Red Dead Redemption 2 Online: Good news for RDR2 fans as Rockstar rules out purge

A new Red Dead Redemption 2 Online update is being primed for release later this week by the development team.

This will include some big changes to the game which will hopefully help to rebalance the current in-game economy.

PS4 and Xbox One players have been providing plenty of feedback on how Rockstar could improve RDR2 Online, making missions more rewarding is one of them.

The problem players have with the current system is that everything worth buying is expensive and will take a long time to collect.

This isn’t the only criticism of the online mode, but it is something Rockstar is hoping to tackle this week.

It’s good to know that things will be changing quickly in RDR2 Online, and it appears Rockstar has revealed some other great news.

Red Dead Online is currently in beta, which suggests that certain things could be temporary.

Traditional beta tests run for a short a time and usually see all player progress wiped out by the end.

Rockstar has confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 multiplayer is in beta testing but will be different in one significant way.

While updates and tweaks will be made in the coming weeks, Rockstar Games are not planning on wiping any player progress.

This is after a post last week, which confirmed that something like this could technically happen if required.

“We hope that all player progress during this early period of the Beta will be able to remain intact long term, however as with many betas for large-scale online experiences such as this, there is always the chance that we may need to implement rank or other stat resets in case of issues.”

A new statement from Rockstar confirms that they have no plans to do this and are mainly focused on those new changes coming this week.

“We appreciate all the continued feedback we are receiving on the Red Dead Online beta,” the Rockstar message reads.

“For players concerned about the potential for progress and stat resets, we currently do not have any plans to reset them as part of the beta rollout.

“We are currently still working on game stability and economy rebalancing for an update that we hope to release later this week.

“Please stay tuned for more news to come.”

There is no word on when this new Red Dead Online update will be released and what exactly it will contain.

It’s unlikely to include a lot of new content, although, there is a chance that more missions will be added soon.

As mentioned above, Rockstar Games are planning to tweak the online economy, so fans will need to check for when the download goes live.

More news could be shared by the development team in the coming days for Red Dead Redemption 2 Online.
