Red Dead Redemption


 

We don’t yet have an exact date for the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Red Dead Online, but publisher Take-Two Interactive has at least offered us a general window.

Since Red Dead Online was first announced, fans have known it was launching sometime in November, but in a recent earnings call, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick promised that the multiplayer experience would drop “toward the end of the month.” This isn’t as specific as fans were hoping for, but it’s better than nothing.

We also know hardly anything about how Red Dead Online will play, outside of what we can extrapolate from Grand Theft Auto Online and the previous game’s multiplayer. The publisher described the generality of what players can expect from the mode during the earnings call, but again, specifics were meager.

Red Dead Online is an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative game-play in fun new ways,” said Take-Two president, Karl Slatoff. “Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players.”

While not confirmed by Rockstar, fans may know a bit more about the new mode thanks to a recent data mine. The leak teases a variety of vehicles and properties players can purchase in the multiplayer experience, similar to how GTA Online operated.

In an attempt to avoid the train wreck that was GTA Online‘s initial launch, Red Dead Online will first release in beta form for all players to test out before it launches in a finished form at a later date.
