Red Dead Redemption 2: Rumors about PC Version Announcement

The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 does exist. This is been said after a former developer’s LinkedIn profile hinted on it.

Rockstar games have not officially announced the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 yet. Players are keen to know more regarding the topic from official or semi-official sources.

The most recent mention was on the LinkedIn page for Nan Ma. He is a physics programmer who spent over six years at Rockstar’s Toronto office. Ma has worked on Max Payne 3, GTA 5 and GTA Online.

Earlier, the page mentioned that Ma even contributed to Red Dead Redemption 2. The game was listed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in his profile. But, now all of the mentions of it has been removed.

The page was first discovered by a Reddit user with id bongos_mongos. He took a screenshot of it.

It is quite shocking to notice that Ma’s tenure at Rockstar Toronto ended in October 2016. Which was two years before the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on consoles. This also indicates that production of the PC version was underway since then.

However, it is also possible that the developer thought that work on the PC version might end up by then. Therefore, he might have included the platform in his profile. Hence, we are still uncertain and none of this confirms Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to PC. Plans may have changed for the publishers.

This is not the first time we have seen the PC version pop up on a Rockstar developer’s resume. A similar thing happened a year ago with a Rockstar Leeds member.

Earlier, publishers during the game launch said that PC is a very important platform for the company. However, they did not confirm whether the game will make it to PC or not. Shortly after launch, CEO Strauss Zelnick also didn’t give a clear answer to the question asked related to the PC version.
