RDO Next Updates Speculation & General Chat

Cuz....You ain't suppose to have fun making money in this game,u know?They want you to realize making money is not only a difficult thing in real life,but this fact applies to a game too.We want to let player experience the most chaotic game world in the most realistic way!Cash is your most precious queen,whenever and wherever,WHATEVER;And when you are sick of going through this moment,it's the perfect time to introduce our supreme king-Sharkcards.

Except no, it doesn't work that way. I have asked this forum and several others like reddit looking for ANYONE who buys gold bars / shark-cards because they are sick of the grind or because they lost a shipment to a (so called) "griefer". I have yet to find ANYONE who admits to it.

What I have found, however, is that people quit playing out of boredom but come back for a good update and then buy gold/cards because they are behind those who did not stop playing.

So if anything, it's the long time between updates that sells the gold/cards.

I get why people are thinking it will not be updated, but there is no way the game is being totally abandoned...its pretty obvious its on the back burner.  Which is terrible because GTAO is taking the attention that should be going towards RDO.

 

 In my opinion they are milking the coronavirus.  Why? Pretty simple..so they can push more updates on the almost guaranteed remaster of the game, which will be more likely to produce more micros  for the work especially if they add mexico or some of the other speculated things for story mode such as a remaster of RDR1 etc.  Also with the added benefit of being able to abandon the game on this current gen which is clearly limited for some reason.

It's still relevant imo.If money is not that hard to make,or let's say u can make money in a much more enjoyable way(good mission designs and less restrictive gameplay stuff),then one can sort of assume not a few of casual players actually won't consider using real dollars to buy in game stuff like this.Why?Cuz if the game mode is actually enjoyable,or worth my time trade off then of course I will spend some time playing it myself when the updates rolling out since I'm a casual player who still has interest in these games.Of course for majority of pros,they won't buy these stuff.

Personally not sure that means anything, they've been doing weird stuff with the depots even in GTA V, and the update depot in RDR2 has been updated in other branches regularly (reminder that update.rpf/data/version.txt where the game version is stored counts as update depot), they just pushed some more recent version to qabeta2. But could be something perhaps... Not totally convinced yet tho.

Madam Nazar is in GTA Online and we've had bonuses cross over between both games.

I think the most we would ever see is the treasure hunts. Like when we got the gold double action revolver in SP and Lowry's revolver in online

lulz. It just got updated again 5 minutes ago. Who knows what's happening now. Doesn't change anything for me though. We've been getting excited at this sh*t for a solid 7 months now so my reaction is the same as ever.

I think the most crossover we'll ever get is something similar to the card collecting and serial killer mystery.

whats the timeline of RDO does it take place before the events of RDR 2 like how GTAO started off 6 months before the events of GTA V?

I have two ideas.

 

The Blackwater Massacre from SP and Mrs LeClerks "Blackwater Incident" are the same event or at least happened at the same time. One may have been cover for the other so RDO takes place while the gang is hiding up North.

 

The timeline split at The Blackwater Massacre, something changed. The Gang could have been caught or someone like Hosea or Dutch could have died. Until we actually see a Gang member that was with us in Colter I will stick to the divergent timelines theory.

I wish Rockstar would quit trying to shoehorn the online timelines into the SP timelines. It would have been much easier for them to say that online shares the same world but is in a completely different timeline/universe. That way it's much easier to add in characters from SP if they chose to do so and to also progress the online storyline without stepping on the toes of SP.

Outlaw and especially the lawman seems optimistic...

I honestly don't believe it goes according to game design, but I could be wrong...

After all you are already an outlaw... right?

I meant that in the future, of course, you can Rob  trains and banks. This is what I meant by the outlaw role

It would be great and the "logical upgrade" for RDO.

Unfortunately, much alike the ranches that everybody is expecting, they won't ever come due to game design reasons... (non instanced content) expect them in RedM only!

From marketing perspective, releasing content separately would result in bad impressions of the main update, lowering interest rates and ends up looking like an incomplete update.

Also, drip-feed content mostly depends on aspects that are introduced with a new update. Integrating the content in a new DLC may maximize its potential. Plus, the developers can't just come up with new content out of thin air to fill in the missing spots of content that were released separately. I believe all of this contribute to Rockstar opting for compiling all the resources in one update.

Not to forget that releasing cars shortly after a DLC drop means that there are tons of players, many new ones as well, who want to buy the car and are tempted to purchase shark cards.

 

But if R* drops them between big updates only veteran player or players with enough cash will buy them and R* loses a lot of money by not releasing them during a big update with tons of new players or returning ones.

 

That's also how RDO updates and monetization works. Many people who ask, why is R* not simply releasing Outlaw Pass 3. For the exact same reason. R* would lose tons of money.

 

But they will make lots of money when bundling it with a new big update that attracts many new players and returning ones as well.

This is how these games are build. And that's okay.

RDO is still profitable and it will be even more in the future.

The reason is how the roles and progression system works, even better than GTAO regarding monetization but also appreciation of veterans (yes I said it).

 

Because imagine if the next update drops with a shiny new trailer, finally we can play the LAWMAN! Us veterans will be able to purchase it right away.

But what about new players?

Well first they need to acquire the bounty Hunter license for 15 gold and need to rank it up honorably to rank 5 or meet certain criteria.

Then they can buy the lawman badge for 25 gold.

But there is also this shiny outlaw pass 3 with limited exclusive rewards for 40 gold and this cool limited jacket for 8 gold. I might as well buy the 5$ special offer to get 25gold to get a head start, new players think.

Thats how monetization works. Whales aside.

And they build this foundation and will continue with it with future passes and roles, including the outlaw role. The key is to release certain big updates over a timeframe to attract new players. But make no mistakes, veterans are needed to advertise the game. Without vets games like GTAO and RDO would be dead. Every game  needs its core community to thrive, even Fortnite.

The 2 currencies work well for R* and how progression and currency are set up in RDO is a template for GTA6O.
