Red Dead Redemption 2 PC, Nintendo Switch Release Reportedly Confirmed

By on

When games take a turn for science fiction and World Wars, it’s about time we go Western. Red Dead Redemption 2 will do just that, but what exactly do we know about the game?

Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to point towards an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launch after its momentous launch a few weeks ago. However, fans are still expecting a PC iteration and possibly a Nintendo Switch carry-over soon enough.

The magnificent reveal of Nintendo’s newest console and its third-party support meant possibilities are almost endless for game compatibilities. This might seem why the hype for a Nintendo Switch iteration is so well-requested.

However, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter seems to believe the Nintendo iteration may never be met. Speaking with GamingBolt, chances for a port to the Nintendo Switch are “poor.”

He said this is because the last iteration of a game that scales on a Nintendo device was GTA for the Nintendo DS back in 2009. Nintendo’s penchance to move away from the mainstream makes it a bit near-impossible to feature extremely popular action titles in its newest console.

Of course, this is still based on rumor. And given Nintendo Switch’s immense reception, the odds of a Red Dead Redemption 2 port may get higher.

While a Nintendo port may seem dismal, fans can still get a Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PC. That is if everything goes as Pachter had predicted.

Red Dead Redemption already had a successful release given its action-packed Western formatting. It also had a compelling and engaging storyline that follows a man’s quest to save his family. If sidequests and free-roaming permitted, of course.

According to Express, it may take time for Red Dead Redemption 2 to have other ports. It’s contemporary, Grand Theft Auto 5, initially had an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 launch back in 2011. It was only by 2014 that the game had a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One port.

The PC port, and even possibly a Nintendo Switch port, may simply have to wait.

Meanwhile, the current trailer teases a return to the Western roots of the Red Dead Redemption game. The arrival of much more improved technology (barely, anyway) and steam trains combine for a highly anticipated game the likes of Skyrim.

However, what’s really interesting is the arrival of seven different cowboys by the end of the trailer. No one knows if the so-called “Magnificent Seven” will be allies, or enemies the players have to take down.
