The Red Dead Online community has long been campaigning for more content, spreading the hashtag #SaveRedDeadOnline in hopes of catching developers’ attention. It seems their demands have finally been heard, or at least acknowledged by publisher Take-Two Interactive.
According to a statement given to IGN, CEO Strauss Zelnick said that Take-Two plans to support online servers long term. Zelnick, however, made sure to point out that Rockstar Games will ultimately have to be the ones to add more content to Red Dead Online.
“Rockstar Games is talking about upcoming updates, and we’re working hard on Rockstar Games,” Zelnick told IGN. “I heard the frustration, it’s flattering that they want more content, and Rockstar will say more in due course.”
No new content has been promised at this time, so we’ll have to wait and see what Rockstar has planned for Red Dead Online.
Rockstar’s other online game, GTA Online, is doing well. Rockstar updates GTA Online regularly with new events and bonuses and recently rolled out a new optional paid subscription service. According to a revenue call, Take-Two is happy with the number of players who have signed up for a GTA+ subscription.
GTA V in general always makes a lot of money for Rockstar and recently surpassed 165 million copies sold. Red Dead Redemption II has also hit impressive numbers and recently surpassed 44 million in sales.
