Red Dead Redemption 2 PC got denied twice by the Australian Classifications Board. However, it seems the game finally got a rating which means an announcement might be just around the corner.
According to the Australian Classification Board, Red Dead Redemption 2 PC is MA+15.
The game’s original release got MA+15 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well for having strong violence, strong themes, and online interactivity.
The listing on ACB doesn’t mention PC but same is the case with the console versions, their listings don’t mention PS4 and Xbox One. All video games are categorized under “Computer Games” in Australia.
The original classification was awarded back in September last year before the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 and Xbox One. On August 20th, the International Age Rating Coalition filed for classification on behalf of Rockstar Games.
Interestingly, the application got denied for unknown reasons. It took almost a month for Rockstar Games to address whatever the issue the ACB had with its application.
Rockstar Games files separate listings for each platform. GTA 5 PS4 and Xbox One application are separate from its PC rating. And now same is the case with Red Dead Redemption 2 PC.
Rockstar Preparing for Red Dead Redemption 2 PC
Rockstar Games is preparing for the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 PC. The developer just released its very own games launcher which indicates that the game might be exclusive to Rockstar’s client.
Of course, a company like Take-Two won’t miss the opportunity to profit off of this iconic franchise. This would be the first time a Red Dead game is coming to PC.
Thanks to its demand in the PC gaming community the Red Dead Online multiplayer mode, there is a high potential for profit. Fans might not like Rockstar dropping Steam but the profit share margin is causing many developers/publishers to move out of Steam.
Rockstar Games and Take-Two split at least 30% of sales revenue from GTA 5 with Steam and since it is a given that RDR 2 PC will make hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, it isn’t s bad move to keep the 30% and launch their own launcher.
This brings us another launcher for PC gaming but since GOG Galaxy 2.0 is coming, there is nothing really to worry about as all of your games will still be in one place. Do sign up for GOG Galaxy 2.0.
