Red Dead Redepmtion designer claims there was never an intention to do a PC port

Former lead multiplayer designer at Rockstar San Diego, Kris Roberts, has revealed during a live stream on Twitch that the studio had never intended to bring Red Dead Redemption to PC. The developer went on to express his shock at the existence of a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V.


Roberts did concede that Red Dead Redemption’s development was entirely PC-based and that it was up and running on win32 clients. Despite all that, Rockstar San Diego never seriously considered optimizing the game for the PC platform. As far as licensing is concerned, it was always going to be an Xbox 360 and PS3 title.

This may come as a huge disappointment for Red Dead Redemption fans who play exclusively on the PC. The game is considered one of the most popular console titles from the last generation.

If you feel that Red Dead Redemption deserves to be on the PC (or even PS4 and Xbox One, for that matter) and that Rockstar San Diego should seriously consider porting it over, make yourself heard! Let us know in the comments below.
