Red Dead Redemption 2 Rating Hints at Possible PC Port

Is Red Dead Redemption 2 finally coming to PC?

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Port

A recent rating for Red Dead Redemption 2 has fans more convinced than ever that the game’s PC port is finally on the way. 

It seems that Red Dead Redemption 2 officially received a rating of MA 15+ in Australia on August 20. The odd thing is that Red Dead Redemption 2 has already been rated (and released, for that matter) in Australia. 

One of the most common reasons why a game would be rated again after such a long period of time is because a studio is preparing to release that game on a new platform. Unless Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch or mobile devices (and we kind of doubt either of those things are true), the most popular theory at the moment is that RDR 2 is coming to PC. 

While people have been talking about Red Dead Redemption 2‘s PC port since before the game was officially announced, this isn’t the only recent development which supports that theory. Remember that Rockstar also recently revealed a new launcher for their PC games, which feels like the type of thing they might do to pave the way for an RDR 2 port. Red Dead Redemption 2‘s online mode has also received some recent significant updates that finally make it feel like a standalone experience and more than an add-on.

That port would almost certainly be embraced by PC gamers who certainly have enough great games on the horizon to enjoy but wouldn’t turn down the chance to play this game on their preferred platform. Red Dead Redemption 2 had some problems in terms of its presentation and pacing, but it ended up easily ranking among 2018’s greatest games and could very well be Rockstar’s open-world masterpiece

We’ll bring you more on RDR2‘s potential PC port as additional information becomes available.
