  1. Thats how you change the language in Rockstar Games Launcher, you can’t change RDR2 subtitle/menu language ingame by changing the launcher language. It clearly says ‘Launcher Settings’ because it’s in the General tab, in RDR2 tab there is no setting to change ingame subtitle/menu language

    1. I don’t really know what you are talking about because every time I changed the language from the launcher settings, the language of the game changed as well. And I have already tried this on multiple systems.

  2. This didn’t work for me. I installed the Rockstar Launcher in English, iirc I installed RDR2 in English as well, but now when I started up RDR2, the game is entirely in German, because my machine’s standard language is German as well.
    Now, when I checked the settings again, it still says that the General language is set to English.

  3. Yeah can someone please help me, I am playing the game in Austria but I am not german. All the menus, subtitles, options, in-game info everything is in german. How can I change that? I tried the english setting in the Rockstar Launcher but it does not work.

    1. Same here. All you gotta do is change the Launcher language setting to GERMAN (or any other locaised language). Exit the launcher. Start the launcher again, change the language NOW to ENGLISH. Exit the launcher. Restart the launcher, launch the game et voilà. Enigmatically changed to English.

      That’s why some players can change the language, other cannot. Those who can have already CHANGED the language, while others have installed the game and have never CHANGED the language yet but set the language only once: during the installation process. That does not work for whichever reasons.

  4. Hi thanks for your reply. I managed to change the language to English by changing my Win 10 pc to english. It was quite easy and took me 2min. After that the whole game was in english. 🙂
