Red Dead Redemption PC compatibility listing surfaces

Microsoft-maintained database indicates long-awaited PC version

A Microsoft PC compatibility listing for Red Dead Redemption indicates the game may be headed to PC, four years after it released on PS3 and Xbox 360.

The Windows Compatibility Center "lists thousands of the most popular apps and devices to help you easily identify what will or won't work with various versions of Windows," according to its FAQ section. Microsoft adds products to the Compatibility Center then lets users vote on their compatibility for multiple versions of Windows.


Neither Rockstar nor Take-Two have made any announcement about bringing the well-received open-world Western title to PC since it was released in May 2010.

We've asked Rockstar to verify the listing, spotted by NeoGAF user Lazaro, and will update this article with any comment.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said in 2013 that the group aimed to make the Red Dead series one of Rockstar's "permanent franchises", suggesting more titles may be on the way.

"Outside of our business you can look at James Bond, for example," Zelnick said. "And it's been our goal not just to preserve and grow the Grand Theft Auto franchise, but also to build other franchises that we think can be permanent, whether that's the Red Dead franchise or the Borderlands franchise or the BioShock franchise or others, Civilization for example."

In February 2012, Take-Two said Red Dead franchise sales had topped 13 million units, including Redemption's standalone add-on Undead Nightmare and PS2 and Xbox release Red Dead Revolver.

Rockstar has also remained tight-lipped on the possibility of a PC version for Grand Theft Auto V.

Rockstar is holding a financial call tomorrow.
