RUMOR: Leaked Footage of a Possible Red Dead Redemption II PC Port Surfaces

Red Dead Redemption II has not only been one of the standout games of the year, but has become one of the landmark experiences this console generation. Much like Grand Theft Auto V a few years ago, fans have been clamoring for Rockstar’s open world game to come to the land of PC gaming since its original announcement. While the company has yet to confirm the possibility of the Wild West project making it way to PC, it looks as though the port’s development may very well already be under way.

A user on YouTube has uploaded a video depicting someone playing a copy of Red Dead Redemption II on PC, with full keyboard and mouse support. While it is possible for someone with an association to Rockstar to have a development copy of the game, the layout of controls and options seem to align up specifically with that of a PC port. The player also cycles through all of the options available to him, which include options for custom resolution, VSync, and refresh rate, which are all customization options traditionally found in PC games.

The YouTube account who uploaded the video cited in this article states specifically that he/she has only re-uploaded the video due to the account who originally uploaded the video being removed. While this may fall under a copyright legality, it is interesting to see the account become completely removed when the video gained traction.

In the months leading up to Grand Theft Auto V’s PC announcement and release, a similar situation occurred, when a video of a similar structure was leaked. The video showed a variety of similar options specific to PC gaming, just as the supposed leaked video for Red Dead Redemption II does.

Red Dead Redemption II released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26th, 2018 to both critical and fan acclaim, citing its immense realism, vibrant and living world, and theatrical-level narrative.

Please keep in mind that this is a rumor, with no confirmation from Rockstar or its parent company Take-Two on the game coming to PC. Until official word comes from either of those entities, please regard the video as questionable.
