For some reason I had TWO graphics cards running even though I thought I only had my invidia. There was an Intel one set in my display 1 slot. I set it to only use my invidia card and then that error stopped popping up. Hopefully this helps someone


I got it to work. Even though my graphics card drivers told be they were up-todat , through device manager, i updated them anyway and THE GAME worked


I have the exact same issue,” failed to initialize graphics device” when trying to launch. I know for a fact that my PC can sure run the game given all the specs inside of this thing but it doesn’t seem to work. I am assuming this is something on their end and I sure hope Rockstar gets their thumb out of their arse and fixes this.
