Game News: WHAT IS HAPPENING with Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC?

Time for investor season and all the fun news game publishers like to trot out to brag to their investors about all the ways they've got money out of their endless piggy-banks (that's us, the gamers!). Or, in Take-Two's case, tap-dancing around any confirmation or denial of a PC version for Red Dead Redemption 2.

    There is some logic to this. The consoles are predictable environments. No PC is exactly like another. It's easier to get the game working right in the predictable environment first before taking the project further into the turbulent waters that are PCs. While my preference would be to aim for high-end PC and scale back for console as necessary, that's simply a bad business model.

    So, I'll accept the delay for porting to my preferred platform if it means a more solid game when it arrives, but I'll still be sad for high end PCs not seeing their full potential with such games as so few developers will beef up their console game for a monster PC. (R* has done it, but I can't think of anyone else who has right now. There may have been more. Did Projekt Red do it?)

    Wasn't the first game called Red Dead Revolver? After the most recent one was called Red Dead Redemption, I was expecting something different than "2". Revenge? Retribution? Reconstruction? Restart? Revolution? Resale? Rewaxed? Reread? Repeat?

    This brings back memories of when Dragon Age abandoned the original plan of calling them all Dragon Age with a secondary one-word title that they stated in an interview for Origins and went with II for the second one, which was ill-received. It might have been better received if it was titled Dragon Age: Kirkwall instead so people wouldn't necessarily feel sideswiped by it being nothing like Origins. Sticking 2 on something makes people expect more of the same. RDRevolver and RDRedemption are rather different. RDR2 will make people expect more RDRedemption.
