The Original Red Dead Redemption Is Getting A PC Port Soon 26

Did you know the prequel to the popular Rockstar title Red Dead Redemption 2 was never released on PCs? The original Red Dead Redemption was a console-exclusive title that was only launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 when it was released back in 2010, though the game has since made its way to newer consoles like PS4, PS5, and even Nintendo Switch. Based on recent findings, however, it looks like PC gamers finally have a chance to get this game soon.

@TezFunz2 has posted their latest findings on X (Twitter), which reveals a code string mentioning the PC version of the RDR found on Rockstar’s launcher site file. While the developer has yet to make the announcement, it looks like the launch of RDR on PC platforms is all but confirmed at this point. Like the ports found on the Nintendo Switch and PS4/PS5, the game’s description suggests that both the base game and the Undead Nightmare DLC will be bundled together in a single purchase when it launches.

Porting the game to PC will require more effort, however – unlike consoles, where a game’s visual settings can be designed around a few basic presets, PC ports often have to accommodate a wide range of hardware, thus requiring significantly finer control of the game’s graphics. 4K support is out of the question, as it is already supported on PS4 Pro; though it’s unclear if Rockstar may introduce higher resolution textures or various quality improvements over the original to modernize the game’s look in the remastered form.
