Red Dead Redemption 2 PC release date

Rockstar Games has announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on PC and Google Stadia next month.

The long-rumoured PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on November 5, 2019, Rockstar Games has confirmed.

The game will be available on most PC platforms at launch – including the Epic Games store, Green Man Gaming and the Humble Store – with a Steam release following in December. Special bonuses are also available to customers who pick it up through the recently launched Rockstar Games Launcher.


Pre-purchases made through the Rockstar store between October 9 and October 22 will include access to two free games from the following list:

  • Grand Theft Auto III
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition
  • L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
  • Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition

Pre-purchases also include a free upgrade to the game’s Premium Edition. It’s worth noting that if you download the Rockstar Games Launcher before October 8 you can also grab a copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for free.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will also be a Google Stadia launch title in November.

Rockstar says that the PC edition of the game will feature a range of graphical and technical improvements, as well as new bounty hunting missions, gang hideouts and weapons. Access to Red Dead Online is also included with every content update up to Frontier Pursuits available on day one.

Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC system requirements – and some new screenshots – will be revealed next week.
