Red Dead Redemption 2 has started to receive a lot more coverage after the press embargo was lifted today. Rockstar Games were doing a live stream Q&A for Red Dead Redemption 2 and were asked about the PC port.
When it comes to releasing games on PC, Rockstar is known to delay their release for more than a year or two, as it happened with Grand Theft Auto V. The original Red Dead Redemption was never released for PC but rumors about the PC port did make the rounds for the sequel.
During the live stream with MultiplayerIT on Twitch, Rockstar Games were asked to talk about the chance of the game coming to PC. Their answer was pretty clear-cut. They said that it is absolutely not coming to PC.
Update: This is more likely a translation error so this still opens the possibility of the game coming to PC at a later date.

It is hard to argue here since this is the comment by someone officially at Rockstar Games, but still, it won’t be surprising to see the game turn up on PC someday despite this answer since Grand Theft Auto V has sold quite a bit on PC.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was also confirmed to get an online mode just like Grand Theft Auto V online. It will be available after the launch of the game and release as a public beta in November. Those who own Red Dead Redemption 2 will be able to access the online mode for free once it launches in full.
