Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Release Latest News & Rumors [2019]

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version may arrive sooner than expected. The RDR 2 PC settings spotted by a GTA Forum member in the game’s files hint that the launch is imminent.

Here are the details:

The Red Dead Redemption 2 console version was released in the second half of last year on Xbox One and PS4. PC gamers have since been anxiously waiting to get the attention of Rockstar studio with no success, up until now.

Recently, some findings have shown that the open-world game for the PC platform is approaching a point of the official announcement.

A VideoTech UK team member has shared his discovery with the GTA community that the game’s files contain codes that point towards the PC settings related to anti-aliasing options, texture quality, refresh rate and more.


Although, some recent reports have claimed that some of the settings, like DirectX 12 support, buried in the lines of codes in the RDR2 companion app, no such mention was spotted in the game’s files unearthed earlier this month.

Here is an excerpt from the original post:

Howdy GTA Forums Community,

The long-awaited PC version for Red Dead Redemption 2 is definitely coming in the future, I have datamined Red Dead Redemption 2’s files and came across a file that holds PC presets and settings. For those who will doubt this leak, well there are monitor settings too (also attached to this post).

Have a look at the code found in the files. There is more code but most of it is grass quality, shader settings, particle settings, motion blur, etc. DirectX 12 support is coming to the PC port, the PC version will have DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 support. @Fun 2’s post a month ago also suggested DirectX 12 support in the RDR2 companion app code so yes it’s definitely coming.

PC Monitor Mentions

These settings hidden between the lines of codes allude to the imminent announcement of the PC version. It’s been almost a year since the console version, so this development can be taken as a sign that Rockstar studio is planning to celebrate the first anniversary of Red Dead Redemption 2 with a bang.
