Take-Two is being evasive about Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC

As Take-Two points out in its report, Red Dead Redemption 2 has received numerous flawless, or near-perfect review scores from many games media outlets, including the likes of IGN, GameSpot, and Game Informer.

According to a recent investor call, it won't be too long before we're all plunged into such chaotic, six-shooter warfare, as it has been stated by Take 2 CEO Strauss Zelnick that Red Dead online is expected to begin its beta-testing period at the end of November. Obviously, that isn't as specific as we'd all like, but it does narrow things down a bit nonetheless.

This development may come as a surprise, as Read Dead Redemption 2 saw the single largest opening weekend in entertainment history; the title actually beat out Black Ops 4's $500 million revenue in retail sell-through during its first three days, weighing in at over $725 million.

"Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players", the announcement states. Set in the RDR2 game world, it's described as an evolution of the original game's multiplayer experience.

It's perhaps worth pointing out that murdering suffragettes in Red Dead Redemption 2 actually lowers your Honor rating, while attacking members of the Ku Klux Klan improves it, so there's definitely a message that Rockstar wants to get across. Specifically, the studio says it expects turbulence at launch, and to work with the community to overcome "teething problems" and develop Red Dead Online over time.
