The #SaveRedDeadOnline movement made it all the way to the Take Two CEO, who addressed the trend while players desperately sought improvements throughout the title.
The Red Dead Online player community has routinely trended the hashtag on Twitter to allow developers to respond to everything from feeding new content to preventing disruptive players from ruining the gaming experience.
Despite player efforts, there still needs to be major updates to RDO to keep players happy, which was a major point of contention with the game’s audience.
But the radio silence was broken on May 16 when Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said IGN that he, and by extension the companies, were aware of the complaints and the promise of future support for Red Dead Online.
Before announcing Take-Two’s results, the CEO addressed the frustrations he’s heard from Red Dead Online players and how the company intends to address them.
“Rockstar Games is talking about the upcoming updates and we are working on a lot at Rockstar Games. I’ve heard the frustration, it’s flattering that they want more content and Rockstar will say more in due course,” Zelnick said.
Recognizing the calls for more RDO content, the CEO even said the company is planning “long-term” support for the game, according to IGN.
While brief, this is one of the first endorsements of the #SaveRedDeadOnline movement from higher ups at Rockstar or Take-Two.
It’s still unclear what long-term support Zelnick has in mind for the game, but players would like to see a lot more content in the developers’ pipeline.
With Rockstar’s other online-only game, GTA Online, benefiting from regular content drops, Red Dead Online players would like to see a similar initiative to their title of choice.
For now it will be a waiting game to see what new updates to RDO land, but if Zelnick’s comments are something to steer clear of, then good news could be on the horizon.
