Rockstar moving on from development of Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar seems to be officially moving on from Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online in the newest update for the game.

A new update for Red Dead Online added extra content to the game. That content includes new missions, some quality of life changes and bug fixes. It comes after a long period of little content being added to the game.

Unlike GTA 5, which has been receiving updates almost a decade after release, Red Dead Online has been somewhat neglected by Rockstar. Clearly, it hasn’t been as big of a money-maker as its modern-day counterpart. Now, Rockstar is finishing up with the game in order to move onto their next project, GTA 6.

We still don’t know much about GTA 6, but we do know that Rockstar is now moving staff over to work on the game. It’s still in early development, and it could be a long time before we get a proper look at it. However, some have speculated that an announcement could be imminent.

Roll Credits

In addition, a new message has been added to the credits, along with a link to the credits in the pause menu. The message reads “Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped create Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.”

The message is very similar to a message added to GTA 5 and GTA Online. Rockstar said “we want to acknowledge and thank everyone who has contributed to these games, from their original launch in 2013 all the way through to present day.” Clearly the team is moving on from these titles and looking forwards to the future.


That future is GTA 6, one of the most anticipated games of all time. GTA 5 is still going strong almost a decade on, and GTA 6 is bound to be another huge success.
