The reveal of Red Dead Redemption 2 got quite the reaction from gamers around the world today, but not all of them were happy with the platform of choice for the much-anticipated sequel.
Rockstar made no mention of a Fall 2017 release on the PC platform, with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version already set in stone. Obviously, this didn’t go down well with PC users and already someone has created a petition to bring it to the platform.
The petition can be found on Change.org, so if you feel wronged by Rockstar’s decision to boycott the platform, hit the link and sign.
“Because Red Dead Redemption is an amazing game and we PC players have been denied from playing it. Please don’t do the same with Red Dead Redemption 2,” the petition reads.
Over 3,000 signatures have been amassed already, with many more ready to lend their support over the coming days. If Rockstar takes notice is yet to be seen, but we know from the past that if they’re enough interest things can change pretty fast.
The release of Red Dead Redemption in 2010 only saw a release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox One, making those who missed out then feel even more done by today.
With Grand Theft Auto 5 taking nearly two years to make it to PC, we wouldn’t hold our breath on Red Dead Redemption 2 launching anytime soon.
Twitter reacted to the news:
"Red Dead Redemption 2 coming out November 2017 for PS4 and Xbox One" I'm fucking calling it, they'll fuck PC players off as usual.
