Take-Two Boss Responds to Red Dead Redemption 2 Backlash
While no one will argue that "Red Dead Redemption 2" is an awe-inspiring game, the same can't quite be said for the adjacent multiplayer offering set within the same world. It has been about a year since "Red Dead Online" saw any kind of meaningful update, and players are reaching the end of their patience.
Speaking with IGN, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed his awareness of "Red Dead Online" players' issues. He said, "Rockstar Games talks about the updates that are coming, and we're working on an awful lot at Rockstar Games. I've heard the frustration, it's flattering that they want more content, and more will be said by Rockstar in due time."
Take-Two Interactive later clarified that Zelnick's comments specifically referred to the title's servers, not to any added game content. That might feel like a blow to any fans hoping Zelnick's acknowledgement might lead to a tangible change in the game, but it also means that there's no way the #SaveRedDeadOnline campaign isn't on Rockstar's radar now.
IGN concluded its report with the revelation that "Red Dead Redemption 2" has sold over 44 million copies worldwide. People love adventuring in Rockstar's take on the wild west, and with the #SaveRedDeadOnline movement right at its doorstep, hopefully Rockstar doesn't let fans down in the future.
