Red Dead Redemption PC looks increasingly unlikely

While reaffirming its commitment to the platform in one breath, Rockstar has dampened hopes for a PC release of Red Dead Redemption in another.

“We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans – that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course we’re well aware that some fans have been asking for it,” a spokesperson wrote on the Rockstar Blog.

“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 percent of the time for all platforms.

“To PC gamers, we hope that between the Grand Theft Auto titles, and the forthcoming L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3, you’ll have plenty of great Rockstar action to enjoy.”

Rockstar announced a PC version of L.A. Noire late last month; it’s due in early November.

Red Dead Redemption arrived on consoles in May 2010, blitzing award ceremonies for the next twelve months and topping the charts.

Thanks, Ausgamers.
