RDO Speculation & General Chat (Part II)

Recommended Posts

The decision to halt the development was likely made back in September 2021 internally. Or even before that. As shown by SteamDB updates. I guess Rockstar waited long enough so GTA6 can be mentioned.

I'd say 2020. While every other service game big and small was scrambling to support the next-gen launch with cross platform progression, R* never showed any sign of it for RDO... ever. The warning signs were there for the PC launch which never got console > PC either. You simply do not have long term plans while simultaneously willingly losing a chunk of your playerbase who swapped platform with the new generation launch, or moved to PC. Everyone else announced plans for cross platform progression, even R* finally did it with GTAO with E&E which only took so long cause of delays and the fact they wanted to monetise it.

 

I've beaten that horse to death now but I was right then and I have been proved right now. RDO was dropped in 2020, everything it got in 2021 was probably just the scraps they had left over that they threw together for an update.

Could they not have just given us one last Swan Song update?

 

Add purchasable homes, add the ability to buy wagons, Solo Session/Invite Only and remove the timers. If the game is dead then let people control their own sandbox.

I guess it’s safe to say that Red Dead Redemption II will never get a PS5/Xbox Series S/X release either?

Yes. I've heard about those a long time ago. As well as their plan to come up with an Enhanced Rockstar Editor. All cancelled/halted by now.

It does beg the question if they’ve moved all of RDO resources to VI why not HIRE MORE PEOPLE FOR RDO? I mean come on ffs they are literally swimming in cash. THIS is their excuse? We don’t have enough resources? A multi billion dollar company? Lmao. Poor souls.

It's a decision influenced by ROI. Those more people you're talking about will also be funneled into VI's production one way or another.

 

Rockstar clearly doesn't want to leave any stone unturned when it comes to VI and they can't afford to stop supporting GTAO, so RDO gets the short end of the stick.

That game's economy is busted up to a point where there's pretty much nothing you can do to fix it via a patch, so from Rockstar's perspective, it's better to just leave it be. And frankly, I don't see any way to improve this situation without relaunching the entire game, but we all know that's not gonna happen, so it is what it is.

Damn my disappointment is immeasurable. It shouldn’t be that hard to unlock 60 FPS on consoles.

A sad update, but at least they communicated something. I said a few days ago that I would play towards 3K goldbars, I have 2610 now. I think I will do that and then just check for the forthcoming monthly updates and some smaller things that they might think of like the telegram missions.

The thing is I have been playing this game so long and so consistent that I probably can not just switch it of in a blink of an eye, so hence towards 3K goldbars I go.

 

Fortunatly I have only played the single player game once, and on purpose left out playing most side-missions so that when RDO was done I can still go back and  complete the game 100% in total, and RDR2 is one of the very few games that I will go for 100% completion.

 

Funny thing is this being the last day of the Steam sale, I thought about winding down my RDO playing time, so I purchased the Mafia I remake yesterday so at least I have something to look forward to, besides finishing RE7.

 

Its a very good time to be a gamer, good games I have not yet played and many on the horizon. However as far as mp go then RDO could have been and in many ways for me always will be a bit special. My gamer heart is sad by the way things have turned out, and not turned out with RDO.

However I will venture towards 3K goldbars, but being around rank 549, I had hoped I would be interested enough to  reach rank 1000, but now I am certain I will not.

 

I still do believe that they could at least give us access in some way to the previous passes, I only lack the first one, it would not cost them much to do this.

nah man, this just sucks

 

why can't they release atleast a 60 fps patch for RDR2? like cmon, does it really take up sooo much time and resources? sure lets release gta v for the third time but not do a 60 fps patch for rdr2..

 

 

its a crime that this amazing game is still 30 fps on ps5 and xbox, like what?

 

i don't even need any big enhancements, 60 fps and a bit less blurriness is all i need

Come on, this game isn't really just gonna pass away. Rockstar is balls deep into GTA 6, we know GTA Online is their main and easiest cash cow, which makes Red Dead Online the last priority, but still a priority. I firmly believe we'll see something at a later point, but it's a damn shame it can't be at a near point in time

Have you read the latest newswire?

You're probably right.

 

It brings me back to the comment from some R* dude that he said long ago, 2 years more or less, that they would support the game through 2022. As I've said before, if they had plans to continue past then there would be no need to make that comment. Some people said I was nuts to believe that but it seems to have come to fruition.

Regardless of Tez's tweet and contradicting post I still think it's possible they could do a simple current-gen FPS unlock patch, remember that despite RDO no longer getting any major content they said they're still adding Telegram missions, they could sneak a patch in there. Wishful thinking but...


Doesn't need an "E&E", just a mere patch to unlock the settings for PS5 and Xbox Series.

Yes, I have. I posted what I said before I knew about the newswire, and I still stand by what I said. I've read it 3 times, and there is nothing that indicates that RDO is gonna die, that's something people keep saying, but it's still running. I'm saddened that there's gonna be an absence of major content, but like I said, RDO is the last priority and they're balls deep in GTA 6 now.

Well, some people are never convinced no matter how many times they get hit over the head.

 

Odds are pretty good that by the time they release GTA6 there won't be enough players in RDO to bother with it. They aren't making enough money from it now to bother. How many more people do you think will bother to buy RDO knowing there isn't any future in it? How many that are playing now will buy gold knowing there is no future? So whatever revenue they are getting from RDO will drop like a rock. That will make R* want to get back to RDO, won't it?

Least they could do is make the PS version 4k and HDR enabled, so its at least on par with the xbox version. Currently the PS5 version is a downgrade to the PS4 and xbox one versions graphically.

Absolutely tragic. I've been following this game for years, so this is the worst news we could get. At least we don't have to worry about it anymore. GTAO really did a number to our favorite western game huh.... It's such a shame because it will be years, maybe a decade before we get another GOOD western game. Honestly one of the biggest disappoinments in the last few years.

Just give us a native resolution and 60 FPS for single player and then move on Rockstar, that's all I am asking at this point.
