The reveal made me happy, but the news that it’s not coming to PC threw me into deep depression

First read the announcement news right here. Done? Continue with the story below.

After two teaser images in two days, GTA V developer Rockstar Games has finally announced Red Dead Redemption 2 via Twitter. The game is due in Fall 2017. While it hasn’t explicitly listed the platforms it will be playable on, it appears to be exclusive to the PS4 and Xbox One if the absence of a PC or Steam logo on the site is to be believed. And much like GTA V, expect an online multiplayer component as well.

“Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience,” reads the description on the site’s page.

“With Red Dead Redemption 2, the team is working hard to push forward our vision for interactive entertainment in a truly living world,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games in a prepared statement.  “We hope to deliver players an epic experience that builds upon everything we’ve learned making games.”

While the first Red Dead Redemption never made it to PC, that hasn’t stopped gamers from requesting it. Red Dead Redemption 2’s apparent lack of visibility for PC won’t do Rockstar any favours. However, we won’t be surprised to see it take the same approach it did to GTA V with a competent PC release down the line. Red Dead Redemption 2’s trailer will debut at 11am ET (8:30pm IST) on October 20.

Earlier it was rumoured that a new game in the Red Dead series was  to be the final game at Sony’s E3 2016 conference. While Rockstar claims a Fall 2017 release, we won’t be surprised to see it delayed given how production tends to go on the company’s many games.

In the past Rockstar Games’ publisher Take-Two claimed it was crucial series. CEO Strauss Zelnick noted Red Dead among the company’s “permanent franchises” at the Cowen and Company’s Technology, Media and Telecom Conference in 2014.

“It’s obvious that GTA is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that Red Dead is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat,” he said at the time.  Source: NDTV Gadgets
