There has been a big hype after the extremely elusive "Red Dead Redemption 2" has been finally revealed after years of rumors, speculations, and leak attempts. Now, PC gamers are more interested to set foot in its world more than ever.

According to a report by Australian news site, IBTimes, the game "Red Dead Redemption" has been finally confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One alone. Fans who don't have access to these consoles have an option to get the game on the PC, if only it had been included in the platforms supported.

The original "Red Dead Redemption" was never released on the PC and was only available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There had been numerous attempts or requests to bring the game to the PC, but none of these bore any fruition.

However, fans are taking their strong interest to see the game on the PC on a different level this time. There's an online petition to bring "Red Dead Redemption 2" to the PC at change.org. As of the moment, it has 44,122 supporters at the time of the writing and just a few more thousands away from the 50,000 end goal.

One part of the letter says "Because 'Red Dead Redemption' is an amazing game and we PC players have been denied from playing it," the description read. "Please don't do the same with 'Red Dead Redemption 2.'"

As the report cites, there's no assurance even if the petition reached its 50,000 goal, though there's one factor to consider and that's how the PC port of "GTA V" succeeded.

A lot of fans and gamers are aware of how "GTA V" was a big hit on the PC as it got released. In fact, it sold 2 million copies on the PC alone on its first month. Not as impressive with the sales figures on the consoles, but still something to take into consideration.

Hopefully, once the petition reaches the goal, Rockstar will have a say in the matter. Let's have our fingers crossed as we await the official announcement from the publisher of "Red Dead Redemption 2."
