How Long Does It Take Red Dead Redemption 2 To Install?

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a sizeable game. It is so sizeable in fact that the physical copy of the game actually comes with two discs, something that is unprecedented in the current generation of gaming. The first disc will only be used during the installation process, and from then on the game can be played using only the second disc.

When you insert the first disc, two bars will appear on screen. When the first is full, you can insert the second disc.


In total, there is 90GB of data that needs to be installed. It may vary depending on your console, but the physical version of the game should take around 90 minutes to install. There is also a 3GB update that is available for download, so you can add on some extra time for that also.

As for the digital version of the game, that will depend largely on the quality of your internet. You will also require significantly more free space on your console in comparison to the physical copy of the game. It comes in at a whopping 150GB, so you will need high quality internet in order to avoid pulling your hair out while you wait for it to download.
