SaveRedDeadOnline: Players tired of Rockstar’s lack of content

The last major update to Red Dead online was released in July 2021. Since then, the game has not received major content updates. When 2022 starts, RDO fans have grown tired of the lack of content and communication from Rockstar and have jointly launched the #SaveRedDeadOnline campaign to … well, save Red Dead online.

Blood Money was the last major content update Red Dead online Received and it was way back on July 13, 2021. And to call it a major update is a bit generous, as Blood Money mainly added some new but not entirely unique missions to the game and a new currency. It was a nice update, but compared to the latest GTA online updates, which has added lots of content and highlighted big names like Dr. Dre, it’s clear that one Rockstar game is more beloved than the other.

This has, as you might expect, disrupted Red Dead online players who feel that Rockstar is letting the game die despite all the potential it has to be something big and special.

All of this came to a boil on January 6th, when Rockstar announced a boring month-long event in Red Dead online which did not add any new content, but instead increased payouts on old missions and activities. This boring event seemed to be “too little too long”, and in response a large number of players started tweeting their frustration and anger by using #SaveRedDeadOnline hashtag.

Now, days later, the hashtag continues to trend on Twitter, and more and more players continue to share stories about how much they enjoyed playing the game and how they now feel abandoned by Rockstar.

Although I understand that it’s hard to make games, and during the covid era has only gotten harder, I also get the frustration of these players.

Of course, some have used the hashtag and growing frustration over Rockstar to crack down on developers and others on social media and push some RDO fans to fight back and remind players not to be violent assholes to the people who make the game or players who still enjoy it.

I have not touched RDO in the last few months because there just is not much that brings me back. In the meantime GTA online continues (even below covid) to receive massive and amazing updateates, adds new features, missions, events, vehicles, music and more every five to six months. And unfortunately for fans of RDO, that just has not been the case for online western for years now.

For many, it is not even just a demand for more content updates, but a call for more communication from the publisher and developer behind RDO, GTA V, and more. Of course, Rockstar Games has not responded to the campaign yet.
