Rockstar: Red Dead Redemption on PC isn't happening, not 'viable'

David Hinkle of Joystiq writes:
We've got bad news for you and your custom-built, Western-themed PC gaming rig (complete with tumbleweed HDD and whiskey-distilling cooling fan). Rockstar has confirmed that Red Dead Redemption is not coming to the PC. In a Q&A on the company's blog, Rockstar explains, "All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform) – we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms."

Shame. It's one hell of a game.

BattleAxe2359d ago

I've been holding out all this time too...Oh well.

Console gaming is big business...

So why make LA Noire on PC and not RDR?

Jobesy2360d ago

For the same reason some devs make a game for pc but not consoles, it's their choice.

Yea, I'm pretty sure RDR would have more sales on pc then LA. I use to own it for xbox 360 back when I had one, and I would re-buy the game again for pc.

Sobari2360d ago

Guess I won't be playing it, then. Oh well.

and they are working on GTA5...

LA Noire its smaller...

banjadude2360d ago

Damn... have it for PS3 (which is great), but really wanted to also get it for PC, to see what the modding community would come up with.

evrfighter2360d ago

Maybe that's what their scared of.

Look what icehancer did. Made them look like chumps

stu8882359d ago

i don't think this icehancer could make anything to the scale and depth of RDR, and the story...

At the end of the day modders are not as good as developers, otherwise they would be in the development team.

end of.

If you haven't completed this game, don't bother sharing your opinion because its worthless.

stu8882359d ago

why mod this game? it's near perfection.

iamgoatman2359d ago

Although it is a great game, it's no where near perfect, and theres a lot a modding community could add to make it even better, just look at GTA4.

outwar60102359d ago

mods do amazing things more missions would be nice and I've always wanted the ghost rider horse in this game

banjadude2359d ago (Edited 2359d ago )

When I mean mods, I am referring to minor fixes (like textures and stuff), but I mostly refer to mods that add to the game (like new weapons, new missions, etc).
