Dev Says Red Dead Redemption On PC Was Never Considered

A developer that worked on Red Dead Redemption has admitted there was never any intention to port the game over to the PC.

During a Twitch stream (via NeoGAF), the lead multiplayer designer, Kris Roberts, admitted that there were never any plans to port the game to the PC.

He even went on to say that he was “shocked when they (Rockstar) did a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V“. He mentioned Red Dead Redemption was always going to be for the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles. From his memory, he says there were never any talks for optimizing the game to PC sadly.

Many people agree that Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games to come out of the last generation. The game sold out in many stores when it came out since Rockstar didn’t anticipate how popular the game would become.

It’s very interesting Rockstar never chose to port the game onto PC after the praise the game got on PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s even more interesting that we have not heard of any news for a sequel for the game yet either.

Hopefully a sequel for Red Dead Redemption considers getting made in the near future. For now, fans just have to wait and see what Rockstar decides to do with the IP.
