Rockstar’s latest title, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out on consoles for more than half a year now with no sign of a PC version besides a couple of rumours and leaks. However, the PC announcement and release might be coming soon thanks to a bit of information from Rockstar themselves(kind-off).
Spotted by Twitter user JakoMako51, the Rockstar Social Club site has a mention of “RDR2_PC_Accomplishments”. This could be a reference to the Achievements/Trophies that are in most games which could mean that Red Dead Redemption 2 is most likely going to be announced soon if PC stands for Personal Computer.
The fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC is now quite evident. #RDR2 #reddeadredemption2pc #RedDeadRedemption2 #rdr2pc #reddeadredemption

PC here could also stand for Player Character as next set of code is “RDR2_PS4_Trophies” while a reference to Xbox’s Achievements is a couple of lines below and not right after PS4. However, the Xbox string does not have any reference to “RDR2_PC_Accomplishments” and the word “PC” itself only appears twice in the whole source code.
So if you ask me, I do think it is the PC version of the game being referenced and not the Player Character since there’s also a reference to the main character of the game, Arthur in the source code.
Red Dead Redemption 2 should be coming to PC soon since GTA V released about 5 months after the Xbox One and PS4 Release. It has been 9 months since Red Dead Redemption 2 released on consoles and we’re nearing the one year release anniversary of the game so maybe we’ll get an announcement around Gamescom and then a release on the one year anniversary of the game.
