At a recent conference in New York, Take-Two's CEO Strauss Zelnick gave what sounds like the first affirmative statement regarding a potential PC port for Red Dead Redemption 2. This comes after months of dodging the question of any PC version for Rockstar's western.
During the Q&A portion at Baird's 2019 Global Consumer, Technology & Services Conference, Zelnick was asked to respond to comments that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be a "layup" for the company. To which Zelnick responded, "There is no downside to releasing the game on PC."
Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC feels like a question of when rather than if, but so far there's been frustratingly little talk about a PC port from Rockstar Games. Zelnick has repeatedly told investors that a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 was up to Rockstar, or that focus was on the console versions of the game.
Now, however, it seems that Take-Two's chief executive has at least acknowledged the benefits of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC.
Speculation for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC has been rampant since before the game even came out. Dataminers discovered what looked like PC control prompts in a Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app, further fueling speculation.
There's also the matter of the success Grand Theft Auto 5 has had on the PC platform. Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the best-selling games this generation, and with Red Dead Online out of beta it might be a good opportunity to capture some of GTA's success on a new platform.
