Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC found in Social Club Source Code

New evidence from the source code of the Rockstar Games Social Club suggests Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is in the works.

Rockstar could be making an announcement that many Red Dead Redemption 2 players have been waiting for. Source code found in the Social Club website may indicate Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is actually happening. I mean, who didn’t believe it would eventually happen? Still, nice to get more circumstantial evidence to add to the pile.

Social Club Source Code – Read Dead Redemption 2 on PC

Over the holiday weekend, a Twitter user by the name JakoMako51 found a very interesting piece of information on Rockstar’s Social Club. The information was located in the site’s source code and reads as follows: “RDR2_PC_Accomplishments”, which is promptly followed by PlayStation 4 trophies. While this doesn’t confirm that Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t coming to PC at this time, the newly found evidence is making a buzz around the gaming community. Rockstar has been known to release games on consoles first and later on PC. As noted by a PC Gamer article, the “PC” could related to “player character” in some cases, but the fact that PlayStation 4 trophies are mentioned immediately after hints that we might be looking at a a reference to PC achievements.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was released in October 2018 and with a one year anniversary coming up, Rockstar could be inching closer to a release date for PC in the near future. Missing an opportunity to bring one of the most popular games in recent to PC is something I can’t see happening. It’s also worth noting that the timing could line up closely with how soon Grand Theft Auto V was released on PC after the initial console launch.

While Rockstar has made no announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC at this time, I hope an announcement will be made soon. As stunning as the game is on console, nothing will compare to the graphics and performance of a high-end gaming PC running Red Dead Redemption 2.
