Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Listing Just a Placeholder

Rockstar Games Work Hours

Red Dead Redemption 2 rumored PC version surfaces once again

Two years after it was first announced, Red Dead Redemption 2 is poised to launch next week.

The listing is likely just a shell placeholder, and has been updated to disallow pre-orders (the original let users pre-order the PC version) and any mention of a placeholder 2019 release has been scrubbed.

Responding to a query from WCCFTech, Mediamarkt put the fire on the hopes for a PC version - though that doesn't mean that it'll never happen.

A European retailer has published a listing for the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2, giving an air of legitimacy to rumors that claim Rockstar is working on it behind the scenes.

So yeah, it appears that MediaMarkt had no inside information about the PC listing.

Point is that we are back to square one again. Similar two disc data and play discs have been issued in this way before, and given the colossal size of Red Dead Redemption 2 (it's over 100GB), this makes sense.

So no, RDR 2 isn't coming to PC, at least not any time soon.

While it seems like somewhat of an unspoken trend for Rockstar games to be released on console first, numerous publisher's biggest titles have received PC releases, albeit sometime later.

The Nintendo Switch being portable could allow Rockstar to develop a newer up-to-date portable version of Grand Theft Auto for the Switch, and considering the success of previous GTA portable games this would, I feel, be a good move from Nintendo.
