Red Dead Redemption 2 is widely regarded as a fairly accurate representation of the southwestern United States in the late nineteenth century. However, one group is not pleased with Rockstar’s depiction of the wild wild west. The Pinkerton Incorporation is suing Rockstar Games and its parent company, Take-Two. The Pinkertons filed a cease and desist order this past December and contended that Rockstar had no right to use the Pinkerton name in the game. They insisted that Take-Two either pay royalties or settle outside of court. They are particularly frustrated that they “are used as... Read more...

Well, bust our britches, it appears that Rockstar Games will in fact release its highly anticipated and well received Red Dead Redemption 2 game to the PC platform, in case there was any doubt about that eventuality. While still not confirmed (drats!), digging through the code in the RDR2 companion app hints at a PC port in the making.

The long awaited sequel to Red Dead Redemption released in 2010 will not come out this fall as originally planned. Instead, Rockstar Games announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed until spring of next year, as it needs additional time to make sure the sequel lives up to expectations.

For whatever reason, Rockstar Games never seems to prioritize the PC. We see it with every Grand Theft Auto release—first it releases to consoles, then sometime way later it finally moseys on over to PC where a still eager audience awaits.

Does that mean there will never be a PC port? Not so fast. Though Rockstar didn't say anything about a PC version arriving at a later did, it also didn't specifically say there wouldn't be a PC port.... Read more...
