Rockstar’s first true game for this generation has finally launched. Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now, and it looks like it was worth the wait, with reviews hailing it as one of the best games ever made. Which of course, is a given with Rockstar titles. The question, however, is- with this generation likely entering its final years now, can we expect Red Dead Redemption 2 to make the jump to the next generation consoles?
After all, that’s exactly what happened with Grand Theft Auto 5 when it launched on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, and then on PS4 and Xbox One in 2014, with a PC launch following in 2015. Might we see Rockstar take a similar staggered approach to how they deal with Red Dead Redemption 2?
According to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, the answer is yes. Speaking to GamingBolt in an exclusive interview, he said that the PC launch is likely right around the corner, and that the next generation consoles will get the game when they are out.
”PC for sure, most likely by April,” he said. “I’m not sure why they take so long. Next generation consoles are likely as well, whenever those come out.”
Realistically, this isn’t a controversial view to hold (except maybe the PC version launches a bit later than Pachter think it does). But if you don’t want to wait that long, Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One.
