Red Dead Redemption 2 app suggests PC version coming

Please wait...

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;

  • PARAM_companionAutoConnectIpPC
  • PARAM_Oculus
  • 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.

If it does get a PC release, will Rockstar allow us to mod it?

(By that, I refer to when Rockstar issued that Cease and Desist to OpenIV.)
