Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-adventure game developed and published by Rockstar Games. The game was officially announced for PC last week, and now the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC System Requirements have been officially revealed.

You can also pre-order the game on the Rockstart Launcher now.

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC System Requirements

To run the game on PC, you’ll need the following specifications


  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit – Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 770 2GB or Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • HDD: 150 GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11


  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit – April 2019 Update (v1803)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • HDD: 150 GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

These are honestly pretty reasonable, and the game sounds like it’s will be very well optimized based on these. The 150 GB requirement doesn’t come with any shock, as the game is 100 GB on consoles anyway.
