Red Dead Redemption 2 SP DLC Speculation & Discussion thread

Recommended Posts


As we know a SP DLC for GTA V was a big deal. We've gotten into big heated arguments on here about will they or wont they release one and whether it existed or not. There were many theories about what the SP DLC could have been about aliens, zombies, etc. People with "sources" confirmed that one was planned in development but was cut and added into online instead.


Instead we got nothing. People lost hope worried that R* was abandoning their Single player fanbase in favor of the GTA Online crowd and microtransactions.


Imran Sarwar recently said this during an interview with Game Informer.



With both GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar made excellent, dedicated single-player campaign-style expansions in Episodes from Liberty City and Undead Nightmare. Grand Theft Auto Online has integrated narrative elements to setting up criminal enterprises, but most of the tales generated from GTAO are more emergent in nature. Was it a tough call to move away from more scripted experiences or do you view this as a natural evolution of open-world design toward giving players more agency over their play experience?


No, it was not really a conscious decision, its just what happened. We would love to do more single-player add-ons for games in the future. As a company we love single-player more than anything, and believe in it absolutely for storytelling and a sense of immersion in a world, multiplayer games dont rival single-player games. With GTA V, the single-player game was absolutely massive and very, very complete. It was three games in one. The next-gen versions took a year of everyones time to get right, then the online component had a lot of potential, but to come close to realizing that potential also sucked up a lot of resources. And then there are other games in particular Red Dead Redemption II. The combination of these three factors means for this game, we did not feel single-player expansions were either possible or necessary, but we may well do them for future projects. At Rockstar, we will always have bandwidth issues because we are perfectionists and to make huge complex games takes a lot of time and resources. Not everything is always possible, but we still love single-player open-world games more than anything. I dont think you could make a game like GTA V if you did not like single-player games and trying to expand their possibilities!

Personally I'm not expecting a SP DLC for RDR2. R* doesn't like to repeat themselves and it's hard to predict what they will do with RDR2 maybe they decide that the singleplayer is "complete" like GTA V leave it as it is and focus on online.



If they do decide to give us a SP DLC I'd like to see something in the style of EFLC focusing on different characters. I'd like to play as Dutch Van Der Linde set before RDR2 or either as Bill Williamson or an unknown character maybe a Native American that crosses paths with Arthur during the main story or try the other side of the law and play as a US Marshal.


They could also give us a Undead Nightmare 2 SP DLC instead.


R* could continue the story of Arthur Morgan in another DLC but I think that's highly unlikely. After the main story is told they never reuse the main character in a DLC unless it's to make a cameo That's something that Ubisoft would do not R*.




Whatever your feelings about the SP DLC for GTA V do you think there will be one for Red Dead Redemption 2? If so what would you like to see?

IMO i think it's still early to be discussing this. With that said i hope they add something like Undead Nightmare or an map expansion with a new story that would take us to Mexico or sth like that

After how they handled GTA V's SP post launch, its clearly not happening. They are obsessed with Online bs now.


I think the days of big expansions from Rockstar games are over.


I would have liked something like Undead Nightmare but with something else and not zombies again..

Expect SP DLC R* cant milk RDR2 as its set in the wild west from early 1800s to late 1900s there wasn't that much materialistic wise meaning that they would have to drop SP DLC's and concentrate more on SP because they don't need materials all the time for SP they can produce different stories for DLC, of course we will be seeing DLC for online but i doubt it will be the main focus due to the timeframe RDR2 is set in. Just because they milked a games online that can actually be milked doesn't mean they will risk a game with more potential that cannot be milked, trust me R* is smarter than they look. Its common sense they cant focus primarily on online which even my stupid ass thinks is dumb then the game will die very fast causing R* to make less money and R* doesn't want that too happen. When we get SP DLC i doubt we will be seeing undead nightmare though i mean the games releasing in October and they released the first on in the year of October for the halloween feel i could be wrong though, i personally hope we get a RDR1 remastered as a DLC so that once we complete the RDR2 we can hop on the upgraded version of RDR1, i mean they wouldn't need voice actors as they can use the previous voices from the first game... idk a pretty unrealistic request but can a man dream.

RDR2 online just wont be as popular as GTAOnline (even if the quality of the game is twice as good, cowboys just dont have the same width of appeal that contemporary criminals do).

So if they want to make superprofits from the new IP, DLC is probably how they will have to do it.

I would like to see a native american protagonist if a dlc was made. There is too little native american pressense in gaming and them making a native american protagonist would be awesome to see. I would also like it if they remade Redemption 1's story assuming the leak is true and most of Redemption 1 map is back. It would be easier for them to remake it than to port it because of the bad code in Redemption 1.
