According to Strauss Zelnick, There Are “No Downsides” to Bringing the Game to PC
Red Dead Redemption may have never launched on PC, but it seems that Take-Two Interactive may forge a different path with Red Dead Redemption 2. Chief Executive Strauss Zelnick for the Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar, hints the studio has an interest in releasing on PC.
During an investor call this week, one person is quoted saying a PC release would be a “layup”. This is in reference to the basketball move in which a lay-up is an all but certain two points. Zelnick responded by saying “There is no downside to releasing the game on PC”.
This is important because Zelnick has a reputation for shrugging off questions about a PC port. His response usually mimics the same anecdote about how any updates on Rockstar game would come from the developer themselves. This makes it all the more interesting that Zelnick has chosen to change his tune now. Could Red Dead Redemption 2 be coming to PC in the near future? If this is any indication, it certainly seems to be boding well.
While it remains unknown if Rockstar will release a PC version anytime soon, the developers are spending a lot of time improving Red Dead Redemption 2’s online mode. Recent updates continue to improve the experience players can enjoy on the dusty trails of the digital Wild West.
