When you’re striking directly to the hope that Purple Lifeless Redemption 2 is coming to PC this yr or early in 2019, please give that up. Rockstar Video games is launching its Western sequel for PlayStation four and Xbox One on October 26, nevertheless it hasn’t mentioned the rest a couple of model for Home windows. That’s disappointing — particularly after the brand new trailer dropped these days and gave us a primary take a look at some 4K gameplay on a PlayStation four Professional.
So what’s going on right here? Is that this a repeat of the unique Purple Lifeless Redemption? That recreation by no means got here to PC, and it appears adore it by no means will. In terms of Rockstar, the similar factor may finally end up taking place to Purple Lifeless Redemption 2. This can be a studio that doesn’t must do the rest simply because it is sensible. Grand Robbery Auto V is the 3rd recreation to surpass 100 million copies bought within the historical past of this trade, so this isn’t an organization that has to respond to to any person.
What’s much more likely, then again, is that Rockstar is doing a repeat of Grand Robbery Auto V as an alternative. That recreation debuted in 2013, and as its gross sales numbers recommend, it has bought smartly ever since. In the ones first 3 years, then again, Rockstar used to be ready to offer it a few gross sales boosts with new releases.
It hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation three in September 2013. A yr later, in November 2014, Rockstar introduced it on Xbox One and PlayStation four. In the end, it hit PC in April of 2015. The ones ports clearly divulge the sport to new audiences, however GTAV gave the impression to get pleasure from other folks purchasing the sport once more on extra robust consoles, after which possibly purchasing it a 3rd time to get the awesome PC model that helps mods.
With Purple Lifeless Redemption 2, Rockstar may do one thing identical. It’s launching on Xbox One and PlayStation four in October, after which possibly it involves PC past due in 2019. After which, if we get new consoles in 2020 or 2021, Rockstar can probably free up an replace model for the ones programs as smartly (even though I be expecting backward compatibility may prohibit repeat purchases for the ones units).
One very last thing. If Purple Lifeless Redemption 2 does come to PC subsequent yr, do you assume it’s going to finally end up on Steam? Or does Rockstar and guardian corporate Take-Two Interactive pull a Fallout 76 and transfer to their very own launcher the place they now not must percentage income with Valve? My wager is that we’re the use of the Rockstar Launcher for Purple Lifeless on PC by way of the top of 2019.
