Red Dead Redemption 2 Is Crashing For Players On PC

Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the biggest releases of 2018; a game that was universally praised for its depth of story and engrossing world. The game won award after award, and was was so detailed, in fact, that it was practically begging to be played at the kinds of high settings only PCs can achieve. The problem was, the game released only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That all changed today with the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. But the launch has not been without its issues.


The game coming to PC was only a matter of time, but many players are only being rewarded for their patience... with having to be more patient. Reports of crashes are rampant throughout the community, with players loading the game up, only to have the launcher crash when they click "Play." There are few things worse than buying a new game, and then not being able to play it for some reason. The experience is even more frustrating when the reason you can't play is something technical that's out of your control.

Luckily, Rockstar is aware of the problem and is being actively updating players on its support page as it tries to fix the issue.  The company is encouraging players to submit support tickets, and is advising any users who are experiencing these crashes to run the game as an administrator. Players are having mixed results with this method, but hopefully, the support tickets will let Rockstar nail down the issue and get it fixed soon.


It's a shame, because there are a host of great mods waiting for players should they finally get to play Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. Should we learn more about Rockstar's progress in fixing whatever issues are plaguing the Red Dead 2 PC port, we'll let you know.
