Red Dead Redemption 2 may be coming to PC, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter.
According to Pachter (via Gaming Bolt), Rockstar may follow a pattern similar to Grand Theft Auto V’s release, and release Red Dead Redemption for PC at a later date after the console versions.
“The key words here are right now,” Pachter stated. “I remember the announcement for GTA5 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.”
After some time of speculation and teasing, Rockstar had finally revealed Red Dead Redemption 2 with a trailer last week. Running just a bit over a minute, the trailer gives players a glimpse at Rockstar’s updated vision of the American West. However, the trailer ends with a burning settlement and the seven cowboys that were in the teaser image that was released before the trailer.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will release in late 2017 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
