Of course Red Dead Redemption 2 was going to be successful (despite all of the stories about its human cost). But some code in the game's companion app, as first reported by RockstarIntel, has references to a PC version.

Questions remain for Packers after near-upset of Rams
Gurley went down in the field of play instead of scoring a touchdown so that the Rams could kneel out the clock on a 29-27 win. They've been up and down so far this season, and they will need to be more up than down this week to come out with a victory.


But here's the funniest part of all of this: selling the game isn't the big part of where Rockstar will make its money on Red Dead Redemption 2.
