Stuttering problem with RDR2

New here. I've been having trouble finding help for this particular issue. Recently bought a factory recertified PS4 slim from PS direct. Everything works fine, except one game. Red Dead Redemption 2 has an annoying (albeit not consistent) stuttering issue. The picture and audio will stutter repeatedly for maybe 5 minures sometimes. Happens frequently but not constantly and it doesn't appear to be triggered by anything specifically, just happens.

I've tried rebuilding database, reinstalling the game, deleting my saves/starting over, and cleared the cache. Nothing seems to work. Only thing i can imagine is a hardware issue, but I'm hoping it's not. Anyone have any recommendations on how i should proceed? Would reinstalling the system software help? Any suggestion would be appreciated.
