Some developers working on projects for Google’s soon-to-shut Stadia cloud gaming platform have pulled the rug from their feet (opens in new tab). Many gamers are losing their save progress and preferred platform.It can be said that no one compares YouTuber (opens in new tab) and Tik Tok (opens in new tab) Creator Colour, as reported game radar (opens in new tab)ended 6,000 hours (opens in new tab) On the Stadia version of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption Online 2. All that rooted cowboy fun is about to fade away like tears in the rain.
6,000 hours spent on anything is absolutely staggering. It’s not your usual “spending too much time in the game”, it’s 250 days. For five years, I’ve been an avid barbell and kettlebell lifter to what I could easily call “intermediate to advanced.” The math behind the napkin allowed me to actively pursue one of my major hobbies at the time for 1,500-2,000 hours.
Further wild, wild calculations lead me to the conclusion that 6,000 hours of RDR Online 2 has averaged over 4 hours of color per day since Stadia was released in November 2018. If you allow a weekend, it’s closer to six hours. Granted, Color does do a lot of content creation for RDR Online 2, and being an “RDR Online 2 guy on Stadia” is their thing, but I still find it a pretty maddening gameplay!this is mine Pepe Sylvia (opens in new tab).
Forget the logistics of all this, though, and Colour’s investment of time in Red Dead Online is in serious danger of being one of the Libraries of Alexandria that burns down the internet every day. It doesn’t have to be like this.

There are some ways to transfer single player progress from RDR2 on Stadia to PC, not required for multiplayer transfer Color.Other developers with Stadia ports, such as IO Interactive (opens in new tab) and Bunge (opens in new tab) Ways to allow players to transfer their data to another platform are being actively researched.
As far as color is concerned, they hope to save their progress from oblivion with a “one-time role transfer”. We’ve reached out to Rockstar for comment and will update this story if we hear back.
I may not be able to understand Colour’s investment of time and energy into Read Dead Redemption Online 2 on Stadia, but I can admire the investment.I hope Rockstar can help them before the winds of fate blow Colour’s progress away like some digital tech sand mandala (opens in new tab).
