Creating the best open-world game in the gaming industry is not an easy matter. To realize what Rockstar has achieved with GTA V in the past, for example, we are talking about the movement of thousands of employees and the marketing process that can reach hundreds of millions of USD.
Although in the end it paid off handsomely because of the success achieved with the release of three generations, the same process inevitably had to be repeated when Rockstar started working on GTA VI. The consequences? There is always a project to be sacrificed.
After the previous news that Rockstar had canceled the GTA IV and RDR1 remaster projects to focus on GTA VI, the act of building the latest open-world game series turned out to be another “victim”.
Through their new blog post, Rockstar confirmed that they will scale down teamwork for Red Dead Online in the future as resources will begin to shift to GTA VI. Red Dead Online will no longer get a shot of major and important updates. Meanwhile, GTA Online will continue to be supported as before.
This situation of course made a lot of Red Dead Online gamers disappointed, to the point, they planned to hold a “funeral event” on July 13, 2022 to express their sadness. Many also hope that this event will actually make Rockstar aware of how busy and loyal the Red Dead Online community itself is so that support can continue.
