Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally here, but only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While a PC edition of the game is rumoured, Rockstar has yet to make any announcements. In the latest episode of GameSpot's PC-focused show, Steam Punks, Jess McDonell and Edmond Tran discuss the situation surrounding Red Dead Redemption 2 and its lack of PC support.
In the episode, Jess and Edmond start off by talking about the numerous factors at play that may be keeping Red Dead Redemption 2 off PC. These include business interests and the pursuit of console exclusives, as well as potential technical considerations.
Also in the video, Jess talks about how Microsoft is making strides recently to support PC gaming in a bigger way by bringing more of its big-name franchises to the platform through the Xbox Play Anywhere program.
While the 2010 original Red Dead Redemption never came to PC, there is some hope for Red Dead Redemption 2 extending to the platform if recent history is any indication. Rockstar's previous release, Grand Theft Auto V, eventually came to PC in April 2015. That was five months after the PS4 and Xbox One release in November 2014, and 18 months after the game originally launched for PS3 and Xbox back in September 2013.
Jess and Ed also talk about some of the games they hope will arrive on PC someday. Check out the video to see and hear about all of these games.
