While Red Dead Redemption 2 has not been announced yet for the PC, Take Two’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, claimed during an investor conference that it would be really easy to bring the game on the PC platform.
When asked about a possible PC version, Zelnick stated that it would be a layup for them (meaning that it would be easy to do), and that there would be no downside releasing Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PC.
“There is no downside to releasing the game on PC.”
Of course this brings us to today, nearly 7 months after the game’s release on current-gen consoles. Since its release on both PS4 and Xbox One, we’ve seen numerous hints regarding a PC version, however nothing has been officially announced as of yet.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; bringing Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PC appears to be a matter of “when” and not a matter of “if”.
Our guess is that Rockstar and Take-Two may bring this title on the PC once next-gen consoles hit the streets. Rockstar may release a remastered version of RDR2 on PS5 and the next Xbox console and if that happens, it will be the perfect time to also bring it to the PC.
We also suggest tempering your expectations regarding this year’s E3 as we don’t expect Take-Two to reveal Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PC during this gaming event (there is a small chance since Epic Games will have a big presence at E3 2019, however – and from what we’ve heard so far – a PC announcement seems unlikely).

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
