Here is something funny; PC gamers have been begging for a PC version of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption and while that is – technically – possible, the company decided to ignore those requests and start porting another of its flahship games. We are talking of course about L.A. Noire and as you’d expect, with its release almost upon us, the interest of a future PC version of Red Dead Redemption has risen yet again. Well, don’t get your hopes up guys because Rockstar is still not ready to port this game to our beloved platform.
In a recent Max Payne 3 Q&A at their official site, Rockstar stated that they have not abandoned the PC platform as all of their games are coming to it. Except from one though which is what a lot of PC gamers were asking for this entire time, Red Dead Redemption.
As Rockstar stated:
“We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans – that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course we’re well aware that some fans have been asking for it. All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform) – we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms.”
So although it is viable, there seem to be other factors that can’t let Rockstar port this game to the PC. But then again, what would be the culprit as this is not an X360 or an PS3 exclusive title? Figures!
