The PC launch for Red Dead Redemption 2 didn’t go over well. On November 5th players reported they couldn’t execute the game’s files and those who did get into the game reported multiple texture and graphical issues. Now, Rockstar has commented on the issue. Offering an apology gift for the problems and stating they’re working on a solution.

Over the past week, we have been working as quickly as possible to address issues that have impacted the launch of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. As a result, we have already identified and resolved a number of these issues by deploying fixes to the Rockstar Games Launcher and some to the game itself.

However, we are aware that a small number of Red Dead Redemption 2 PC players are still experiencing some ongoing problems with the game stuttering. We believe this is due to unforeseen issues related to specific combinations of Nvidia graphics drivers, Nvidia GPU cards and certain CPU’s.

We will be rolling out an update to the game today which will address the stuttering issue alongside a host of other fixes. 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.

We sincerely apologize for this temporary inconvenience and will update you as soon as we have more information to share – we want everyone to be able to experience Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC as we intended as soon as possible. If you are experiencing any issues that are impacting your experience with Red Dead Redemption 2 for any reason, please start by first visiting the troubleshooting page on our Support site for assistance: https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/360037908634/RDR2-on-PC-General-Troubleshooting

And as a show of gratitude to our PC fans while we sort this out in the coming days, everyone who plays Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC this week and through to the holiday season will receive a complimentary care package for Red Dead Online that includes the Prieto Poncho and an assortment of provisions and ammo. Look for more details on the care package to come.

Thanks again for your continued patience and understanding.

Hopefully, this version of the game will be fixed before the holiday season. After all, early adaptors of Red Dead Redemption 2 had to purchase it on Rockstar’s launcher as the Steam version is due out this December.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
