‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Might Be Coming To PC Via Google Stadia
Yesterday Google spilled more beans about its game streaming service Stadia (though there are definitely still beans in its can). It revealed a few of the games that will be available - including the gruesome looking Baldur's Gate 3 - when it would be launching, and how much it will cost. Importantly, Google also announced some of the developers and publishers that will be releasing games on its service. Importantly, that list includes Rockstar Games.
Google Stadia lets you stream games to pretty much any internet-connected screen. Because the games are being run at its data centres, you don't need to have high-quality hardware to run the game - just good enough internet to load the stream. This means that a smartphone can run a graphically intense game like Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
While Rockstar might be working on a completely new game which it plans to release on Stadia, many of the games shown during the presentation last night were already available on other platforms. They were simply there to say that these games would also be on Stadia. So, there's a good chance Rockstar will be releasing games through Stadia that are already out. AndRockstar's most recent game, of course, is Red Dead Redemption 2.
While Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it was never released for the PC. Neither was the first Red Dead Redemption either, but the latest snub from Rockstar sticks in PC gamers' craw the most. Rockstar has made no announcements on whether the game will be coming to PC, but if it was to be made available on Stadia, then PC players would be able to stream it to their computers.
We've emailed Rockstar to clarify its plans for Stadia, and we'll update this story when we know more.
