After plenty of anticipation, Rockstar Games finally confirmed “Red Dead Redemption 2” via a simple trailer, which confirmed the title would make its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. However, fans of the franchise have been loudly clamoring for PC and Nintendo Switch compatibility -- which might just become a reality.

The original game was not available on Windows. However, there is an ongoing petition (viewable here) from Change.org that is requesting the same for the upcoming title. “Because ‘Red Dead Redemption’ is an amazing game and we PC players have been denied from playing it,” the description read. “Please don't do the same with ‘Red Dead Redemption 2.’”

Currently, there are over 43 thousand signatures on the petition, which might just be enough for Rockstar Games to take a look into the possibility. However, there is something else that the game developer can look into that would work in favour of PC players -- its success in the market from “Grand Theft Auto 5.”

Forbes reported last year that “Grand Theft Auto 5” sold 2 million copies on the PC within the month of its release, which is not to be taken for granted. The sales were definitely not as spectacular as they were on consoles -- which sold 11.2 million copies within the first 24 hours -- but were significantly impressive for the PC space.

However, MobiPicker pointed out that “Grand Theft Auto” is arguably a much more established and more popular franchise than RDR and likely has more momentum than “Red Dead Redemption 2” as well. The PC sales would, theoretically, be less this time around. Furthermore, port cost is definitely not something that Rockstar Games will and can ignore -- and there are fans also clamoring for a Nintendo Switch port.

The game developer has not made any official announcements regarding the consoles and platforms that will carry “Red Dead Redemption 2” other than PS and Xbox One. The game is expected to release sometime in late 2017.
