It appears there is still hope for PC Red Dead Redemption 2 fans waiting to hear release date news from Rockstar Games.
While currently only available to play on PS4 and Xbox One, there has been some good news for RDR2 fans who want to see the game launched on Steam.
Players on consoles, meanwhile, are waiting for the big announcement on when the Red Dead Online beta will begin.
So far, Rockstar has said little on porting the game over to the PC, with no mention of a project being in the works.
However, a recent update from parent Take-Two Interactive can certainly be treated as good news for Red Dead 2 PC hopefuls.
In a recent earnings call, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick answered a short question on the subject of a PC port.
Asked about whether Red Dead 2 would be coming to PC, Zelnick did not rule out the idea but didn’t say much to back up a release either.
He replied: “In terms of ongoing releases, Rockstar will talk about what their intentions are going forward with regard to all upcoming products and that the same would hold true for platform.
“So, in this particular instance, I can’t really give you too much clarity, apologies.”
This would have been the perfect time to rule out a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC release date.
Instead, we got an answer that allows Rockstar Games to make a big announcement in the future, and that can only be treated as a positive for those hoping for a PC port.
There’s certainly a lot of reasons why Red Dead 2 should arrive on PC in the future.
The game would sell bucketloads, as it has done on PS4 and Xbox One and would also benefit from an extended online audience too.
The Red Dead Online beta will start near the end of the month on PS4 and Xbox One and is expected to generate a lot of revenue for Take-Two.
Not only will it benefit from the same template that helped GTA Online to huge success, but Rockstar also knows just how popular RDR2 Online could be.
So far, no set release date has been announced for Red Dead Online for PS4 and Xbox One.
The good news is that Rockstar Games and parent Take-Two Interactive just provided a big update on the subject.
Shared during a recent earnings call, Take-Two Interactive’s Strauss Zelnick provided more information on the Red Dead Redemption 2 Online release date.
Here’s what the Take-Two CEO said on Red Dead Online, adding: “It’s way too early to talk about Red Dead Redemption 2 Online, it hasn’t released yet.
“It will launch in public beta towards the end of the month, and Rockstar will have a lot more to say about it. We’re not making any current predictions.”
Zelnick was answering a question on how he thought Red Dead Online would compare to the release of GTA Online.
This is great news for fans as it means the mode has not been delayed beyond November.
Red Dead Redemption 2 saw a series of delays push back its release date until October 2018, and there may have been fears something similar could happen to the online beta.
However, it looks like the development team are on course to provide a big update in the coming weeks.
Making predictions for when a beta may start is always a little dangerous, but we would suggest the last week of November as a good candidate.
Somewhere between Tuesday, November 26 and Thursday, November 28, seems like a good bet.
Red Dead Online has the chance of building yet another huge multiplayer mode for fans of Rockstar Games titles to enjoy.
