Having finally arrived for PC, Red Dead Redemption 2 got a 'celebratory' set of issues that Rockstar set out to fix with the title update 1.14.1 for PC and Xbox One. The dev fixed several types of crashing on PC and Xbox One performance.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on 5 November 2019, but some PC users experienced a number of issues, which were later traced to certain combinations of Nvidia drivers, GPUs and specific CPUs. 

A week into launch, Rockstar rolled out a quick update that addressed some of them but the dev wrote, "We are still currently working together with Nvidia to completely resolve the stuttering issue in a future update, and it may take us up to a few days to properly test everything and ensure the next update completely solves the problem."

RDR2's latest title update 1.14.1 seems to have addressed, if not all, then most of them, as Rockstar wrote it fixes crashing when changing Windows audio devices or settings, as well as switching between Vulkan and DirectX 12. 

The full list of changes is as follows:

General / Miscellaneous – PC

  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when changing Windows audio devices/settings while the game was running
