Red Dead Redemption, the critically acclaimed 2010 cowboy action-adventure game developed by Rockstar San Diego and published by Rockstar Games, may finally be coming to the PC following what has been years of exclusivity on console platforms, including PS3, Xbox 360, and, more recently, Nintendo Switch and PS4, according to new marketing strings that have been uncovered from Rockstar. The text, which is said to stem from “Rockstar’s launcher site file,” calls on players to experience the epic Western adventures “on PC.”

The texts in question:

  • “RDR ProductPromotion Intro_Body”: “Journey across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico in Red Dead Redemption, and its zombie-horror companion, Undead Nightmare, now playable on PC.”
  • “RDR ProductPromotion Intro_LongTit1e”: “Experience the epic Western adventures that defined a generation. “

The original word from @TezFunz2:

Rockstar on RDR’s PS4 and Nintendo Switch ports:

These new conversions of the original games were crafted specifically for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and both are showcased at a framerate of 30 FPS, up to 1080p resolution on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, up to 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro, and in full 4K on PlayStation 5 (via backwards compatibility).
