No Red Dead Redemption for PC

Written by David Stellmack

Not going to happen
Despite many PC owners asking Rockstar to bring Red Dead Redemption to the PC platform, the company confirms that it will not be happening. The company has received requests for a PC version since the console versions were released; and at one point it did seem like a possibility that it could happen, but in a recent Q&A session on the Rockstar blog the company claims that releasing the game for the PC isn’t viable.

Rockstar goes on to say that they consider multiple factors when choosing whether a game will be released for the PC platform; and these factors include if it is technically viable, developmentally viable, and if it makes sense business-wise for the company to do it. The company explained that sometimes it just does not work out for all platforms all of the time.

Sill, Rockstar is releasing a number of titles for the PC, including the Grand Theft Auto titles and LA Noire and Max Payne 3. The company is still committed to releasing titles for the PC platform in the future, but Red Dead Redemption will not be one of them.

Keep your console crap!

After GTA4, I would be embarrassed to port another game, too!

Gaming companies need to take the lead such as Bethesda Softworks where they design the game for PC then perhaps port it over to consoles which are more than 5 Generations behind. This nonesense about creating console games then porting them over to PC is rediculous and needs to stop ASAP.

Take for instanse, (PC Version) Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, rated as being one of the best Graphical Masterpieces of all time. You can take that to the bank. Good job Bethesda.

By the end of 2012 to Q1 2013, PC gaming will either equal or surpass Console gaming claims inustry sources. I AGREE!!!!

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Quoting Super XP:

And then sue a very small gaming house for the use of words? Perhaps they should patent troll individual letters, I wonder who has patented those?

Super Xp WTF do you talk about?

Skyrim is developed first for Xbox 360 then ported to PC, thats the reason you wont see DX10 or DX11 in Skyrim...
Good thing is Bethesda wont screw up, they do porting ok, still far what could be if they develop Pc only.

How about RAGE !!! Bethesda is owner of ID today is RAGE a PC game, its console port.
But Catalyst 11.10 preview 2 and custom config do make it very playable but still do you think its ok to publish game like that?

BRINK and many more...
