Red Dead Redemption 2 Crashing on PC? You are not Alone!

For those who were excited to explore the open world on Red Dead Redemption 2, it might have to wait a few more patches.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is having quite a bad time on PC. Itā€™s not always a cakewalk for developers to launch the big console titles on PC. Rockstar is currently having a hard time releasing patches and updating settings trying to fix its recently launched game on PC. Rockstar had released an update for its launcher on 6th November but it hasnā€™t been of much help to fix the issues! Rockstar has set up a Q and A page to help users troubleshoot the game on PC. Also read about, Red Dead Redemption 3.

However, the page has lived up to its expectations since a lot of players are still in the dark. Most of these problems seem to be launcher related. Players are complaining about random crashes and an array of similar technical faults on most of the hardware. It has been reported that switching off a pair of cores on the CPU would work as a potential bypass to this problem but that is something only a few players could afford to do since the system will seriously struggle to run the game on the remaining 2 cores (considering the fact that most of you still own a quad-core processor).

Rockstar had released its official game launcher in September this year but it was just a preparation for the legendary arrival of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. While most of the publishers have put up their games for sale on Steam, a few companies are finding a way around paying hefty cut of their earnings to Valve by releasing their own launcher on Windows.

However, keeping in mind the problems being faced by players with this latest release from Rockstar, the multi-store ecosystem that the companies are trying to adapt does come with its set of problems. Rockstar has confirmed that the game will launch on Steam and Google Stadia too. Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC boasts even better graphics when compared to PS4 Pro and Xbox One X and also includes new weapons, hideouts and more.

Red Dead Redemption 2 comes next to GTA V on the list of ā€˜Best Open World Gamesā€™ made by Rockstar. Just like GTA V and GTA IV have been modded for years on end, Red Dead Redemption will also keep the legacy.
