The Twitter hashtag #RedDeadFuneral has begun trending across the social media website as Red Dead Online fans pay their respects to the forgotten multiplayer mode. Players are being invited for beers in Valentine and the graveyard in Blackwater, where they're taking screenshots next to graves and dressing in black garments.

Fans are calling it the death of Red Dead Online since it's been exactly one year to the day since Rockstar released any substantial update for the multiplayer mode of Red Dead Redemption 2 — Blood Money back on 13th July 2021. The player base feels it's been abandoned by Rockstar, and the developer recently confirmed as much. In a statement, the GTA developer confirmed it'll simply be building on existing modes and adding new Telegram Missions this year rather than producing any new story content.

"Alongside seasonal special events and experience improvements – plus other changes to enhance and maintain a healthy Red Dead Online environment – we plan to build upon existing modes and add new Telegram Missions this year, rather than delivering major themed content updates like in previous years," it said. The developer is shifting all of its focus to GTA 6, it's been claimed.

Players are now sharing their own homages to the multiplayer mode, as well as images of them and other fans at the chosen memorial sites, of which a selection you can view below.
