The Australian Classification Board has been updated with some amazing news about Red Dead Redemption 2. Unbelievably, the listing (via Reset Era) has been on the site since August 20th but no matter what, it’s HUGE: RDR2 seems to finally be making its way to PC!
RDR2 has been rated for mature 15+ audiences due to “strong violence, strong themes, and online interactivity”. Savvy readers have noticed that the “PC” designation isn’t specifically noted on the rating, however, a quick look at the same ratings for consoles also shows that no mention is made of the specific platform. Rockstar likes to keep platform designations to “consoles” and “PC” much as it did for Grand Theft Auto Online.
Speculation has been active for several months about a PC release of RDR2. The launch of Rockstar’s own PC game launcher fueled the speculation and this listing seems to confirm the PC version for many.
Of course, with all rumors, it’s prudent to keep in mind that this could be misleading information. One site noticed that the classification was sought by a group called the International Age Rating Coalition, not Rockstar. It’s unknown what, if anything, this means for the game’s release on PC.
We’ll keep you posted as the story develops.
