Red Dead Online players have been reporting a series of strange glitches that have rendered the game “unplayable.” The glitches, which seem to only be affecting Xbox One players, result in all NPCs and animals disappearing from the game.
Some of the issues include horses not spawning when you call them, no animals to hunt and none of the townsfolk to interact with. Some players are even complaining that the game just crashes when they try to play.
Over on Twitter, players are expressing their disappointment at what’s been happening.

People are pretty mad at Rockstar right now, with hundreds of users taking to social media to vent their frustration.

So far there’s been no official comment from Rockstar, but the game’s next update is set to launch at the end of this week. Hopefully there’ll be a fix for Xbox One players…
For now, there are some workarounds that players have reportedly found success with.
You can’t just auto tweet the same thing every time someone has the same problem. You know what the problem is and decided to act stupid til the 26th until the update comes out. pic.twitter.com/GyL1DiCGBi
