Good news, Steam fans! It turns out that Red Dead Redemption 2 (and its companion element, Red Dead Online, also known as Grand Theft Auto Will Take Its Horse To The Old Town Road) will be arriving on Steam as of December 5th! That means players who prefer having every game under Valve’s unified storefront instead of Epic’s storefront or Rockstar’s own personal storefront can enjoy all the features of the PC port, including:
- No actual bug fixes!
- Crashing when your anti-virus software does its job at all!
- Sub-par performance on most hardware!
- Freezing when you don’t manually alter your processor performance!
- Apology Ponchos when patches don’t fix any of that!
Snark aside, the launch announcement has been met with several comments asking if the game will actually function properly on launch, which is clearly on the minds of several players or potential players. We can only hope that this particular launch does take place smoothly, but given the game’s history up to this point, you could be forgiven for skepticism. It’ll at least be in the slightly more popular storefront to buy, though!
