Red Dead Redemption


 

Speaking during a recent earnings call, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick stated that the PC platform is “very, very important.”

Currently, Red Dead Redemption 2 has only been confirmed for console, but this statement suggests that PC owners won’t be waiting forever for the game.

“I would observe that the PC platform has become a very, very important part of what we do driven by digital distribution,” he said during the call (via Seeking Alpha). “And that was not the case for so called console titles 10 years ago. And it is the case now. Does that mean that the business is flattening out and everything become open and we don’t care what brand is on the box not the least, I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of more generations. However, it does get us closer to a point where we truly can be platform agnostic as an industry.”

Developer Rockstar’s previous game Grand Theft Auto V didn’t come to PC until six months after its current-gen console release. Hopefully PC owners won’t have to wait quite as long this time.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches October 26th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
