As Rockstar promised, Red Dead Redemption 2 is headed to Steam early next month. The company announced that the open-world action-adventure game will arrive on Steam's storefront on December 5.

Publisher Rockstar Games shared the news on Twitter, confirming that the Rockstar Studios-developed Red Dead Redemption sequel will be on Steam with all the bells and whistles available in the game's recent PC launch. This includes the added story elements, enhanced graphics, and more that Rockstar took the time improving and iterating upon for PC.

Many Red Dead Redemption 2 players have encountered some issues since the game launched for PC on November 5. As the company continues to address these myriad technical problems, Rockstar issued a statement apologizing for the persistent hangups. "We want everyone to be able to experience Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC as we intended as soon as possible," the company said in its statement.

Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC has recently received an update targeting the issues plaguing the game. These include fixes for graphics and performances, stability, the user interface, and more. Still, other players have encountered even stranger issues surrounding framerate.
