Fans of "Red Dead Redemption," an open-world western action-adventure game, have been eagerly awaiting for the new installment to the franchise since its release in 2010. It has been confirmed that the sequel, "Red Dead Redemption 2" will be a console game, but PC players continue to hope that the game will finally make it to the Windows platform.

After much anticipation of the next installment, Rockstar confirmed the release of "Red Redemption 2" in Fall 2017. Rockstar officially announced that the upcoming game will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One. Notably, there was no mention of a PC version.

With the speculations that the sequel to the company's 2010 blockbuster hit won't be making its way to the PC, a lot of gamers have pleaded that Rockstar will consider doing otherwise. One PC gamer even instigated a request pleading both Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games to release the title on the said platform. The petition even reminded the developers on how they were deprived of playing the first game and asked them not to do the same with "Red Dead Redemption 2."

Recent rumors have it that PC players will finally be able to get the chance to play "Red Dead Redemption 2" onto their preferred platform as PC Advisor claimed to have found hints of such in Gamestop. Upon checking, however, it seems that the upcoming title will still be playable on both of Sony and Microsoft's turf. PC comrades will just have to wait for an official statement from Rockstar regarding that concern.

Meanwhile, an image posted on NeoGaf made fans speculate that it could be a map of "Red Dead Redemption 2's" game world. The image seemed to depict a large area featuring the Gear Plains, home to Blackwater, where the first Red Dead game was situated. It also illustrated islands dotted around the outskirts of the mainland, which may indicate that the player will either be able to swim or take a boat to new locations.

However, it is better to take the rumors with an inch of salt for now as there is no official statement from Rockstar with regards to the matter yet. In the meantime, stay tuned here on GamenGuide for more "Red Dead Redemption 2" updates.
