Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most critically acclaimed games released this generation but despite the success, it won’t get any single-player DLC.
There have been some rumors around Red Dead Redemption 2 that it might end up getting a single-player focused DLC. Some of the theories suggest a story focused on Aliens or Zombies, just like its predecessor. In an interview with VG247, lead online production associate for Rockstar Games, Katie Pica has confirmed that they currently don’t have any plans for it.
Speaking about the Red Dead Online content updates, she said: “We’re 100% focused on online right now, because like I said, there’s just so much to do, and we’re just hoping to bring everything that a player can love about single-player into the online world, and fleshed out.”
This is coming straight from an official source so it is hard to ignore this statement. The success of GTA Online pretty much made it impossible for Rockstar Games to ignore it and they never ended up releasing any single-player DLC for Grand Theft Auto V, even though it was rumored and speculated to hell and beyond.
It appears that Rockstar Games might continue doing the same with Red Dead Online where they will keep adding new content through updates. They will try to keep the player base engaged and make money with microtransactions, just like they achieved success with this business model in Grand Theft Auto Online.
Currently, Rockstar Games has started working on their next project which is reportedly going to launch on next-generation of consoles. The details around this project are not confirmed but some rumors suggest it could be Bully 2, while others hint at Grand Theft Auto 6. There are also suggesting that the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is happening soon.
