Rockstar apologises for Red Dead Redemption 2's rocky PC launch

Developer and publisher Rockstar has apologised for Red Dead Redemption 2's less-than-stellar PC launch. 

In a statement via Rockstar Newswire, the company claimed to have been working at a fast pace to fix the issues the game saw at launch.

“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,” said the company.

“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.

The statement continued: “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.”

By way of an apology, the publisher is offering complimentary car packages - being handed out from now through the holiday season - to all who play Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. People will receive the Prieto Poncho, provisions and ammo,

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on PC on November 5th. Since the less than impressive launch, Rockstar released an update for its games launcher. PC users complained that they were being booted out of the game, or not being able to start the launcher to begin with.
