Red Dead Redemption 2’s System Requirements Are… Fairly Decent

However, Rockstar‘s new game, Red Dead Redemption 2 will require a lot of space on your HDD or SSD. Let’s jump right into the game’s system requirements:

Red Dead Redemption 2 Minimum Specifications:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 – Service Pack 1 (version 6.1.7601)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K / AMD FX-6300
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 with 2 GB of VRAM / AMD Radeon R9 280 with 3 GB of VRAM
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • HDD Space: 150 GB


Red Dead Redemption 2 Recommended Specifications:

  • Operating System: Windows 10 – April 2018 update (version number 1803)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6 GB VRAM / AMD Radeon RX 480 with 4 GB of VRAM
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • HDD Space: 150 GB


The information above was revealed by Rockstar on the Rockstar Games Launcher’s Store page. In case you have it installed (because it came out with a free Grand Theft Auto San Andreas), you can see it yourself.

The system requirements of the PC port of Red Dead Redemption is mostly decent. It’s relaxing. (At least it doesn’t recommend having 16 GB of RAM like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – we discussed it yesterday.) Except for one thing: 150 GB needed! That’s six dual-layer Blu-ray discs! (And in single-layer DVDs, at least 32…) That is huge! (Then again, Microsoft Flight Simulator will reportedly need 300 GB, and even then, it will use the Azure cloud to stream some data…) Then again, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will require – and we are not joking – 175 GB. Yes, one hundred and seventy-five gigabytes.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on PC on November 5 everywhere except Steam, where it will surface in early December.
