I emailed the Windows Compatibility Centre via the Partner Submission portal yesterday. I asked if Red Dead Redemption was an actual program officially submitted by Rockstar Games or Microsoft. I also asked if its possible to submit an app under a company you have no affiliation with like the Super Mario Bros. X game. I asked them to verify Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar before emailing me back.

This is the response I received this morning:

"My apologies for the mistake.
I have removed this game from the catalog and should possibly get removed from Windows Compatibility Center by 5/13 or latest by 5/14."


That's it. The representative didn't say if it was official or not. Just that's its listing was a mistake.
You should be a journalist

A predictable outcome... still, glad this little affair is over. Better than getting one's hopes up over nothing...

On one hand, I already finished RDR on PS3. It had amazing atmosphere and world, decent characters and story, fun but somewhat repetitive gameplay. The image quality and framerate were atrocious (I mean, it was playable, but..). I would love to see how it would look on my PC. But I don't think they will release this, it has been too long.
Now GTA5, I fully expect that to be out later this year or early next year on PC/PS4/Xbone. Take 2 would be insane not to do that.
