Dagnabbit—No PC port of Red Dead Redemption

Posted on October 6, 2011 AT 01:42pm

THE BUZZ: In a Q&A posted over on the Rockstar Games website, a bit of bad news hit for PC owners craving some Old West-style action.

When asked if there were plans for a PC version of Red Dead Redemption, or if Rockstar had “abandoned the PC platform???” (indeed including not one but three question marks), here was Rockstar’s reply:

We hope that with the announcement that L.A. Noire is coming to PC this fall, and the knowledge that our next big game Max Payne 3 will have a PC release (plus that we’ve released both Grand Theft Auto IV and the Episodes from Liberty City for PC), we can finally put to rest any misconceptions that we’ve ‘abandoned the PC platform’. We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans – that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course we’re well aware that some fans have been asking for it. All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform) – we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms. To PC gamers, we hope that between the Grand Theft Auto titles, and the forthcoming L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3, you’ll have plenty of great Rockstar action to enjoy.


EGM’s TAKE: It’s a shame that PC gamers won’t be able to enjoy Rockstar’s tribute to Westerns without going for a console version, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes I suppose.
