Rockstar Games has announced its very own launcher, which is available to download right now.
The launcher is only available on Windows desktop for now, and there is no information on whether it will be coming to Mac or not. The launcher will allow PC players to access all of their Rockstar games in one place, including both digital and disc-based titles and ones purchased from other digital stores. The Launcher also includes its own shop, so you’ll be able to purchase Rockstar Games on PC directly.
Rockstar says that the Launcher “comes with a host of features”, which include the addition of cloud save functionality to all supported titles, the ability to keep your Rockstar Games library automatically updated, and an easy way to follow all Rockstar-related news from directly inside the Launcher. A number of Rockstar games currently aren’t available on the Launcher, the full list of which is below:
- Grand Theft Auto IV
- Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City
- Grand Theft Auto 2
- Grand Theft Auto
- Max Payne
- Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
- Midnight Club 2
To celebrate the release of the Rockstar Games Launcher, you can claim a free copy of the old-but-gold Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC for a limited time within the Rockstar Games Launcher.

A number of people are speculating that the release of the Launcher could be due to a possibly imminent PC release for Rockstar’s most recent classic, Red Dead Redemption 2. PC players who didn’t have access to a console to play it on will certainly be hoping so.
