Red Dead Redemption 2 Coming to PC on November 5

Rockstar Games is pretty notorious for ignoring the PC market. The publisher recently got in the habit of porting their current marquee titles to the platform at least a year after its original launch with Grand Theft Auto V reaching Windows PC nearly two years after its September 2013 release. Now, Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally gracing the PC market on November 5th first on Epic Games Store and then Rockstar’s own launcher. Steam fans fortunately have to wait until December to enjoy RDR 2 on their platform. Google Stadia will also have the game in November.

Rockstar simultaneously announced some special promotions for their new launcher to incentivize consumers. Until October 22nd, the publisher is allowing gamers to download two games of their choosing from this selection: GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, and Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition.

Pre-ordering Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Rockstar Games Launcher discounts the upgrade to the Special and Ultimate Edition by $20. Pre-ordering RDR2 on the launcher will also come with the Outlaw Survival Kit, which provides players with a nice set of goodies to start their journey.

If you haven’t already installed the Rockstar Games Launcher, you can still do so while acquiring a free digital copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas until October 8th. Unfortunately, there has been no word on a Red Dead Redemption PC port, let alone a PS4 or Xbox One one from Rockstar. Technical specifications have not yet been disclosed by the publisher; however, you should be fine if it’s above the hardware capabilities of either home console.

What do you think of this sudden news? Will you begrudgingly install Rockstar Games Launcher to reap the rewards the company is providing? Let us know in the comments below!
