honest, was very tempted to get a PS4 RDR2 bundle, but from a financial and business stand point it makes ZERO sense for them not to bring it to PC.
