Today Rockstar Games announced Red Dead Online, a new online connected experience that will be set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2's enormous open world.

Now that we know the online mode's vague release date, we fully expect to hear more about this mode in the next few weeks.

Rockstar cited their focus on Red Dead Redemption 2's single player and their struggles with launching and maintaining GTA Online in 2013 as reasons for the staggered launch of Red Dead Online.

Even though the game is still about a month away from its formal release, it's already safe to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the biggest video game releases of 2018.




Rockstar said the new online mode would combine story with "competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways". Apparently, they're using GTA Online's Heists as the creative basis to deliver content blending narrative and gameplay. We vaguely plan to stagger the updates of both games so that players can switch between the two, but our development plans may not always allow this!

Borrowing the pseudo standalone nomenclature that GTA Online used after GTA V's release, they're also taking the launch schedule.

What do you make of these new Red Dead Redemption 2 screenshots?

Red Dead Redemption is one of the most impressive virtual worlds we've seen, and you'll be able to experience it up close. This is roughly the same approach Rockstar took to GTA Online, which first arrived a few weeks after GTA 5. Speaking with IGN, Director of Design at Rockstar North Imran Sarwar and Senior Producer of Rockstar San Diego Josh Needleman explained some of their decisions when it came to the mode and how to best implement it. They continued by saying, "Our aim this time is to get there a bit quicker, but still be responsive to what people enjoy playing and evolve as we go". We'll see how it all comes together soon enough, as RDR2's release is almost upon us.
