Back in 2010 Red Dead Redemption released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which was much to the dismay of PC owners as the game never made a release on their gaming platform of choice. It turns out that Rockstar never 'seriously' considered a PC version for Red Dead Redemption.
During a Twitch livestream, Kris Roberts, a former Rockstar employee that had acted as Red Dead Redemption’s lead multiplayer designer spoke on the subject of a PC release for Red Dead.
“I don’t think there was ever an intention to have a PC version of Red Dead Redemption,” said Roberts. “I was actually super shocked that they did a PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5.” Interestingly enough, GTA V did fairly well in PC sales with over 75% of GTA V purchases being on the PC. The fact that Red Dead never hit the PC is a shame – the series could have had a bigger impact for Rockstar — the money those sales brought in could have brought about a sequel by now.
“To the best of my recollection, we never even seriously talked about optimizing it for PC.”
