November is here, BETA release date?

Recommended Posts

I’d rather play a beta, than wait six months for release. Besides, it may be better having that kind of test and fix/balance the game, than doing it Internally and releasing a version where things have been “fixed” and it’s considered finished.

Rumor has it that BETA will be at the end of the month.

Which sucks cause there was hype that it was going to be in 

the start of this month - or at least 2 weeks later just like

they launched gta online.

GTAV came out on September 17, 2013....this was a Tuesday....GTAO was released October 1, 2013, another Tuesday...  All updates were have always been on Tuesday.. If you think about it, RDR2 was released on Friday (unless you went to GameStop and received it Thursday night), so I would guess next Thursday or Friday.  I wouldn't think they would release on Thanksgiving day or weekend because I don't think they would get the ratings that they would expect to see.  I could be wrong but I am going to take my guesses on that...

Who needs links when you have Google?

 

Some dude from Rockstar or TakeTwo said yesterday (11/7) that Red Dead Redemption Online will be released "towards the end of the month".

 

Up until now all I had heard/read was "mid-November".

 

Sure, maybe they both mean the same thing, but with being kept in the dark, let the speculations continue! With this newest comment, what dates are you predicting for RDRO to roll out? I'd be real surprised if this doesn't get released until Black Friday.

 

Earliest id say the 20th or so ( getting a trailer next week)

"Your game launch is sh*t"
"Well its just a BETA Bruh!" *MLG horns*
"Thats no excuse, I lost all my data"
"It will be fixed when we release the full version in a month"
"Why not just hold off for a month?"
"Urrrrm.....*MLG horns*"

Your complains make no sense, you realise nobody forces you to play beta? Final testing has to take a place anyway, ofc they can delay public release by a month and pay some guys to stress test their product, but this is simply worse option for both, the company and impatient players.

Loved mlg horn jokes tho, they should have added this option to gtao vehicle horns list.

No-one is forcing me to play the "BETA" but you would think that a company that has made over a billion dollars in MTs and seven hundred and fifty million dollars from RDR2 alone would be able to release the online portion of their game without cowered behind the excuse of a "BETA" would you not?

Like I said further down, I could understand a small Indie Dev/Game doing an Online BETA but R*? Nah.

They could, I guess, but there is literally no reason to do so, everyone benefit from open beta approach. Even attention seeking moaners, as they have an occasion to bitch about.

I take it you never played the GTA Online launch week? 

That is why I suspect R* is hiding behind the "BETA" excuse and tell me this, why should we, we who paid for the game, be free BETA testers for a company thats made billions? Why should be have sh*t shovelled into our mouths and when we say "This tastes like sh*t" be given the excuse "Its just a BETA bro!"

When our Characters get deleted, our saves corrupted etc we cant complain because "Its just a BETA"

I expect a company like R* to release something relatively stable and playable and not cower behind the BETA" excuse like small and insignificant Devs.

^Lol, can't help this guy. I understand complains, when companies release betas as final version, but bitching about the best approach to make perfect product is beyond stupid. Same goes for people who upvote this nonsense.

It is simply the best way to go about testing and communicating that core gameplay elements may changed based on the testing.

I'm ready for RDO now lets do this, I hope we get a surprise announcement. someone said they'll drop it against fallout 76, and I feel like that (other than at the end of the month) is the most likely scenario. So if that is the case, then possibly next Friday with an announcement at the weekend, Then again I'm just satiating my own impatience with ideas. 

Grounded ideas though, we can only hope!

You really blindly hate everything Rockstar does now, don't you? Developers don't need to be indie to hold public BETA's, there is only ONE way of testing how the game will handle thousands of people and transactions happening at the same time, and that is launching a test version for everyone to try. You cannot artificially simulate server load the same way real humans can with real gameplay and real finding exploits. A BETA is just that, it's a test period where thousands of users can help finding bugs, testing the server load, and everything else. It is by NO MEANS a show of incompetence, laziness or whatever you might think. You can QA a singleplayer game mostly in-house, but an online game with constantly changing variables, the best way to test it is by releasing a test version.

 

Budget has nothing to do with this, competence has nothing to do with this. And yes, before you think I'm defending Rockstar, the same goes for Bethesda and their Fallout 76 (to give you a current example). The way they handle these betas is another story we shall see with RDO.

@Spider-Vice

 

Can you please show me where i blindly hate everything R* does? Me posting my opinions in this topic about something I don't agree with does not mean I hate everything and with all due respect I would appreciate it if you didn't make such claims about me especially with you being a mod.

 

What you are thinking about is a stress test which is fine. Stress tests have been around for years but BETAs and "early access" is a very new concept.

I'm actually surprised they haven't revealed a release date.... or any information at all yet.

I bet it'll come out before Thanksgiving as they probably want as many people around for the premier as they can for number reasons

 

And motivate the crowd to bash eachother's heads in trampling eachother for sales, while shopping for a copy of the game or PS Pro/RDR2 bundle a day after they're thankful for what they have....

Early access/beta testing has been around for ages, though tbf it's only been in the last decade or so that they've become a highly visible aspect of a game's marketing. In the past they tended to be low-key and often accessible by invitation or application only. 

 

At any rate, all we can do is hope R* learned from the GTAO disaster and is better prepared for this launch. Whether the "BETA" label represents an honest appeal for input, cynical hedging of bets or simple cowardice is mostly down to individual perspective because it's probably some mixture of all three.

My apologises, you said it better than I did. These days they are just an excuse to release unfinished code and have millions of people QA it for free and if it does go tits up you readily have the excuse of "Its just a BETA bro".

GTA Online was released on October 1st 2013 (GTAV launch was on September 17th 2013)

This is correct and I expect the same for RDR2 but I did see an article saying PS4 would get limited online content earlier

I wonder when we will get access to the online portion? How long after GTA5 released did we wait for Online?

 

You could look it up? The quality of this so called role-playing is rather tedious at best.

 

I hope RDRO takes place before/during the main game that way you can get side missions from members of the camp.

But is it directly from rockstar or some gaming news site, though? If it’s some random dude or from a YouTube video, they are probably lying or making a blind guess.

next dlc (apart from regular christmas thing) will be next year (if it comes at all) because they want the focus to be on rdr, from what i understand new dlc depends on how much of the player base sticks to gtao after rdr online comes out, they havent got anything close to ready yet so no idea what the next dlc will be but they still have the mansions and casino which i think may be next because its big money spending=more cash cards
