'Red Dead Redemption 2' Leak Suggests PC Release

A Rockstar developer leaked through his LinkedIn account that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available for PC players.

It's been the news PC gamers and fans of the series have been waiting for, but until now there has been no confirmation of whether it would be happening.

Now, we know this isn't an official statement but the developer who accidentally shared the information has previously worked on LA Noire and GTA V.

According to their LinkedIn, they are also part of the Red Dead 2 team and their profile clearly states the game is due to come out on "PS4/XBox1/PC."

The leak was found by the Rockstar community, TGFG, who have been the masterminds behind GTA Easter egg discoveries such as the alien of Mt. Chilead.

Although this confirms the title will be available for PC, there are rumours it might replicate what happened when GTA V first launched.

Rockstar initially released it on PS3 and Xbox 360 exclusively, and it only came to PC five months after the new generation of consoles received the game.

If they decide to follow the same method, PC gamers might have to wait until 2020 at least before they can play it, as that's when both Sony and Microsoft predict their new consoles will be ready.

The game will probably be an upgraded version, however, as that's what it was last time around. It also helped Rockstar sell a lot more copies than if they released it conventionally, and it resulted in GTA V breaking all sorts of sales records.

It's kind of a bittersweet discovery, and an official statement will probably come in the near future. Is this the news you've been waiting for?
