Red Dead Redemption


 

There may yet be a PC release for Red Dead Redemption 2, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter.

The original announcement for Red Dead Redemption 2 declared that the game is only arriving on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (the original Red Dead Redemption never made it onto PC, after all). Pachter, however, thinks that Rockstar may choose to use the Grand Theft Auto V model for its new game and make a PC release later.

“The key words here are right now,” Pachter told Gaming Bolt. “I remember the announcement for GTA V was Xbox 360 and PS3 only when it was first announced in November 2011, I think. And then they waited until June of 2014, so literally two and a half years after the first announcement, and announced that it would be on Xbox One and PS4. And then, I forget the month, but I think it was several months later, they announced it for PC, which came out in 2015.

“So they have a history of bleeding out information about their games, and credit to them, it works. It keeps fans interested in their games.”

At the moment, Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled for an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release in late 2017. If Pachter’s right, we might be seeing a PC release sometime in the year or so following.
