New Datamine Suggests Red Dead Redemption Coming To PC

Later this week marks the 14 year anniversary since the release of Red Dead Redemption. First released on May 18 2010, the title launched the Red Dead Redemption name to Grand Theft Auto levels of fame and hype amongst Rockstar fans and gamers alike. Now, a new datamine from the Rockstar Launcher site for PC has found signs that the title is gearing up for a PC launch. Whilst the leaked text certainly seems reliable, keep in mind that nothing is official yet!

The leak comes from Tez2 over on X (formerly Twitter), a popular account that tracks changes to Rockstar Games titles. A piece of promotional text was added to the Rockstar Launcher files that reads “journey across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico in Red Dead Redemption, and its zombie-horror companion, Undead Nightmare, now playable on PC.”

Despite only having two series entries, Red Dead Redemption is already a landmark gaming franchise.

PC gamers have waited an awfully long time for Red Dead Redemption, with the game never releasing natively anywhere except Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The only way it’s been possible to play Red Dead Redemption on PC in the past has been through emulation, which is particularly difficult and rife with technical issues. A native PC port would solve them all, and open the doors to the world of modding, a major boost to the longevity of any PC release.

We’ll be sure to provide more details if and when this Red Dead Redemption release gets confirmed for PC. Would you be interested in picking up the game?
