Rockstar's latest game, Red Dead Redemption II, has been an outstanding success across the Xbox One and PS4. But will there ever be a release date for PC for the game? Rockstar's hugely successful GTA V, first launched in 2013 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, following which it saw a release on the PS4 and Xbox One, was also eventually released on the PC.

It's not like GTA V releasing on the PC was a mistake. The game saw over 12 million copies sold on Steam and other platforms. So can we expect Rockstar (or their parent company, Take-Two Interactive) to release a PC version as they did for GTA?

A few days ago, there was a leak that is allegedly gameplay footage of Red Ded Redemption for the PC. We can't confirm the legitimacy of this leak nor can we verify if it is true information. But there are so many signs to prove that it is indeed real.

For instance, the menu shows options to to adjust vsync, shader quality, texture quality, shadow quality, reflection quality and more. The video still hasn't been taken down. You can also see the mouse movements. Something similar has happened a few months before the GTA V PC release.

According to Rockstar Intel, there were many hints in the RDR2 Companion App as well. They did some digging and found the command line "CommandIsPcVersion(void) 000000000166A12C" along with some PC setting adjustments, which strongly hints at an upcoming PC version for the game.

Last, but not least, a former Rockstar employee (anonymous, of course) had listed "Red Dead Redemption 2- PS4/Xbox1/PC" in his job experience. This could have been an error or a typo of course, but what if it wasn't?

Several media outlets have asked Take-Two about their plans to release RDR2 on the PC, but they haven't commented so far. One can only hope this leak is indeed an indicator for PC gamers!
