The #SaveRedDeadOnline community have been heard, but to what end?
Red Dead Redemption 2

Complaints about how Rockstar has seemingly ignored Red Dead Online have not gone unheard. For months now, the Red Dead Online community have been pleading with Rockstar for more significant updates to the game. They see all of the content coming out for Grand Theft Auto Online and feel as though Rockstar has abandoned them for their bigger money maker.

That much is probably true. GTA Online is a massive money-maker for Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two, so it just makes sense that more resources are committed to it.

The Red Dead Online community has been using the #SaveRedDeadOnline tag for several months now. Their efforts seem to have fallen on deaf ears as nobody from either Rockstar nor Take-Two have said a peep about the complaints. That is, until today.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick talked with IGN a little bit today ahead of the company's quarterly earnings call. What he said may not be the good news that fans wanted to hear, but at least it's something.

"Rockstar Games talks about the updates that are coming, and we're working on an awful lot at Rockstar Games. I've heard the frustration, it's flattering that they want more content, and more will be said by Rockstar in due time."
When asked if there was going to be continued support for Red Dead Online in the long term, Zelnick at least said that this was the plan.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has reportedly sold over 44 million copies since its initial release back in 2018. Last week, a rumor started to circulate that a next-gen (PS5, Series X|S) release is coming. That's really all we have to go on right now concerning that particular rumor.
