I just ran a small test and apparently the game crashes while playing also when you do not have any active internet connection. So you might check that as well.Beautiful and great game...but a game that I cant play. My PC has been stabile from the start and every software/game has been working great. Even Prime95 with AVX can be run hours without problems. Red Dead 2 is the only thing that just keeps crashing. At first it didn't even start but the first patch corrected that problem. I've tried to search for a solution but to no avail. Can't pinpoint it to a single hardware issue as it seems people are having similar issues be it with NVIDIA, AMD or Intel. There must be something fundamentaly wrong with the game itself.
