The big question of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is surely a matter of if, not when, but Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick still won’t be drawn into confirming it’s happening.
UPDATE: Take-Two has announced Red Dead Redemption 2 sold-in 17 million copies worldwide during its first eight days on sale. This already puts Red Dead 2 in the top 40 bestselling games of all time, a feat achieved in a matter of days. Red Dead Redemption 2 has now sold more copies than the original Red Dead Redemption. RDR2 has done in eight days what it took RDR eight years to achieve.
This week a sensational story broke concerning tech and gaming website Trusted Reviews. Having leaked what turned out to be pretty much spot-on info about Red Dead Redemption 2 all the way back in February of this year, Trusted Reviews were approached by Take-Two’s legal heavyweights and reached a £1 million settlement.
British video game and tech website ‘Trusted Reviews’ has paid out a £1 million donation to various charities and apologised to Rockstar for a massive Red Dead Redemption 2 leak earlier this year. The leak detailed missions, mechanics, story details, and online multiplayer modes.
In further evidence that Red Dead Redemption 2 is eventually coming to PC, the official Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App makes several references to a PC version of Rockstar’s open-world Western.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-RPG set in one of the most complex and believable open-worlds ever seen. Rockstar has built a deep set of systems and mechanics that governs how it all works. Wrapping your head around it all can a little confusing though, and even dozens of hours later you'll be sure to be stumbling on new things you didn't know were possible.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out this week on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sadly though, Rockstar has yet to even announced a PC version. Rest assured though, it'll be coming one day.
Not content with requiring a hefty 149GB of storage place to download and install on PlayStation 4, or coming on two discs if you’re buying it physically, Red Dead Redemption 2 is also set to get a major game update on launch day.
UPDATE - It's time to play the sad trombone. European retailer Media Markt has responded to the stories regarding its store listing for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. 
We’re now just days away from the biggest gaming event of 2018 - the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar’s Western epic will be one of the most expensive entertainment products ever created, telling a tale of revenge and the American outlaw way of life during the turn of the 20th century.
Rockstar co-founder and vice president Dan Houser has been courting controversy this week, opening up about the development of Red Dead Redemption 2 and revealing a few more tidbits of what’s in store.
