Xbox boss Phil Spencer is among those showering praise for Rockstar’s new release, Red Dead Redemption 2. Posting on Twitter, Spencer said he wants everyone to play the new game, whether that be on Xbox or PlayStation. He also mentioned PC, but, while the game is rumoured to launch for computers, Rockstar hasn’t made any official announcements yet.
Spencer’s comments came in response to his retweet of a story that boasted that the Xbox One X version of Red Dead Redemption 2 looks better than the PS4 Pro edition. “Of course I’m a bit biased … but honestly most important is just to play RDR2. Play it on a [PS4 Pro], play it on an [Xbox One S], play it on PC. Of course I’m proud of how [Xbox One X] performs, but the game quality is the true commitment here.”
Of course I’m a bit biased….but honestly most important is just play RDR2. Play it on a Pro, play it on an S, play it on PC. I just RT’d their headline, it autofills from their site. Of course I’m proud of how X performs but the game quality is the true accomplishment here.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on October 26 for PS4 and Xbox One. It was a massive success right away, generating $725 million in revenue over its first three days.
There have been rumours and hints about a PC edition coming later, but as of yet Rockstar has made no official announcements. Red Dead Redemption 1 was never released on PC, but Rockstar’s previous game, Grand Theft Auto V, did eventually come to PC.
