Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Specs: Recommended and Minimum Settings

Thanks to a listing on the Rockstar Games Launcher, we have an idea as to the PC Specs for Red Dead Redemption 2. Here are the Minimum and Recommended settings.

We all knew that Red Dead Redemption 2 would come to PC eventually, it was always a question of when. There’s also the question of PC Specs required, given that RDR2 is both vast and incredibly detailed. Thanks to a leak on the Rockstar Games Launcher, we now have an idea as to the setup you’ll need to have in order to run the game. We’ve collected the recommended and minimum settings on this page, so be sure to take a look.

Rockstar has stated that it would be revealing them officially on October 9, but for now these seem like good specs to go on. Continue onwards for the recommended and minimum PC Specs.

Red Dead 2 PC File Size
