What are the chances of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC?

The gameplay mechanics look tight and it appears that you can hunt, fight, shoot, and play games with folks all around the game world. Rockstar Games is setting the bar for video game visuals with this release, and one of the first things that jumps out is that they managed to finally nail something video games have struggled with since their inception - facial animations. It's been eight years since the first game came out, and you can bet that Rockstar has used that time to ideal Red Dead Redemption 2. Sure, all the trailers were created using in-engine footage, but they give little hint as to how the game will actually play. We see prompts for Greet, Defuse, Antagonize, Threaten, Dismiss, Beat, Rob, and Choke, among others.

Rockstar has just dropped the first gameplay trailer for Read Dead Redemption 2, giving fans a chance to see the highly-anticipated title in action.

It's level of hype surrounding Red Dead Redemption 2 is kind of incredible, considering just how little we've actually seen of the game. John Marston, the protagonist of the previous games, is set to make an appearance. And yes, it's one of those voice over trailer that Rockstar love.

Rockstar said [via GameSpot]: "After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee". What's interesting is the morality system that the game appears to be shooting for, as you're in control of how honourable Arthur can be. The next gameplay video will show off the game's various activities, such as missions, hunting and side quests. That's changed, with the first gameplay trailer out...well, out right now.
