Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Keeps Coming Up In GTA Online

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC is coming out sometime soon. The game has been mentioned multiple times by various sources but the latest one is the most interesting.

GTA Online players are seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 PC. The PC version of Grand Theft Auto Online comes with “find and capture the target” short missions.

There are 5 targets in total and after completing all five you get rewarded with a stone axe. As soon as you pick it up a message appears at the top left corner of the screen.

Get 25 kills with this stone axe to unlock a GTA$ reward and exclusive access to this weapon in Red Dead Redemption 2

This is an official promotion of Red Dead Redemption 2 PC but this isn’t the first time something like this came up. Rockstar Games has been promoting RDR2 in every version of GTA Online since last year.

More recently, PC graphics settings for Red Dead Redemption 2 leaked online. The leaker extracted the details from the official RDR 2 Companion app that’s available on iOS and Android devices.

The settings include Graphics, Display, System, Audio, and DX12 which suggests the game will support the latest DirectX version from Microsoft.

The information should be taken with a grain of salt just to be safe but there is enough there to know Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC.

Rockstar Games’ released GTA 5 on PS3 and Xbox 360 months before the game arrived on PS4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, the PC version took another year to release.

It has been almost a year now since Red Dead Redemption 2 came to consoles. If history is any indication, Rockstar Games will announce Red Dead Redemption 2 by the end of the year.

Rockstar is preparing for RDR2 PC with its own game launcher. The company recently announced its very own game launcher which indicates that there is a possibility of the game not coming to Steam. Would you pick up Red Dead Redemption 2 if it is exclusive to Rockstar’s launcher? It is unlikely but still a possibility.

Interestingly, there is more in development at Rockstar than just RDR2. There are multiple leaks, reports, and rumors surrounding the arrival of Bully 2. In fact, GTA Online also hosts Bully easter eggs that point to Bully 2 announcement.

Rockstar has been silent for a while but it seems like the calm before the storm.
