Red Dead Online Players were so frustrated with the game’s lack of content updates that they took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with Rockstar.
For the past three days, fans have taken Rockstar to the mission on social networks, with the hashtag “bringing attention to their chagrin”SaveRedDeadOnline“It’s been trending. As of press time, there have been over 18,200 tweets using the hashtag.
The problem for players is the lack of new updates for the game, as the last bit of new content dropped in July 2021. It’s called Blood Money, and it adds homestead heists and the task of recovering private bonds known as Capitale. Added a new quest called “Crimes” where you can rob, hijack a coach, kidnap, collect debts, and more for clues on where to find Capitale.
Updates to the game have come in the form of new modes and missions since July, but lately, players have only been rewarded for their troubles, which isn’t everyone’s satisfaction. GTA Online in particular has received two sizable updates in the past six months – Los Santos Tuner and the latest contract starring Dr. Dre.
Herein lies the problem, according to the Red Dead Online community, many of whom believe Rockstar is more concerned with adding fresh content to GTAO than its online cowboy romp.
Fans were also unhappy with Rockstar’s lack of communication, and called on the developers to provide at least a roadmap so players know what to expect from the game going forward.
Here’s what some members of the Twitter community have to say about the current situation – notably many reddit users Equally frustrating, even touching on the subject of mediocre content Last week by PC Gamer’s Lauren Morton.

Red Dead Online will not be updated as it will not allow Rockstar to make money. But it doesn’t make money because they don’t update it.
Fans have a list of great update ideas here. https://t.co/nCV1t1RACZ
No updates, no bullion purchases.#SaveRedDeadOnline

Not sorry for the rant. I’m tired of seeing the objectively best open world games to date get shitted and ignored by developers because they’re too busy milking it to take care of it.

I apologize for my rant, but I’ve waited a long time for them to ride this amazing game. Rockstar made a lot of promises back in 2018 that it would continue to evolve, but apparently it wasn’t.
It’s been two years since this behavior had to be brought up. This is ridiculous and outrageous.

Remind us of what we are striving for:
RDO doesn’t even need a new update to keep everyone happy. We need a decent roadmap and know if we can really have high hopes for this game. If the game’s fate is to die and be truly abandoned, we want to know!#SaveRedDeadOnline pic.twitter.com/ZRnNMVttN5

#SaveRedDeadOnline This game deserves more content, better content.Modes that I don’t even really care about won’t get a month-long bonus after I’ve played a few call-to-battle games
