Rockstar Games apologizes
for the rocky launch of the Windows edition of
Red Dead Redemption 2
. They announce the release of a new patch for the wild
west shooter and promise to soon reward players with a free care package for Red
Dead Online that includes a poncho:
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:
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.
