'Red Dead Redemption 2' PC Rated By Australian Classification Board
Sunrises. Star Wars sequels. Nickelback albums that make me want to tear my own ears off. Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. Some things are inevitable. Since arriving on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in October last year to considerable critical acclaim and massive sales, PC gamers (at least the ones without consoles) have been eagerly wondering when exactly they'll be able to get a slice of the considerably delicious Wild West pie from Rockstar Games. Given the sheer volume of leaks, rumours, and speculation that point towards the existence of just such a port, I think we've all long-assumed that Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is a case of "when", and not "if".
The latest, and perhaps most compelling, piece of evidence pointing towards Arthur Morgan's epic adventure coming to PC comes via the The Australian Classification Board, of all places. VG247 reports that the board's website was recently updated to include a new listing for Red Dead Redemption 2, classified on August 20. It was awarded a rating of MA 15+, if you were wondering, same as the original release.
It is worth pointing out that this updated listing doesn't specifically mention PC as the platform, but neither did the original rating mention PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Unless the game is coming to Nintendo Switch (which is unlikely), or Rockstar is releasing some kind Game of the Year edition (also unlikely), then the only realistic option is that the game is finally coming to PC. Then again, I once said that The Witcher 3 would never, ever in a million years come to Switch, so what the hell do I know?
The discovery of a new classification for Red Dead Redemption 2 lines up pretty nicely with the recent launch of Rockstar's very own PC launcher, a one-stop shop for PC gamers to launch, buy, update, and play any and all Rockstar-developed titles that are currently available on PC, similar to EA's Origin and Ubisoft's Uplay.
Between this, the recently-discovered rating, and the impending one-year anniversary of the game's console launch, I think it's fair to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC is looking pretty damn likely - and it was already looking fairly likely to begin with.
Assuming we do get Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC before Christmas, can you imagine how much more gorgeous the game is going to look on a high-end machine when modders get their hands on it. I'm actually shaking with excitement at the thought of it.
