A LinkedIn profile of an employee of Rockstar Games, who's worked on the company's games GTA V and LA Noire, lists an interesting piece of info, which is that Red Dead Redemption 2 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Naturally, eagle eyed users have caught onto this, prompting many a fan to throw their cowboy hats in the air. As you probably already know, Red Dead Redemption has never found it's way to the PC, which is a shame really all things considering.

We've actually pondered this for a while now, because there's just no way that Microsoft or Sony can pay Rockstar more than they'd make on the PC. I mean, GTA V has proven to be such a magnificent cash cow that it does indeed make sense for Rockstar to step away from Microsoft and Sony's dreams of exclusivity and unleash Red Dead Redemption 2 on the master race.

Of course, this is still far from an actual fact but it's not like Rockstar haven't been doing similar stuff with their Grand Theft Auto franchise. Their console games traditionally preceded PC releases, which I've always considered a nice sort of demo for the real thing. Yeah I said it and I meant it, because PC versions regularly blew their console counterparts out of the water in every single aspect.

As the story goes, Red Dead Redemption 2 follows outlaw gunslinger Arthur Morgan, with some of the returning cast as well in Dutch Van Der Linde and John Marston, the guy you played as in the original game. It will retain the original's Honour system as well, maintaining the dynamics of the hostile surroundings.

From what the trailers showed so far, RDR2 looks absolutely gorgeous and at this point, I'm really hoping for a PC version because it is likely to look even better. GTA's PC versions regularly outclassed PlayStation and Xbox versions and besides - it was about time we've seen something new from Rockstar.
