Take-Two Won’t Confirm or Deny Red Dead Redemption 2 PC, Says PC “is Important”

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC is something we all want to see but Rockstar, as well as Take-Two, has kept their silence. There are a number of rumors and reports of the game being in development for PC as well.  However, nothing official was discussed until now.

According to Take-Two, Red Dead Redemption 2 PC will only be confirmed by their label (Rockstar) but for now, there is nothing to discuss in this regard. President Karl Slatoff said that PC is a very important platform for the company but some titles sell better on consoles, while others are suited for PC.

He used XCOM and Civilization as two examples for successful PC games. Although there has been a DRM leak for Red Dead Redemption 2 PC.

It really depends on the title. Some titles are actually heavily weighted to PC, for example, Civilization and XCOM, [but] some titles are less weighted to PC. The great news is that the PC market is vibrant for us. It’s a great market. It’s a big market. It’s a core market.

These are consumers who are highly engaged. It’s a predominantly digital market, which also removes friction in terms of ongoing engagement with the consumer. So for us, the PC market as a company is very important, very exciting, and something we focus on.

The way he discussed Red Dead and the importance of PC indicate that there might be something going on behind the scenes. Interestingly, he also left it up to Rockstar Games to discuss the future of Red Dead Redemption 2 PC. The delay of Red Dead also fueled speculations that Rockstar wanted to release the PC version simultaneously with its console counterpart.

The delay caused a dip in Take-Two’s stock but the company considers it to be good for its fiscal year 2018.
