I don't support piracy, but when, on the other side of spectrum you have:

 

"Let's encourage customers to buy our game by releasing a buggy, finicky, rushed piece of garbage that requires online DRM a year later at full price!"

 

Then it's kinda hard to pick a side. Both sides are destructive.

The stupid thing is, there are other players who claim they can run the game in "offline mode" without issues. It's even stated in the patch notes that there is, and here, customer support claims we need a constant internet connection to play. They are contradicting themselves.

 

And what's even more frustrating, if this is indeed a bug, they are not willing to acknowledge it and believes everything is working as intended, leaving some people able to play offline and some who can't. Their whole DRM system is a joke.  One of the worst launchers I've ever experienced.

Either support is clueless or they're trying to get rid of me as I'm a bit persistent on the matter, anyway they didn't acknowledge it to be a bug as I've put forward to them.

 

Or they've decided to flip the switch and implement the persistent DRM, which is beyond me.

 

If you look at the RDR2 Steam page "Network: Broadband Internet connection" is listed under the system requirements, of course this can just be a requirement for downloading the game. Though it wasn't listed as a system requirement at Rockstar: https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/360037044893/Red-Dead-Redemption-2-PC-System-Requirements Neither was it listed as a system requirement on Epic Store, so we will see.

 

Anyway I'm done with the game for now, stressing over the DRM is just not worth my time, there are other games to play. Will check back with RDR2 in a few months time to see what state the DRM is in.

 

I will try to keep the thread up to date if they get back with me and the situation has change or if they retract what they said.

So, there was a new launcher patch that got released recently and offline mode seems to be working for me now. Here's what I had to do:

 

First, I had to re-log into the launcher (make sure to have "remember me" and "auto sign-in" ticked), then I launched the game and waited till I was in the main menu. I then disabled my internet connection and let the game transition into "offline mode". I then quit the game and relaunched it again to see if it'll work, and thankfully, it did. I even restarted the launcher (including my whole computer) and was surprised to find out that it still worked offline.

 

I'm not sure how long the offline mode will last (or when it might break again), but I'm glad that it's working properly now. Hopefully, it's working for the rest of you all as well.

Yep, currently working now, was the buggy launcher all along.
