    What incentive is their to wait for the Steam version when launching the game from Steam will then just launch the Rockstar client as well? as is the case when now launching GTA V from Steam.

    Very shady practice.

    Re: Rockstar Games announces Red Dead Redemption 2 for PCs

    It is no different from what Ubisoft have been doing for a long time now, I agree it sucks but the incentive to wait for steam is so that you and your steam friends can join up and play together from that platform easily and use the steam overlay features (chat etc.) some people may even find it important to have your hours played logged there and to also have it added in your game library next to your other steam games. Personally I am just going to get it through the Rockstar launcher to save some background resources when playing but I can see why some people would wait for steam (especially over buying it from the epic store which I imagine would still require the Rockstar launcher too).

    I'll be waiting for the Steam version. Not because I have a fixation with only having the One True Launcher to the exclusion of all others but because I have the non Steam version of GTA V ands its way more hassle to get it working under Linux than the Steam version.

    SteamLink is one of the main reasons for me.. being able to play RDR2 on the TV will be pretty cool. Family Sharing in Steam is useful when my kids want a game from my library.

    I'll be doing the same, for the same reason, as most of my games are on Steam. And I waited this long, a while longer won't make a difference.

    nothing much you can do about it... as every major publisher is doing their own thing.
    but the only incentive is... having your data, purchases, licenses and library all in one central entity and that would be steam.
    and financially at the very least you only have your payment information on 1 location instead of spreading them on all platform

    Re: Rockstar Games announces Red Dead Redemption 2 for PCs

    Meh, I've lost interest in the game. Everybody was excited when it was released on consoles and all the console gamers were playing it for a week and then I've heard nothing about it since.
