Eleven months after its release on Xbox 360 and PS3, GTA V reached the respective successor to each console with a graphically improved version. Less than half a year later, I would do so on PC with which today is the most vitaminated option of all. In an interval of fifteen months, the game was planted in two generations of consoles and also in the world of the PC, and if you ask me to me I would say that this is the main reason why it has sold 110 million units. In addition to the obvious: its quality.
With Red Dead Redemption 2
However, things look different. After seven months in the market, we still have no concrete news regarding the arrival of the next generation, so reproducing the same GTA V strategy seems difficult. This points to being much more spaced in time. In any case, what could be done is for the PC release to become the intermediate release, leaving as close the arrival to PS5 and Xbox Scarlett in 2019. If so, wouldn’t you be playing an ad?
It just so happens that there is only one month left for the E3, and although Rockstar is not very showering about handing out new ads to other companies or events, it would not be possible to rule out the arrival of a trailer for the Red Dead Redemption 2 version for PC. It could fall even outside the Fair, on nearby dates and through the official channel. His thing is that this comes to us during the last third of the year, so that we don’t get too close to the next release in the next generation, and that’s how it’s time to start moving.
Advancing the launch on PC makes more sense than it seems, not only because of timing issues. Despite being a bestseller, it must be recognized that Red Dead Online is not working as well as expected, first because of its premiere full of bugs and second because it is also a bit more of the same. Rekindling the West flame with a jump to the compatible can greatly improve the image that this multiplayer has right now, not to say that he would obviously kill it in sales.
On the other side of the coin we have a more terrible reality: that we repeat what we saw in the original Dead Redemption Network. It is a game that has only reached new generations through retrocompatibility, and is still absent in the PC world today. Could the Play be repeated? I don’t think so, but in Rockstar they’re very much yours, and we have no reason to dismiss that move either. In any case, it would be useful to be prepared for future announcements on Red Dead Redemption 2; These are suitable dates for such announcements.
