The Rockstar Games Launcher, it's not a one-stop shop. It comes with a host of features including the addition of cloud save functionality to all supported titles, the ability to keep your Rockstar Games PC library updated automatically, and ways to follow all the latest Rockstar Games news from directly inside the Launcher. It can also scan some (but not all) other Rock Star games on your computer.


Not all of Rockstar's back catalog will work with the new launcher. The titles available for purchase are Grand Theft Auto V, Bully: Scholarship Edition, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto III, L.A. Noire, and Max Payne 3. Once it's downloaded, the Rockstar Games Launcher will ask to scan your PC for any currently installed Rockstar titles and will pull them into the launcher. 

With Rockstar making waves in everlasting games like GTA Online and Red Dead Online, a permanent home on PC makes sense. Digital PC game stores like Steam and Epic Games stores require a cut of the profits from Games sold in their stores. Steam needs 30% and Epic Games Store needs 12%. By selling games directly through a publisher's distribution platform, companies like Rockstar and Bethesda can bypass these profit cuts entirely.
