    Prepare for lots of Multiplayer DLC and none for Singleplayer.

    Great news, I'll probably get it on steam, but not sure if at launch, or sometimes next year. It depends a lot on how well the game is optimized. If it's like GTA V, then I'll probably get it straight away. If it needs more beef to run, I'll wait until I upgrade sometime next year.

    I love western movies, so this, I will likely enjoy quite a bit. The slow gameplay does not bother me one bit.

    I can see the sarcasm in that since their launcher works just fine.

    This will be a new smash hit from Rockstar. :)

    After shipping 23 million copies on consoles in just 100 days, the console version of Red Dead Redemption 2 plateaued at 25 million in August.
    That puts the game well behind the astronomical sales pace of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V, which sold 29 million units in 72 days back in 2013.
    That game went on to approach 110 million total sales as of May 2019, with 15 million of those sales coming in the 12 months following May 2018.

    I thought RDR2 sucked. I gave it 5 hours. The game just isn't very fun. I hope the controls get improved for k&b, that would be something.

    It is not just controls. The whole bounty system, crime reporting and reputation system are total trash. Spawning of witnesses and lawmen out of nowhere. You being wanted for defending yourself if other NPCs start shooting at you. Lawmen shooting at you for no reason or for <5 dollars bounty. Or AI bugs where you just walk the street and NPCs start accusing you for following them and starting shooting at you. Crippled minigames, especially poker, where you meet NPC that will never loose a hand. Not being able to sell weapons you looted etc... so many bugs and misguided designs.

    There are few interesting side quests, like He's British Of Course or Magnifico, but there is so few of them.

    So I guess the original won't be coming to pc....

    "Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will also be available to pre-order at the Epic Games store, Greenman Gaming, the Humble Store, GameStop and additional digital retailers starting October 23rd"

    Will I be able to get it on Steam? I hope that's what additional digital retails means.

    It looked amazing on Xbox One X, PC, probably even more so.

    I agree. Very sporadic and inconsistent. I could never get passed the controls. The story never grabbed me. The missions seemed pointless and forced. I keep reading "6 hours in and the game gets awesome". No game should take that long to get good. That's like saying a movie gets really good 2 hours in. Visually it's probably one of the nicest games I've played. Just ...too much of a chore to actually play. I hope PC can fix some of the issues.

    How exactly did they throw money at them? It's coming out on several stores, including their own launcher.
    It's likely that Rockstar knew Steam would gobble up the majority of sales and decided to use other cheaper stores for first day sales.

    I am just assuming based on many multiple past events from this year relating to exclusivity regarding epic launcher, my guess is if the time period is indeed a one month delay this is due to Rockstar knowing fully the amount of potential customers sitting on Steam, so they have not gone for a 1 year exclusivity deal that epic usually forces publishers into.

    1 month exclusivity isn't a big deal. You can buy it on your chosen platform in December and still play during holidays. I'd be more annoyed if it was until next year.

    After dealing with Epic Games Store's crap the entire year, a one month delay before launching on Steam is great news. I honestly thought it wasn't coming to Steam at all.
