The new companion app for Red Dead Redemption 2 in available on Android and iOS, and it appears to have dropped a few hints about a possible PC version.
The app lets players view the map and track core stats. In its files are references to PC as one of the game’s platforms.
The lines of code spotted by Rockstar Intel read, “PARAM_companionAutoConnectIpPC” and “CommandIsPcVersion(void) 000000000166A12C.”
Does this mean a PC Version is definitely coming?
One thing is definitely for sure, there’s been no announcement from Rockstar but with PC support implemented in the app. The evidence is there.
Along with earlier leaks such as the LinkedIn profile page of a Rockstar developer with PC listed under Red Dead Redemption 2, which was quickly deleted. As well as the retailer listing which had a PC version due for release next year.
Rockstar already knows of the success they have on PC with GTA V.
PC is one of the biggest earners for parent company Take-Two.
It would be an absolute shame and mistake to not release RDR2 on PC, the question shouldn’t be if. It should be when.
VR is also mentioned, but we can only speculate they will let you play the game in VR? Who knows, after all the first person perspective is already in the game.
However if you can’t wait to play RDR2 (like me, I couldn’t handle the thought of spoilers in my wait) you can play it on Xbox or Playstation for now, and relive the experience on the PC version when we get it!
