GTAO profits are soaring, but we still don’t know whether Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC

It’s still not a sure thing that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC.

During its recent earnings call, Rockstar parent company Take Two heaped praise on the PC platform, calling it a vibrant and big digital market with plenty of potential for “engagement with a consumer” – “the PC market as a company is very important and very exciting and something we focus on.” But when pressed for a statement from an investor on the status of a possible PC version of RDR2, CEO Strauss Zelnick deferred comment to the studios, meaning Rockstar itself.

“Any updates about any of our titles will come from our labels,” he said.

Read Dead Redemption 2 was announced last October with a fall 2017 date and promises about the “online multiplayer experience.” But just ahead of its last investor call — and on the heels of the announcement of potential rival Wild West Online — Rockstar announced a delay of RDR2 to spring 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to give it more time to cook (and causing a dip in Take-Two’s stock).

The good news for both companies this time is that Grand Theft Auto Online is in the middle of a surprise record year and best quarter ever.

Take-Two says the PC market is “very important” but won’t commit to Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. Exactly what you said. They have no reason to rush the PC version when they can double dip customers like they did with GTA5.

Oh course it will come! They just want to squeeze all the money they can from the console market and then make you buy it again on PC….

Hate to say it, but I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what they’re doing. It’s highly likely that they feel they count on one to two million duplicate sales if they keep quiet about confirmation until about six month after initial release.

For what it’s worth, I have received exactly zero correspondence, update, or email from WWO since I got the early bird package June 7th.
