Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC is closer to release than you might think. Thanks to a video on YouTube we have an idea of what to expect in terms of Red Dead Redemption 2 PC settings. Options such as FXAA, Vsyc, Distance Scaling, Texture Quality, Shader Quality, Shadow Quality, and Refresh Rate are present. The Red Dead Redemption 2 PC build number appears to be 1118.8 too. While it’s too early to tell if this footage is real or not, it ties in with a previous report that a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 is in the works, evidence of which was discovered with the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app. Considering that GTA V showed up on PC two years after the original PS3 and Xbox 360 release, it’s safe to say that we could expect Red Dead Redemption 2 to show up within the same time frame.
Thanks to the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app a host of file parameters have been found to suggest the existence of a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. Nonetheless, Rockstar Games has yet to confirm a possible PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. You can check out the video right here.
This isn’t the only time we’ve heard rumblings of a possible Red Dead Redemption 2 PC release. In the week leading upto the game’s PS4 and Xbox One launch, Dutch website TechTastic spotted a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC listing on Media Markt’s Swedish website, carrying a release date of December 31, 2019. That’s a common placeholder date used by retailers, but it signals that the game might launch on PC sometime next year.
Previously, a LinkedIn profile of a Rockstar Games developer reveals work done on the game for PC in addition to the already known PS4 and Xbox One versions. And while Rockstar Games may have not said anything yet, it pretty much falls in line with what the company did for GTA IV and GTA V. Both games saw PC releases after being available for consoles.
