The Wrong Start of Red Dead Redemption 2
Although Rockstar updated its PC launcher, Red Dead Redemption 2 has started its journey with several problems. Before you think the game is cursed due to the developer’s complete negligence of the next GTA game, we have to reinsure you that Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally on track and well-functioning.
This week Red Dead Redemption 2 was launched on the PC platform. Despite a long period of preparations, Rockstar struggled with delay as things have not gone as it was originally planned. Devoted Rockstar fans reported that there were problems with launcher itself: recurring crashes and temporal freezing.
These problems have not disappeared even after graphics drivers were updated and anti-virus software was disabled. The usual remedy has not helped. Rockstar even revealed that they are going to update the game launcher. Yet, this did not help either. Rockstar’s Twitter page was overloaded with numerous complains about the problems that appeared while playing. The article on Troubleshooting that Rockstar has released on its official Twitter page did not help at all.
While the fans calmed down after a while, and Rockstar managed to handle the situation, there are more consequences to come. We are living in a world of opportunities for players, while game developers live in a constant nightmare of their competitors’ success. Rockstar started the launch with a wrong step. Its competitors Ubisoft and EA presented their PC launchers without any significant problems. The struggling that Rockstar experienced has already harmed its reputation. It is only natural for them to double their efforts on fixing any possible gaps before the next month’s launch on Steam. So, we may only wish them luck and no blackouts in the future.
