Is Rockstar Developing Red Dead Redemption 2 For PC?
One of the most anticipated AAA titles for 2017 is Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2. The latest iteration of the Red Dead franchise is the center of rumors and talks in the past months but none of which were confirmed nor denied by the developers. The franchise has always been exclusive to PlayStation and Xbox consoles and the latest teaser trailer did nothing to augment that feeling of isolation from the PC fans - especially as the studio explicitly announced that the game shall once again, be released on the two platforms. However, a leak from the anti-tamper company, Denuvo may have just revealed that Rockstar is in fact, developing a PC variant for the Red Dead Redemption 2.
Leaked Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Variant
Last week, Denuvo, a popular anti-tamper company was hacked and tons of confidential files were leaked online. Among the pieces of information that were released was a list of developers that are planning to use Denuvo as DRM protection. Most of the names were to be expected especially for the upcoming prominent titles but one name has left a lot of fans guessing.
The list of the developers, Rockstar included, was first revealed on Reddit where a lot of fans have then speculated as to why the studio has made its way onto the list. Remember that Rockstar recently opted to use Steam's DRM protection for its GTA 5 PC variant. And so, what other big titles needed some protection? The speculations pointed out to one, the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 which is slated to be released in the Fall of 2017.
Whilst GTA 4 could be another potential reason, the information that were leaked were a lot recent than the aforementioned title. And what's more, it would make a lot of sense that Rockstar wouldn't want to make the same "mistake" as the previous title, leaving the PC fans isolated from fun.
Considering how immensely popular GTA 5 has become for all of the three platforms: PC, Xbox One and PS4; Rockstar may have just realized that opening up their latest Red Dead sequel to the PC community would rake in a lot of popularity, positive reviews and revenue. But at the end of the day, until Rockstar confirms any rumor surrounding its upcoming title, any news is nothing but speculations.
