Rockstar to shelve updates for RDR2 multiplayer

Rockstar has confirmed that it will not be adding any more major updates to Red Dead Redemption 2 as it continues to focus on the development of Grand Theft Auto 6.

GTA 6 was confirmed to be in development earlier this year and it appears that the developers are now putting their sole focus onto the next entry into the franchise.

An update on Rockstar’s official website, as per Video Games Chronicle, reveals that they are winding down their development on the cowboy hit.

The statement read: “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.”

Rockstar has confirmed that it will continue to support existing modes but will not be adding any more, or making major updates.

They add: “Firstly, with both new and experienced players engaging in the wealth of activities already added to this massively rich world including Specialist Roles, story-based cooperative missions, competitive Showdown Modes, and much more, we will continue to showcase these unique additions through Red Dead Online’s monthly events as we move forward, so players of all levels can enjoy everything the vast frontier has to offer.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to release update 1.27 next.

“Alongside seasonal special events and experience improvements — plus other changes to enhance and maintain a healthy Red Dead Online environment — we plan to build upon existing modes and add new Telegram Missions this year, rather than delivering major themed content updates like in previous years, and we will continue to highlight and share the creative efforts of our Red Dead community at every opportunity via the Newswire and beyond.

“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.

“This direct feedback from players has been instrumental to the ongoing success of both GTA Online and Red Dead Online — and an integral element of what helps us continue to evolve and improve as we push ahead towards the future.”

GTA 6 is the follow up to GTA 5, which released way back in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
