In June 2018 profile anonymous developer Rockstar Leeds on LinkedIn found the place where it was said that he worked on Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC. When the news picked up by the media, the employee removed the reference to the version for computers. Today found another similar lead.
On LinkedIn Reddit user made a screenshot of the page Nan MA (Nan Ma) is a former physics programmer at Rockstar Games Toronto, who has been with the company for more than six years: from June 2010 to October 2016. His profile says that he worked on RDR2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
After leaving Rockstar , he founded VR-Studio Immersive Future, where he is CEO. Like last time, to independently verify information about the computer RDR2 anymore – Nan MA has deleted this entry. However, the story had to pick up Western gaming sites (apparently, the first was a PC Gamer).
LinkedIn is a professional social network designed to accommodate summary, therefore, the deliberate spread of fakes it’s extremely inappropriate. In addition, the hint of the development of the PC version of Western in October last year, found even in the official mobile game app.
Who knows, maybe Rockstar wants to repeat the course with Grand Theft Auto V, which originally came out on consoles last generation at the end of their life cycle, and the PC version appeared only a year and a half after the game’s release on current-gen consoles. If so, then RDR2 on the most popular platform we will see, probably until April 2020.
