Yes, the headline is correct. Zombies have been showing up in Red Dead Online.
In case you were wondering, no we are not talking about the recent dead animal glitch. Rather, this unusual feature seems to be effecting people in Red Dead Online. Creepy!

The zombies, which players have been snapping pictures of and posting to Reddit and Twitter, appear to have glowing eyes and pale, blue-ish wrinkled skin. Games Radar have reported the zombies seem to be appearing around the town of Armadillo. This is interesting as in Red Dead Redemption 2, Armadillo is the town which has seen disease outbreak. Most notably, the Cholera outbreak found during the epilogue of the game. With this in mind, could this be some form of Undead Nightmare 2 teaser? Many fans have been speculating this could be the case.
However, it’s worth taking this with a pinch of salt. Rockstar have made no official announcement, at the time of this article, regarding any Undead Nightmare 2 content. With that being said, it would be an excellent tease and update if this were to happen!
With October just around the corner, the month of Halloween, it would be the perfect time for Rockstar to release Undead Nightmare 2 to Red Dead Online or as a DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2.
However, as I stated earlier, until we receive solid confirmation from Rockstar Games themselves, take it with a pinch of salt. In the meantime though, it’s always fun to speculate.
