Rockstar Games have stated there are no plans for single-player dlc in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Thanks to a recent interview by VG24/7, we now have solid confirmation that single-player dlc won’t be coming to Red Dead Redemption 2. “We’re 100% focused on online right now” said Lead Production Associate Katie Pica. This news is sure to disappoint fans who were hoping for more single-player story. Pica goes on to say “we’re just hoping to bring everything that a player can love about single-player into the online world.”
Fans have been speculating the recent zombie sightings in Red Dead Online were a hint that Undead Nightmare 2 could be coming soon. If these online zombie sightings are in fact a nod to this, then we can expect any content to be online only. Mirroring what we’ve seen with GTA V and it’s online mode.
Grand Theft Auto: Online has seen massive success over the years. With estimates stating the online mode has made around $6 billion for Rockstar. With this in mind, it’s not a surprise they would try to adopt the same tactic for Red Dead Redemption 2.
Furthermore, Rockstar haven’t released any single-player dlc since 2010’s Red Dead Redemption. While many hoped the slow pace of RDR2’s story would have mean’t single-player dlc would be coming for the game, the fact is there is simply too much money in online gaming. It’s also worth mentioning, since the recent Frontier Update and the addition of Legendary Bounties things have been on the up for Red Dead Online.
