Tell that to the people that waited for RDR to release on PC :)

If *R one day decides to release RDR2 on PC I think it won't be faster than second half or end of 2021/22.

The furthest point would be 2020 and that's only if new consoles launch next year, which they won't if I had to guess, I'd say they'd be announced next year and released in 2020, leaving 2019 open for RDR2 pc.

So GTA VI is getting moved to a next gen only release? I hope so, it would mean less hardware limitations and shorter wait for the PC version.

I hope not.

When a PC exclusive gets released, then it's PC master race.

When a console exclusive is released then what?

And btw, I'm not a console peasant, I have a PC I primarily use for gaming, but still, I have a PS4 Pro just in case I'll need it.

The patterns and lack of PC announcement point to there being no PC release for RDR II. I won't say never, but highly unlikely. There are some obstacles to face in terms of controls translating to the keyboard, among other challenges. I'd be open to playing it on the PC though.

There's zero obstacles other than optimising for PC hardware. The controls translate to mouse and keyboard perfectly fine.

 

It'll happen, 100%. They want that double dip.

I'm disheartened by the latest rumor it's not coming to PC and frankly I find it annoying Rockstar won't confirm either way. I don't know of any other developer that does this.

Absolutely. Just not for a while. How else can they get people to buy the game twice? They'll make us wait a year.

 

RDR1 was never ported to PC because doing so from PS3/X360 was a monumental undertaking due to the differences in their architectures. Those differences do not exist between PC and PS4/XB1.

Which is likely already being done for years too, it would be smart of them to develop on PC (x64) and downscale it to the consoles instead (also x64 architectures).

Relax, it was a translation error, the game is definitely coming to PC.

Perhaps, but not officially.

 

GTA V was released on PC and still cost Rockstar millions a month to keep free of mods, hackers etc.

 

Rockstargames likes the consoles, since these are way easier and cheaper to maintain. 

 

So I am not sure if it will come. At least not until the game is almost entirely surroundes by a wall of anti hack and anti mod programs

I mean this seems to be a huge complex game. It needs to be easy for them to port it over to PC System. 

 

But you can be sure if the game sells 30 million units in the first quarter of release it will be released for PC Christmas 2019.

It will come for sure, 100% guaranteed. Those rumours are just... rumours and possible a translation error or some misunderstanding. There's no reason for Rockstar to straightaway refuse to release on PC. 

Why no other news publication sites have mentioned about it? Because there's no truth in such rumours.

I'm italian and I watched the multiplayer.it livestream from which this whole thing started and I can confirm that it is 100% a misunderstanding, he just said he tried asking about a PC version and he got the usual "the game is coming out for ps4 and xboxone" answer. The interviewer himself said that this was just a normal R* PR statement, and he wasn't obviously actually expecting a real answer anyway.

 

This whole thing has been blown way out of proportion.

Citation. 

 

Needed. 

 

Seriously how terrible of a company do you think Rockstar are to be spending millions a month for basic security? I can't tell if you're a console fan boy or just gullible.

the problem is that there is such a huge amount of hackers on PC. 
For consoles there is literally no option for hacking, since the systems are entirely locked off by Microsoft and Sony. For PC that is different. 

I am not saying it won't come, I am however trying to explain why Rockstar (and other developers as well) aren't that eager to do a pc release when they can release it without issues on the xbox one or ps4. 

All in all it will definitely take more time (and money for that matter) to create a better security and monitor the Online version of the game for PC.

You've not given any evidence to back up your stupid claim that it costs Rockstar MILLIONS a month to support the pc version. You just went on to make even more one sided claims and lies.

That interview shouldn't really phase anyone, yeah. Rockstar denied the existence of next-gen/PC GTA V until the day it was announced. For like a year straight. Even earlier, if you count people asking around about the PC version since the original announcement trailer in 2011.

 

Also, people hacked the living daylight out of GTAO on 360/PS3 back in the day. The game was like that for over a year until the next-gen versions came. There will always be hackers in games, but they're an incredibly shallow reason to deny an entire game's release. Especially when they can just delay the Online portion until they can spend "millions" to upgrade their security. 😛

I urge you to look at Reddit, Steamcommunity, Rockstar support, and any other gamingoutlet for that matter. 

 

Even now the gta pc servers are still facing the problem with hackers (reddit, support r*). So much, that people actually stopped playing in droves and thousands of fair players (look it up, it is true) were banned. There are hundreds of sites who let players purposefully hack the game, just search for it on google. 

 

I can understand to the full extent that Rockstargames don't want this again, since indeed it takes time (money) to fix this, implement new features which are prone to new hacks, thus again needing to fix new problems. 

 

Again, I am not saying it won't come, but it is a fact that it is not released simultaniously with the X1 and PS4 and no word about it has been uttered that it will ever come to PC. 

 

Believe me when I say that I hope for the PC players it will come. But don't get your hopes up.

For anyone still interested/not convinced, multiplayer.it published an official clarification: https://multiplayer.it/notizie/red-dead-redemption-2-cosa-ha-detto-davvero-rockstar.html

 

I'll translate the relevant part  "[...]someone has poorly translated the words of Pierpaolo, turning it into the categorical exclusion of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 by Rockstar. That's not what happened: Rockstar Games has never said anything like this to Pierpaolo, they merely confirmed what was already widely known, namely that Red Dead Redemption 2 is launching for Xbox One and PS4. This does not exclude and does not confirm the PC version in any way[...]"

That's everything you need to know. As Ash said, it's all about profits from double dippers.

The problem is not if, it's when, my prediction considering that this time there aren't next gen consoles to allow them to triple dip is fall 2019 for the PC version.

Hard to believe it's already been two years since the announcement of this game. Did that Rockstar dude on 4chan leak RDR2 a few days before the announcement in 2016?

Yes, and also lot of completely correct details about GTAO updates before they were even announced, so he's legit.
