Specifically, it’s designed to help players with AMD processors.
“In our continued effort to fix ongoing issues with the Rockstar Games Launcher, we have just released an update designed to address ‘unexpectedly exited’ errors for some players with AMD processors,” Rockstar tweeted. “Please restart the launcher to apply the update.”
Rockstar Games Launcher update Nov 8
- Improvements to address issues causing the Rockstar Games Launcher to exit unexpectedly for some players with AMD processors
However, as with past efforts to fix the issues the latest attempt appears to have had mixed results.
Some users are reporting finally being able to play the game, others no improvement, while more say the update has actually stopped the title working for them.
“I didn’t have any problems with the game until today, after this ‘Fix’ I’ve had game close on me twice and several crashes with error codes,” one user tweeted. “I can see here that I am not the only one who’s faced these problems after this ‘fix’.”
And some users who are able to play the game claim it’s hamstrung by technical problems.
One wrote: “Can you please try to focus on the GAME now? Read Dead 2 on PC is in a bad state. Graphical errors everywhere, horrible optimization and stutters constantly! Please tell us AT LEAST that you’re working on it. The customer relations isn’t going great here.”
Another said: “This is a damn JOKE! Its not even like if you can get the game to launch, you’re good… There are visual glitches, performance issues, and HORRIBLE audio bugs to deal with. This is just BAD on a scale ive never seen before!”
It’s unclear exactly how widespread the various issues with Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC are as aside from Twitter support updates, Rockstar has remained largely silent on the issue to date.
What is clear is that Rockstar still has plenty of work to do to get the product in a suitable state and many exasperated players back on side.
