Computers have been around for decades, and through them, technology and the world has advanced in many ways. For some, they’ll always be a proud place to do work, or to relax as they go on the internet. But to others, a computer’s main role is to play video games as best it can. From standard store-bought games to places like Steam, the PC universe has a lot of titles, and fans love them. But despite this popularity, certain developers aren’t sure if they’ll bring titles to the PC. Such as Take-Two with Red Dead Redemption 2.
This comes from an earnings report Take-Two had, in which they reported many great things to their investors, including the continued success of GTA 5. They mentioned Red Dead Redemption 2 because they feel it’ll make 2019 a “record year” for them. But, when asked if the game would come to PC, President Karl Slatoff said:
“The great news is that the PC market is vibrant for us. It’s a great market for us. It’s a big market. “
But, he also noted that some titles were built to be on PC, like XCOM or Civilization. And though Take-Two has done well on PC, including with GTA, he wouldn’t commit to Red Dead Redemption 2 being on it.
This is no doubt a big issue, and one that would need to be thought out. On one hand, there are probably a lot of PC users who would like to have the game on PC, but as recent years have shown, if you don’t do a PC port right, you’ll get publicly ridiculed for it. And Take-Two probably wouldn’t want that.
So will they commit the time and resources to making a good PC port? Or will they just forego it in option of having the console versions doing well? We’ll find out.
