    Red Dead Redemption is no doubt one of the greatest games of all time. Sadly, it never released on PC. Even running it on PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 still has a lot of issues. It remains one of those games that PC gamers envy our console brethren for. There have been rumors for many years that Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive would finally port it to the PC, but that’s all we’ve had — rumors. According to a Kotaku article from 2011, we shouldn’t ever expect a PC release, and Take-Two’s statement seemed final at the time. However, last month we saw the trailer below, which showcases a remake mod of the 2010 classic.

    The modder behind it is called DamnedDev or GamingDamned, and he announced the remake on GTAForums.com last month. The announcement was a way for the modder to recruit others who could help to remake and remaster the game. The remake would still require that players own a legit copy of Red Dead Redemption – more specifically, the PlayStation 3 version.

    Unfortunately, late last week, he made a new announcement on the forum: “The Project is halted completely. If you can catch my drift what happened. I will make an update video explaining what happened and such.” In subsequent comments, he explained that he received a call from Take-Two demanding that he halt development. He is now working on an update video to explain what happened.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC?

    In May and July, we reported on a possible port of Red Dead Redemption 2, which neither Take-Two Interactive or Rockstar Games have confirmed. We still don’t know whether the sequel will find its way to the PC platform. It could still be a console exclusive like the original title. We would certainly love to have both the original and the sequel on PC. However, that is entirely up to Take-Two and Rockstar. Only time will tell whether we will ever get to play these games on PC.

I backed the System Shock remake and Underworld Ascendant on Kickstarter, and I really regret the latter but hope the former will turn out okay.
