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.
Rockstar have damaged their reputation hugely over the past few years. No meaningful story content if any at all to any of their games. Multiple releases of GTA5 but not even a patch for RDR2 not to mention any of the requested remakes/remasters of some of their most beloved games. I don’t really have much interest in GTA 6, but i would have paid full
Price for a RDR remake, Bully, truth be told I’d probably purchase RDR2 again if they released it for PS5 with some new content but as it stands we’re getting none of that!
A great multiplayer game that really was ripe for further expansion, so this is a real shame.
Lazy as per usual, unless it prints money they don't much care
@Boucho11 Rockstar as we knew it is long gone and RDR 2 is the last great single player game i think they will release. They've had a mass exodus of the creative talent that put them on the map, and i just can't get excited for what's next. The rumours around GTA 6 do not fill me with confidence
Never cared for online myself so this is lost on me. I don't have the time to waste in online play so meh.... RS going all in on GTA6... hope it's a good one.
The fact nearly all major people that created the previous GTA games have left the company has me worried at what GTA 6 will be.
I'm fully expecting some integrated GTA Online with the story mode to force as many people online or towards microtransactions.
What have they given us since GTAV? Just RDR2. Admittedly the single player was amazing, but it had no DLC. GTAV had no single player DLC. The GTA trilogy remasters were poor. Ffs Rockstar sort yourselves out!
@get2sammyb a real shame is right
To me this is stupid. You must be on drugs to believe any company is going to have free updates like a live service game. They are definitely not going to make story DLC when they can make more money from microtransactions, Microsoft bragged about this with Halo 5 hence Free 2 Play Halo Infinite. Certain gamer's have done this to themselves. You obviously didn't buy enough microtransactions within RDO hence why they are not supporting the game they obviously don't veiw it as worth it.
Only play for single player campaign only.. never got into online.. GTA6 will be amazing I’m sure
Look how gorgeous this game still looks! Gonna have to get on and pay my respects.
GTA Online has been so well supported with story-based DLC that tbh this is no great loss to me. Plus the new QoL updates coming soon that make it a viable solo game - but it's miles better with a friend or two for sure.
I always knew RDR Online would be incredibly held back due to its time period, and this is also why we're likely never going to see an 80s GTA ever again.
@Boucho11 rockstar has damaged there reputation? Sweetie you sound stupid and did you say the samething about naughty dog too?
@get2sammyb just play the single player more then and stop crying over it
@rumple1980 ok so why did you come on this post to announce that?
@Netret0120 I'm worried about your whining and complaining when they announce a trailer for GTA 6 and i remember you guys were whining and complaining before red dead redemption 2 came out
@Zombiechris ahhh darling…. That’s for me to know xxx
Legitimate concerns is very different to whining and complaining.
The 1st GTA Game without the majority of people who helped create the ones we love is a legitimate concern. Only time will tell if i'm right or wrong.
If I'm wrong, great for me as I enjoy the franchise. However I highly doubt you would admit you were wrong judging on the approach you took with me and the other posters before me. Not that I care, just an observation.
@Netret0120 this is my apology Taylor swift I'm sorry please forgive me
@Boucho11 ok sweetie
