Red Dead Redemption may be coming to PC after all – rumour

Monday, 12th May 2014 19:35 GMT By Sherif Saed

A listing of Red Dead Redemption has been found in a database maintained by Microsoft to help in determining application compatibility with its various operating systems.


The listing was discovered by a GAFer today and it shows the cover of the game with various compatibility statuses for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1.

Reading the FAQ of the database, it appears that in order for a product to be deemed compatible, Microsoft considers several aspects such as the product passing the Windows certification requirements and receiving a logo, something which appears to apply to Red Dead Redemption in this case.

Furthermore, reading the partner’s submission page, it mentions that the app can only appear on the list either by a developer submission or by Microsoft testing, and that qualifying submissions will be published in the Windows Compatibility Center,” all of which apply to the game here.

Back in July of last year, Rockstar was hiring a graphics programmer to bring its latest titles to the PC platform, despite the official word from Take-Two and Rockstar since the game’s release being that neither of them have any plans for a PC version.

Thanks, CVG.

    I believe you can submit anything to them and they will basically let anything through, I believe it’s a fake submitted by some random user.

    I believe it when I see it. That game with proper optimization and mods would be a dream on PC.

    I’d rather they make a new red dead. But a PC port wouldn’t hurt either, it would give me a reason for a 4th replay, with 60 fps and nice gfx.

    How many years after the fact?

    Why should we care, or shell out for it for that matter? It seems to be the trend of the companies these days. Deny the PC market a timely release of games until they need a secondary money stream from their old products.

    If I want it I’ll pirate it… Give us timely releases of new games and I’ll pay, other than that… Fuck off.

    That being said, I have no interest in this anyway.

    Amazing game. Its a shame if somebody has missed this 3-year old piece of art. Euphoria engine is the best ragdoll engine in the world :)

    @undermyrules except that if 1080P is “full” what do I call the 7680×1440 res I play at then? You’ve wrongfully assumed that I don’t play PC games for some weird reason.

    @spoffle thats 8k res like i said you have lot to learn

    fullhd= 1920×1080=1k
    2k= 2560 × 1440
    4k= 3840 × 2160=UHD=ultrahd

    Quick correction:
    ullhd= 1920×1080=1k //Nope, that is 2K
    2k= 2560 × 1440 //That’s 2,5K
    4k= 3840 × 2160=UHD=ultrahd
    8k=7680×4320=UHDx2 //The difference is actually 4 times (8.3 Mpx vs 33.1 Mpx)

    @undermyrules no, no I don’t. He never said “full HD” he just said “full 1080P” as if there is another 1080P that isn’t full, it’s also amusing that you’re insisting I need to learn, then go on to get all the resolutions wrong. How awkward for you.

    1080P isn’t 1K,it’s 1080P.

    2K is 2048×1080
    2560×1440 is QHD
    3840X2160 is UHD
    4096×2160 is 4K
    7680×4320 is UHD-2
    8192×4320 is 8K

    Why don’t you educate yourself before making assinine assumptions and telling people they need to learn more?

    Of course it’s fake people, no one saw my link? It’s a link for the same site, wich lists fucking Pocahontas for GameBoy as compatible with 8.1

    @deathm00n ]

    OMG so could Pocahontas for Gameboy finally be seeing a Windows port?
    Been wanting to play that game at 60fps 1080p for ages!

    @undermyrules It’s adorable that you’re so unsure of what you’re talking about, that you’re calling others out on what they’re saying.

    Why don’t you look it up? Also why don’t you look up 4096×2160 monitors, as you have CLEARLY not even bothered, being so sure of yourself that you think you don’t need to. There ARE 4096×2160 monitors and these are 4K as 4K is in reference to 4 thousand horizontal pixels. 3840×2160 ISN’T 4K because 3840 isn’t 4000.

    4096×2160 also isn’t a professional camera resolution, it is a resolution used in cinemas that use 4K projectors, and is twice that of 2K. 3840×2160 is close to 4K, but it’s not 4K, it’s UHD. The same way that 1920×1080 (FHD) is close to 2K (2048×1080) but isn’t classed as it.
