As with Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games currently has no plans to release single-player DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2.
In an interview with VG24/7, Rockstar developers confirmed the news, explaining that the studio will focus entirely on content for the game’s online multiplayer mode for the foreseeable future.
“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,” lead online production designer Katie Pica explained.
Expanding on this, online producer Tarek Hamad stressed the team’s love of single-player experiences, hoping to reflect that in Red Dead Online.
“The team’s ambitions for Red Dead Redemption 2 were sky high in every way, and when we are building worlds of that scale, the single-player experience almost always leads the way. Our ambitions for our online games are just as high, and with Red Dead Online we are continuing to build and expand to match the world we created for Red Dead Redemption 2’s story, not just with the roles but other activities, new random events, characters to meet, new ways to engage with the world and further inhabit your character, as well as trying to improve the overall experience.”
Though fans of Red Dead Redemption 2’s single-player content may be disappointed by this news, promises to make Red Dead Online just as engaging provide some comfort that the single-player experience is not being neglected altogether.
Red Dead Redemption 2, received a High Distinction (5/5) from OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns, who described it as “one of the greatest games ever made.” The game is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though rumours of a PC release have been circling for some time.
