Red Dead Redemption 2 PC crashes on Twitch streamer Jericho at worst time

While streaming Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC for the very first time, one unlucky streamer had the game crash on him at the most amusing moment.

Red Dead Redemption 2 just launched on PC on November 5 and naturally, a large portion of content creators have been playing the game now that it’s on their platform of choice.

Unfortunately for Twitch streamer Tucker ‘JERICHO’ Boner, the Rockstar Games’ latest release just happened to crash on him at the most inopportune moment.

Throughout a broadcast on the day of release, the streamer decided to offer his formal opinion on the title as a whole, setting the tone in saying “alright, here’s my final statement on this.”

“This game looks fantastic,” he said, before adding that it looked even better than when he had first played it on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year. “It looks better than it did on console.”

Rockstar Games - Red Dead Redemption 2Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC features a number of graphical options not available on console.

Continuing his impromptu review, JERICHO explained that it even “looked fantastic on console,” however, mid-way through getting the words out the game hilariously crashed, leaving the stunned streamer starring at a Rockstar error message in amused silence.

Despite being released over a full year later than the console iteration, the unlucky crash amusingly proved that even with the extra time in development, sometimes triple-A titles can’t escape bugs and problems at launch.

“I think I’m done playing it for now,” he abruptly concluded his review between bouts of laughter. Maybe we’ll get a fully fleshed out review down the line, but for now, this amusing clip should perfectly encapsulate the PC experience when playing Red Dead Redemption 2.

Ultimately, JERICHO did get back on the horse, so to speak, and continued on with his Red Dead Redemption 2 run shortly after the poorly timed crash. 

Recently, popular Mixer streamer Michael ‘ Counter-Strike pro doesn’t encounter any similar crashes, however.
