Since it was first release, PC gamers have been begging Rockstar Games to release Western adventure Red Dead Redemption, and while it seemed unlikely for a while, there’s reason to believe that the game’s sequel will in fact see an official PC release.

Set in the declining years of The Old West, Red Dead Redemption itself was a sequel to 2004’s Red Dead Revolver, and centred on John Marston, a former outlaw whose wife and son had been taken hostage by the American government in an effort to force Marston into working for them to bring three former members of his gang to justice.

The game was widely loved by gamers, it was loathed by moral watchdogs for its adult content – but shockingly, despite apparently having been made for the traditionally less morally uptight PC gamer market, the game never saw an official PC release.

Now, an image posted to a Red Dead Redemption Reddit group seems to confirm that the sequel will be seeing a PC release. The photo shows a resume listing for a programmer at Rockstar Games, who lists previous work as including Red Dead Redemption 2 for “PS4, Xbox 1 and PC.”

While this isn’t anything close to an official statement from Rockstar, or a PC port of the game, hopeful gamers have seen this a sign that a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 is at least in the works. Another encouraging sign for fans was that within hours of this being posted on Reddit, the original resume was edited to remove any reference to a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Unfortunately, this being a typo seems more likely than Rockstar going so far out of their way to hide a PC port, after them being so forthcoming with information on console versions of the game.

Keep you fingers crossed PC gamers – it could still happen!
