As we've reported, Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't currently slated to release on PC when it launches in Spring 2018. That may not change and the massively anticipated Western sequel could be exclusive to consoles.
During a quarterly earnings call, Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive discussed how important PC is for its business, and the response may give little hope for a Red Dead Redemption 2 release on the platform. During the call Take-Two President Karl Slatoff was asked how important PC is to its major titles, in which he replied:
"The answer to that really depends on the title. Some titles are heavily weighted to PC, for example Civilization an XCOM, and some titles are less weighted to PC. So it's really on a title-by-title basis. The great news is that the PC market is vibrant to us, it's a great market for us and a big market, and a core market," Mr. Slatoff said.
"These are consumers that are highly engaged, and PC is predominantly digital and allows for great engagement with the consumer. For us the PC market is very important, very exciting, and something we focus on."
Of course one analyst outright asked Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick if Red Dead Redemption 2 will come to PC, and as you'd expect, Mr. Zelnick waived off the question. "Any updates about any of our titles will come from our labels," he said, which pretty much means "it's up to Rockstar."
