Rockstar Apologizes for Red Dead Redemption 2’s Poor PC Launch

Red Dead Redemption 2 was released on PC on November 5. However, the launch was quite rough and with a lot of problems. Many players weren’t able to launch the game at all. Now, it seems the issues are being solved, and Rockstar decided to apologize for the inconvenience that their fans encountered at launch.

In a post on Rockstar’s official website, it is said that most of the issues are identified and fixed, but that the team is aware that there is a small number of players who are still experiencing some problems with the game.

Rockstar believes that this happens due to “unforeseen issues related to specific combinations of Nvidia graphics drivers, Nvidia GPU cards and certain CPUs.”

An update was released yesterday that was supposed to fix some of the issues. But this update won't be enough.

However, we are still currently working together with Nvidia to completely resolve the stuttering issue in a future update, and it may take us up to a few days to properly test everything and ensure the next update completely solves the problem,” Rockstar stated.

Rockstar offered its sincere apology and expressed hope that everyone is going to be able to experience Red Dead Redemption 2 the team wanted them to as soon as possible.

As a token of gratitude, Rockstar will give a complimentary care package for Red Dead Online that includes the Prieto Poncho and an assortment of provisions and ammo to those players who play the game on PC this week and through to the holiday season.
