The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released in November. Rockstar Games announced this first on Twitter and then on the official homepage. The date for the PC release is a fact that fans have long been hoping for. In any case, it is now official: Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will be released on November 5th, but the release is a bit complicated. 


The journey to a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 has now resembled an odyssey: the measures taken by fans ranged from urgent demands to collections of signatures to motivate Rockstar Games to bring the Western epic to PC screens. After Rockstar Games published its in-house launcher, it was clear to industry experts: There is probably a secret plan behind it.
 
That the release of the launcher would likely be related to the release of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2, an assumption that has now been confirmed. Rockstar Games itself has dated the date for the PC release on November 5th.
