The Red Dead Redemption 2 release is getting closer. While Rockstar’s teaser revealed a few details but the game is still a pretty big mystery as we push deeper into the year. With that in mind we want to take you through a few things we want from Red Dead Redemption 2 and its release.
Its hard to believe but its been over six years since Rockstar released Red Dead Redemption, its iconic open-world title that put gamers into the shoes of outlaw John Marston. In the eyes of many people, Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games of all-time. A sequel has some huge shoes to fill.
Last year, after years of rumors and speculation, Rockstar confirmed a sequel and the Red Dead Redemption 2 release is set for later this year.
Since the initial announcement and the release of the above trailer, Rockstar’s been quiet. Gamers dissecting the trailer have uncovered a few potential features but we still don’t know much about Red Dead Redemption 2 and its world.
While we wait for Rockstar to release a fresh round of details here’s a look at a few things we want from Red Dead Redemption 2 the game and a few things we want from the game’s release. Fans of the series have been putting together their own wish lists, here’s ours.
Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Release
This almost goes without saying. Almost.
When Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2 it confirmed the game for two platforms and two platforms only.
When the game is released in the fall, it'll arrive on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We haven't heard anything about Nintendo Switch or Windows PC. Needless to say, people are frustrated. A lot of people.
There's a ton of speculation about the Red Dead Redemption 2 release. A lot of people, including analysts, believe Rockstar will release the game on PC but sometime after the initial release on console. This would be similar to the GTA 5 launch.
Delay or not, we're hoping Red Dead Redemption 2 does make it over to the Windows PC at some point down the road.
PC gamers who have been loyal to Rockstar over the years shouldn't be alienated and forced to buy a console in order to play Red Dead Redemption 2.
Not after the success of GTA 5 and GTA Online. Not after a six year wait for Red Dead Redemption 2 and, better yet, a six year wait to play the original Red Dead Redemption on PC.
Nothing is official until it's official and we hope Rockstar gets this one right.
