Eureka! We’ve had a breakthrough moment with Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, and finally managed to get the game up-and-running on our test bench. Facing a seemingly common issue with the game at launch, the “exited unexpectedly” bug, and after trying every RDR2 fix recommend by Rockstar to no avail, we finally bit the bullet and entirely rebuilt our gaming PC and reinstalled Windows – and now Red Dead Redemption 2 works.

PC players rejoiced when it was announced recently that they would finally be getting Red Dead Redemption 2 in November. To give a taste of just how good the open-world western will look, Rockstar has released a new 4K trailer for the PC version.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC at last, and while it will hit Steam in December, Rockstar will bring it to other digital retailers and its own new launcher a month earlier. And the publisher really, really wants you to purchase it on the Rockstar Launcher. To that end, you’ll get up to $105 USD worth of free games and DLC for pre-ordering through that store.
Red Dead Redemption 2 officially hits PC very soon, and Rockstar aims to give you some reasons to double-dip if you already played on consoles – beyond the graphical and frame rate improvements, that is. You’ll also find a whole bunch of new additions for story mode here, and while none of them are earth-shattering, they’ll all add a bit more variety to your replay following the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC release date.
Red Dead Redemption 2 may have taken a while to saddle up on the PC, but when it does it looks like most PC gamers are going to get a great experience with the game, because the recommended specs have been released and they’re eminently achievable.
Yes, it looks like Red Dead RP is within our grasp. The folks behind FiveM – the wildly popular mod framework that powers most of the big GTA RP servers – have confirmed that they’re working on a similar mod for when Red Dead Redemption 2 hits PC, and if things go according to plan, you won’t have to wait very long to play with it.
Once again, it looks like there’s reason to wonder if a Red Dead Redemption PC port might be on the horizon. There’s been Rockstar Social Club source code, Stadia Rockstar information, and a LinkedIn reference hinting – though far from confirming – that we might one day see the game gallop onto our PCs. Now, there’s a rating application that could also suggest a PC port’s in the works.
As criticism of the game industry’s often abusive labour practices took hold, reported crunch at Rockstar proved to be one of the biggest points of discussion. Things at the QA department, primarily based in Rockstar’s Lincoln studio, seemed especially bad – in addition to mandatory overtime, testers were often employed on temporary contracts with no guarantee of renewal. Now, it seems that things are changing.
