New Red Dead Redemption release 'accidentally' leaked early

New Red Dead Redemption release 'accidentally' leaked early

It's bad news for fans of the original

Despite a recent discovery hinting at a possible Red Dead Redemption PC port coming soon, it seems we may have got a bit ahead of ourselves.

Earlier this month, a datamine leak from Rockstar Game’s launcher site showed that after long last, a PC port for Red Dead Redemption may finally be on the cards.

With the game first being released way back in 2010 for console, it is way overdue for the PC treatment and this leaked information got fans hyped to say the least.

However, according to recent comments by Rockstar Games expert Tez2, we may be expected to wait even longer as the datamined information was “accidentally” leaked too early.

According to a comment made in the GTA Forum, Tez2 said: “At this point, the unintended push wasn't meant for an announcement but was likely a result of whatever Rockstar is cooking for the launcher with the new branch.

They shifted to this branch about a month and a half ago, and the May 14th launcher update was the first one based on this branch. The strings appeared the day prior, so the timing is rather convenient. The scenario behind this seems to be just a simple case of them moving stuff from the old branch to the new one and then pushing it into the public branch.”

In other words, the PC port for Red Dead Redemption 2 was pushed too early and the process may not be as complete as the datamined information first showed.

This is sad news for fans of the original game after having already waited over 10-years for it to arrive on PC. However, at least we know that Rockstar is still working on it in the background.
