Red Dead Redemption 2 app files point towards a possible PC version

Red Dead Redemption 2 comes with its own companion app, and there are apparently files inside the app which contain references to a PC version of the game, with graphic options and resolutions pertaining to PC settings. This doesn’t confirm anything, but it certainly gives more reason to believe that a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 might still be a possibility.

As discovered by Rockstar Intel, the app included a number of parameters worth noting within its files.

Few files that stood out:

CommandIsPcVersion(void) 000000000166A12C

Like mentioned above, the files also have several mentions of graphics settings such as water resolution and reflections, shadow and particle quality, and temporal anti-aliasing. While these don’t directly mention or hint at a PC version, other files such as SIGNIN_PC_APP_URL are definitely stronger hints to indicate a PC version of the game. Presence of words like PcVersion, graphic options you would normally see for PC, the word Oculus (implying there could RDR2 VR in the future as well, maybe?) definitely pain a picture that Red Dead Redemption 2 is heading to PC.

However, it’s not confirmed, and until it is, we might as well assume that the game isn’t coming to PC. Rockstar haven’t said anything about it yet, and we don’t expect them to anytime soon either.

All we can do is hope the game eventually makes it to PC.
