The retail/DVD version does not require Steam, to play it install from the discs then load R* launcher and select the same directory, and tell it to install, it will detect the files are present then install the updates. If you own both retail and Steam then IDK if both can link to one account as I only own the retail version, but I imagine it probably would if you install and activate from the discs.

Hello, taking advantage on the topic, I bought GTA5 before Rockstar Launcher was a thing, currently only playing RDR2, which I play from R* launcher. Now onto the question, I want to install gta5 again, but from R* it says I have to buy the game, so do i need to install it from Steam even after it requiring to open R* along the way?

If you bought the game through Steam, then yes, Rockstar Launcher won't "detect" it unless it's installed via Steam. After you install the game through Steam you'll notice that tab change to "Play On Steam" instead.
