MMO's aren't my favorite but I did play WoW for years and before that, City of Heroes and even Everquest. As far back as EQ I was making comments that someone should do a Western. Now I have to hope it's more "Lonesome Dove" and less spaghetti western.

Not only is Red Dead Redemption 2 coming for PC this time (and one suspects a port from XBox360 should be in the work for the excellent first game), but strong rumor is that Ubisoft intends to compete with their next Far Cry -- which would be very reasonable.

I reckon I'll have to wait and see what my options are.  :cowboy:

This sounds like a griefer's paradise. Grab a rifle, and shoot anything that moves.

Too early to tell, however the article mentions a reputation system and how that would affect PC's. If it's Day Z set in the west, then I'm not interested. If however there is some legitimate tie-in with a character's actions and reputation, that could be workable.

I really have no idea why rockstar never ported RDR to PC over Bully. I never finished it but it is an awesome game and visually astounding.
Insert witty comment here.

Hope it's Elite Dangersous set in the wild west.

I finished (on PS3) and its quality continues through. (Also, albeit in some different ways, through the alternate ending zombie DLC campaign.)

Ditto -- never understood why they wouldn't bother. The code for the XB360 couldn't have been THAT much different from Windows, could it?  :-\ Must have been a licensing agreement.

But Bayonetta at last came to PC, in these latter days, so perhaps there is hope for other properties not intrinsically tied to only one platform. With RDR2 (which ought to be 0, I guess, since it's a prequel and not about foiling a Mexican attempt at invading the southern states during World War 1, which would have been unspeakably awesome, sigh) coming to PC out of the gate, Rockstar would be simply leaving money on the table not to issue a preliminary or parallel port now.

Jason, where did you see that RDR2 will be released for the PC? Their website only shows PS4 and Xbox One for preorder.

.... ??? Well, I sure thought I saw it mentioned as PC. Maybe not immediately, consoles first? I'll look around.

Okay, originally it was promoted as being released for the PC, but either that was dropped or a misunderstanding or something. Confirmed not for PC.

Since I don't own a current-gen console, and it won't be out for the PS3, I'll be neverminding I guess.
