Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Hint?

DSOGaming reports that Nan Ma's LinkedIn profile contained a reference to a PC edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 from his time as a physics programmer at Rockstar Games Toronto. They have an image showing "Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4, XB1, PC)" under the heading "titles worked on." They express their opinion that a PC version of the western shooter is a certainty, though it seems plausible the platform listings were just a copy/paste error from his mention of Grand Theft Auto V. On the other hand, it seems intriguing that this mention of RDR2 now seems to be removed altogether, rather than just edited.

So no RDR1 on PC? Is there a continuation of a story in RDR2? Or is it completely new for the sequel?

You can play it on PC via playstation now. I think there might be a free trial for it too.

Yeah, that's a streaming service, so only if you live in a major market.

RDR2 is a prequel, actually. There's definitely some tie-in, but I think it stands on it's own to a certain extent.

Haven't you heard? Star Citizen is already released. The Lord and Commander Chris Roberts has deemed the current version to offer "way more gameplay and content than any AAA title."

Anything they make now is just out of the kindness of Chris Roberts' magnificent heart.

As for RDR2 on the PC, whatever. Fuck you and your secretive bullshit, Rockstar.

Wait, he actually said that?

Anybody here play both Red Dead and Activision's Gun? I'm not a fan of the western genre so I've never understood why Red Dead is so well-regarded and Gun was basically forgotten. What's the difference in how the games play?

I only vaguely remember Gun but remember RDR well. RDR was much superior graphics wise and it was a much, much larger open world. GTA in the wild west as it were.

Let’s hope so. I gave up on the ps4 version because I suck with the controller in a game like that. So frustrating! I just don’t want to buy it twice at full price.

Thankfully Take-Two Interactive makes the decisions not rockstar and they don't do consoles only, afaik.

After the cash cow on PC that is GTA no way Rockstar is going to make the mistake of passing up that sort of money again. Oh, it's coming alright.

Big question is whether is going to be an exclusive to certain stores for a year.

Not even Epic has that much cash.

Not a snowball's chance in Hell! Unless Epic is willing to pony up a billion bucks or so. Rockstar stands to make the most money by selling it everywhere. A couple points on the cut isn't going to phase them.

I assume to maximize profits from people with both a console and a PC. Same thing happened with GTA 5, and probably GTA 4, if I remember correctly. I know I personally got two different copies (but never again!).

Plus, they probably really don't want people modding in free money for other people online. But the grind is/was so bad that it was basically mandatory to enjoy the online portion IMO. And their Shark Card prices were absolutely stupid. They've turned completely money-hungry.
