The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.
After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive.

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Version
The good news is that publisher Take-Two thinks very highly of the PC market. The bad news is that they don’t sound like they’re preparing to port Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC when it releases next year.
During a recent investor’s call, Take-Two president Karl Slatoff stated that “The great news is that the PC market is vibrant for us. It’s a great market for us. It’s a big market. It’s a core market in consumers that are highly engaged. It’s a predominantly digital market, which also removes friction in terms of ongoing engagement with a consumer. So, for us, the PC market as a company is very important and very exciting and something we focus on.”
That’s the great news. The bad news is that Take-Two was directly asked about the possibility of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC and CEO Strauss Zelnick responded by stating: “Any updates about any of our titles will come from our labels.”
That being the case, it’s possible that Rockstar could decide to put the work in for a PC port, but it’s doubtful that it will release alongside the game’s console versions.
