Red Dead Redemption fans scream at Rockstar for ignoring them and focusing on ‘GTA 5.’
Red Dead Redemption fans are fed up. Rockstar Games has placed a symbolic snake in every fan’s metaphorical boot, and they won’t take it anymore.
Red Dead Online players protested the latest pathetic update earlier this month and demanded that Rockstar Games “save the online Western” before it was too late. Although I don’t play Red Dead Online, it has been challenging to see Rockstar waste such a beautiful and detailed open world by refusing to do anything.
It’s been a few weeks since the last update, and there hasn’t been any change. Rockstar did not respond to upset fans, and the Red Dead Redemption community is still angry.
Reddit is seeing anger boil over again as Red Dead Redemption II, Red Dead Online and Red Dead Redemption II are criticized by fans who accuse the developer of focusing on Grand Theft Auto V (GTA Online) instead. It’s easy to see why the fans are upset that GTA 5 is about to be re-released on new-generation consoles.
“When will Rockstar stop remastering over and over again?” One fan posted a comment on the game’s subreddit. “This game has barely seen any updates since its release three years ago. We need content, a redesign, or anything! We need something!
“I wanted the Rockstar editor,” I added. “RDR2is a beautiful game, and to have it missing (which GTA IV&V did) is a sin.”
Some are asking why the game doesn’t offer 60fps on consoles. Others hope to see an “expanded” and enhanced remaster similar to the upcoming GTAVport.
Rockstar will continue to be the main focus of GTA for the moment. However, Red Dead Redemption II is a beautiful, complete experience that can be enjoyed on its own, as some users have already argued. Red Dead Online needs work. But the single-player? It’s best to leave it as it is.
