The launcher wars has begun.

There’s a certain subset of PC players who are waiting in dread for the next big title to be announced as an Epic Games Store exclusive with the granddaddy of them all being the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. The good news is that doesn’t seem likely at this point. The bad news is it doesn’t seem likely as it’s very possible it’ll be exclusive to a brand new (sort of) launcher that was just announced: Rockstar Games Launcher.

Technically speaking, the “new” launcher is actually the previous one they called the Social Club. But it seems they’ve put most of their PC library on there now. If you download now you’ll also get a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for a limited time.

While Grand Theft Auto V was also released on Steam, with the rebranding and stronger push as a full launcher and storefront, don’t be too surprised if Red Dead Redemption 2 ends up being an exclusive there, if at least for a limited time frame. But hey, all of Rockstar’s other games are still available on other launchers at least, for now.
