Red Dead Redemption 2: A Phenomenal Single-Player Game, But a Neglected Multiplayer

Red Dead Redemption 2, released in 2017, was a critical success and many consider it Rockstar Games’ finest work to date. Similar to their 2013 hit, Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5), Rockstar produced a single-player campaign and an contact multiplayer set in the same universe but distinct from each other.

The Struggle with Red Dead Online

Unfortunately, Red Dead Online hasn’t reached the heights of GTA Online’s success. Some critics blame Rockstar Games for neglecting the multiplayer platform, with no significant content added since its launch.

A Long-awaited Update for Red Dead Online

In late 2021, after a prolonged absence of updates, Red Dead Redemption 2 finally received its first major update, 1.32. The patch addressed several issues and tweaked settings, but the most significant addition was HDR10+ support.

A Comparison with GTA 6

With the highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6 on the horizon, it’s unsurprising that Rockstar Games has focused their attention elsewhere. Since its launch in late 2019, Red Dead Online remained stagnant with no major updates or new content, even leaving bugs unaddressed.

The Community’s Plea

Despite the game’s impressive single-player mode, fans are eager for Rockstar to engage with Red Dead Redemption 2’s potential. However, their calls fall on deaf ears.

Here are a few quotes from the gaming community:

“Red Dead Redemption 2 is an exceptional game, but it’s been entirely forsaken by Rockstar Games. The multiplayer has been all but abandoned.”
