RDR2 Companion App Code Includes Reference To PC Version, VR Support

It's been a very long wait, but Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally in the hands of fans all over the world.


With the game now being out on consoles, has Rockstar Games started working on a rumored PC version of the game though? We already know that the final touches are being put on Red Dead Online, which is set to launch later this month, and now it appears that more evidence of an eventual PC release has been found.

Last week, together with the game, the Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App was released for iOS and Android devices. It allows users to check out the map, Arthur's stats, his diary and more.

As usually happens, a inquisitive user has taken a look at the app's underlying code and discovered something very interesting, as reported by Rockstar Intel: a couple of references to a PC version.

Additionally, it seems like there might be a PC version of the Companion App itself, as the code has references to the sign-in features for Android, iOS, and PC.


Although an eventual PC release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost assured, it seems like Rockstar Games may go the extra mile and offer incentives for players to purchase that version even if they've already bought the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One release.

The Companion App also references, as reported by Upload VR, the Oculus VR headset, hinting at possible Virtual Reality support, which would be huge for an already-immersive game like Red Dead Redemption 2.

With the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V also coming with features not found in the original PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases, it's likely that Rockstar Games will add something more to the PC release if it is in fact in development.
