Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Denied Australian Classification

Australian Ratings Board has denied Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version twice. The news of this has been coming up Rockstar fan circles over the past few days. Back on August 2oth, the International Age Rating Coalition filed for classification on behalf of Rockstar Games for a title called “Bonaire,” a game assumed to be Red Dead Redemption 2 PC.

The Australian Rating Board denied classification to the game for a very simple reason, there is no game called “Bonaire.” Later on, Rockstar Games filed for classification yet again but this time for Red Dead Redemption 2 and oddly for some reason the game got denied again.

But why is Rockstar trying to get ratings in Australia even though the game is already released? Well, this could be the rumored RDR 2 PC version. Back when GTA 5 came out, Rockstar Games filed consoles and PC version separately. Ratings for PS3/360, PS4/XboxOne, and PC are all filed separately for GTA 5.

It seems Rockstar is trying to do the same with Red Dead Redemption 2 but for reason, it got denied for the second time as well.

There have been multiple instances where we were able to spot Red Dead Redemption 2 PC. Eagle eyes viewers were able to spot the game in Rockstar’s own Social Hub source code.  Elsewhere, the game’s graphical options came to the limelight.

But more recently RDR2 PC was mentioned in the official companion app and it popped up in GTA Online as well.

GTA Online players saw Red Dead Redemption 2 PC. The PC version of Grand Theft Auto Online has “find and capture the target” short missions and when completed, the following message comes up.

As soon as there is more information about the game, we’ll let you know but rest assured, Red Dead Redemption 2 is indeed coming to PC sometime next year.
