This latest confirmation doesn’t come off as a major surprise given that most studios over last couple of months have marketed the ray tracing as the next step towards improving graphics. As a result, Rockstar wouldn’t leave out the information to gamers as a selling point.
Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC comes out November 5th. Although the game came out for console over a year ago, Rockstar decided to bring the title to PC unlike the first installment in the series which remains to be console exclusive.
