According to rumors, the Red Dead Redemption 2, which was previously available only for consoles, will be released for the PC this summer. However, the action game should be offered exclusively in the Epic Game Store – not only temporary, but permanent. Among players this leads again to discussions.
Rumors are to be treated with caution
Originally, the successful Red Dead Redemption 2 appeared on October 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a PC version of the Western Adventures developer Rockstar Games has never confirmed or denied. Since the announcement of the game, therefore, rumors about a Portierung entwine, but the last months it became quieter. Now, an anonymous post in Forum 4Chan is attracting attention. As a result, the PC version will be announced on April 22, 2019 and will be released on July 9. Distributor is Epic Games; other traders should not lead the title, not delayed.
There are no other indications, so the statements should be viewed with the utmost skepticism. At least for the exclusivity would be the fact that even Borderlands 3 will be available at least temporarily only through the Epic Games Store. Its publisher 2K Games, in turn, is part of Take Two Interactive – as well as Rockstar Games, as noted by players in discussions that have sprung up on Reddit. Meanwhile, rumors of 4Chan were also spreading to Borderlands 3 before the game was officially announced.
Meanwhile, Rockstar Games remains its own Launcher Social Club. As a rule, games of the developer were always directly available. Accordingly, a model would be conceivable, as Ubisoft at The Division 2 or last Anno 1800 showed: Both games are off the own platform after market launch only to buy at Epic Games.
