We've long hoped (and suspected) that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to PC, despite the failure of the original due to technical problems, but now there's even more reason to be hopeful thanks to a discovery made by Rockstar Intel within the games' companion app for iOS and Andorid.
The app contains parameters within it's config files, the key ones of interest to us being;
- CommandIsPcVersion(void) 000000000166A12C
Of course, the first and last commands suggest a PC version outright, while an Oculus flag not only suggests a PC version, but Oculus Rift support.
This could of course simply mean there will be a PC version of the companion app, rather than a full PC release, but this seems unlikely to us, given it's unlikely you'll want to use a companion app on a PC to a console only game, and the Oculus reference only further re-inforces the idea of this pointing to a full PC release.
Of course this isn't a confirmation of the game coming to PC, and Rockstar could simply be covering all bases, or this may be something else entirely, but it's another hint towards the idea that a PC version may come..... one day.
In the mean time this author has once again been forced into buying a PlayStation due to his impatience, so, thanks for that, Rockstar.
Stay tuned to GameFront for any more news on the PC release of Red Dead as it happens.
