Many seemed disappointed that Red Dead Redemption 2 was only announced for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, however there are still some that believe it will be released on PC eventually.
Famed Webush Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes this will happen as Rockstar Games has a history of releasing games on consoles first and a couple years later on the PC. Stating to Gamingbolt..
‘They key words here are right now. ‘I remember the announcement for GTA5 was Xbox 360 and PS3 only, when it was first announced in November 2011, I think. And then they waited until June of 2014, so literally two and a half years after the first announcement, and announced that it would be on Xbox One and PS4. And then- I forget the month, but I think it was several months later, they announced it for PC, which came out in 2015.
‘So they have a history of bleeding out information about their games, and credit to them, it works. It keeps fans interested in their games. This announcement, for instance, coming the week Battlefield is launching, and then the trailer coming the week before Titanfall 2 launches… I think they’ll have another trailer around when Call of Duty launches, because they want to dominate the headlines. They are brilliant marketers, and they’re right. Here we are, you know talking about Red Dead Redemption 2, which is coming out in a year, and not talking about all the games that are coming out this week. So, they’re smart. They’ve diverted the conversation to them. That’s almost Trump-like- stay in front of the news cycle, and it works.’
