Australian Classification Board has just rated Red Dead Redemption 2 again, suggesting that a PC announcement could be imminent. One of the main reasons why games need to be classified again are the new versions.

Rumours about Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version just won't go away in the last few months. Earlier this year, a rumour claimed that Rockstar Games plan to reveal Red Dead Redemption 2 on Google Stadia event but that one turned out to be fake.

There are also some clues in the game files, which reveal the option for PC graphics settings. Rockstar Games never officially denied that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC and according to the latest news, the announcement of the PC version could be imminent.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was rated once again in Australia by the Australian Classification Board, which is usually done when a new version of the game is about the release. The application was submitted by the IARC, which is an international classification system that partially automates the process of getting a rating. If you're wondering why the application wasn't submitted by Rockstar, well, the first application was, but it was also rejected for unknown reasons so the system automatically applied for the rating once again.

Unfortunately, there is no mention of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 on the website but as mentioned earlier new releases like physical editions or PC versions are just some of the reasons why the games need to be classified again.

Of course, the rating doesn't mean that Red Dead Redemption 2 is 100 per cent coming to PC, it just gives us more hints that Rockstar are indeed planning to announce the game soon. That being said, just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info, take it with a grain of salt.

Also, Rockstar Games recently released their own launcher on PC, which could be another clue to the whole Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC story. We'll just have to wait and see.
