Don’t worry this is not an error or anything. This will only take 10-20 minutes to complete. I am also angry about the fact that they are making us do this after preloading. Making us wait for 30 minutes, even after the game launch.

The game has just launched on PC and there are way too many people trying to get in. When you start the game for the first time, and it will decrypt the downloaded files. This process will take a while depending on your PC specifications. For me it was stuck for the first time, I tried looking around, didn’t find anything.

Solution: Restart your launcher, decryption will happen again and the problem will be solved. This will take around 20-30 minutes depending on your computer. The process will be faster on SSDs.

About the game – Red Dead Redemption 2 has been developed and published by Rockstar Games. The famous studio is known for its big titles such as Grand Theft Auto (All series), Max Payne, L.A. Noire to name a few. The developer has said that you won’t need a beefy gaming rig to run this title as it has been developed and furnished very well. However, we can never be sure about developers hyping their games since most of the AAA titles have multiple issues on release days.
