Red Dead Online to Get No New Major Content Updates as Rockstar Focuses on GTA 6

Matt Lorrigan

Rockstar has announced it is making changes to how it supports Red Dead Online, with no new major content updates on the horizon as the developer prioritises GTA 6.

“Over the past few years, we have been steadily moving more development resources towards the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series — understanding more than ever the need to exceed players’ expectations and for this next entry to be the best it can possibly be — and as a result, we are in the process of making some changes to how we support Red Dead Online,” said Rockstar's official announcement.

Red Dead Online will continue to get special seasonal events and updates to improve the experience this year, but Rockstar will concentrate on building upon existing game modes and adding new Telegram Missions. The game will also get monthly events showcasing specialist roles, showdown modes, and more, but Red Dead Online will no longer receive “major themed content updates” as it did in previous years.

“Once again, we want to thank the community for their continued support. We are truly grateful for all the constructive feedback we’ve received up to this point and hope you keep it coming,” says Rockstar.

Rockstar officially revealed the existence of Grand Theft Auto 6 earlier this year, and it seems that development of the highly anticipated sequel is pulling a lot all of Rockstar's resources.

  • I still don’t believe a single thing they say about gta 6, I doubt they’ve made anything other than a logo and some promotional pictures.
  • Watch GTA6 end up being a $70 expansion for GTAO
  • I don’t think R* could have tried less to support the multiplayer in this game, aside from their desperate scrabble to save it immediately after launch. The new roles were nice and all, but in true R* fashion, once they added them, they did practically nothing more with them, just like the businesses in GTA; great ideas, marred by sub-par execution and little post launch support. But then this game isn’t making “fuck you” money like GTA does, so there’s little financial incentive (to their shareholders) to try harder.
