Red Dead Redemption 2 launched for PC on Tuesday, but many players encountered a crash error with the message “Red Dead Redemption 2 exited unexpectedly.”

Rockstar also recommended disabling anti-virus software, updating the Rockstar Launcher and clearing local profile details.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on Stadia when the cloud gaming platform launches on November 19, while the PC version will be available on Steam in December.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has shipped over 25 million units worldwide since its PS4 and Xbox One release in October 2018, according to publisher Take-Two.
