Red Dead Redemption 2 publishers say PC is a “very, very important platform”

Red Dead Redemption 2

In an earnings call, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick says the PC is a “very, very important” platform for them, increasing the hope that the publishers may bring Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC sometime after the game’s console release in October.

Responding to a question about new platforms in the conference call, Zelnick talks a little about how Take-Two handle new console generations, before mentioning how vital the PC now is to their business compared to ten years ago.

“I would observe that the PC platform has become a very, very important part of what we do, driven by digital distribution,” he says. “And that was not the case for so-called ‘console’ titles 10 years ago. And it is the case now.” 

This came immediately after Zelnick spoke about how Grand Theft Auto V was “extraordinary” for how successful it was in crossing different platforms and generations, and added “we will make decisions about what [platforms] to support based on our view of potential success”.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on PS4 and Xbox One in October, and if the PC is as important to Take-Two as their CEO makes it sound, there may be a PC port on its way too. One game from them you shouldn’t expect any time soon, however, is Borderlands 3 – which is almost certainly the “highly anticipated” game they have delayed until 2020.
