Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC launch didn’t go perfectly smooth. Players had a number of complaints, like having to use yet another publisher-specific launcher to play the game. That was just one of the complaints out of many. If you haven’t already bought the game, though, you won’t have to deal with all of this hassle anymore.
This is because Rockstar has revealed that the game will be available through Steam on December 5th. That means that you can play where most of your existing game library already resides.
Just be aware that this won’t address glitches within Red Dead Redemption itself, but it is a start. It’s also an acknowledgment that the game industry’s attempts to reduce its dependency on Steam (and increase it’s own profit margins) can only go so far. It is what it is and whether game creators like it or not, many gamers really prefer to have all their games in one place.
Gamers want what they want and there’s a risk that developers will miss out on sales by insisting on proprietary launchers, even if they make more money with each sale. Anyway, its good news for those who haven’t played the game yet.
