GTA Online has been a huge success for Rockstar Games and since Red Dead Online is coming, one wonders what will happen to GTA? Well, speaking in a recent interview, Rockstar confirmed that it will continue to support GTA Online for the foreseeable future.
Red Dead Online won’t end support for GTA Online so expect new content updates. However, GTA Online won’t be supported for long it seems. From what we can gather, it seems developers want to focus more on Red Dead Online and may not support GTA Online for too long. They plan to stagger the updates for both games to allow players to switch between the two.
But their development model may not allow them to actually fulfill these plans.
We still have big plans for Grand Theft Auto Online and we will continue to roll out updates for the foreseeable future. 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!
We think there will be a lot to love about Red Dead Online for fans of Grand Theft Auto Online, but we think that Red Dead Online will generate its own audience ready for something entirely new – however, exactly what form Red Dead Online will take as it finds it’s feet, we are not sure ourselves, but we think really want a focus on role-playing and morality. That may all change as the game comes out, but that’s the direction we are heading in now! And we are going to be working together on that with our incredible community to make this online experience into something amazing.
Red Dead Online learns a lot of GTA Online and one can consider it a clone of GTA. There are many elements taken from GTA Online that would drive Red Dead’s multiplayer portion.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is releasing on October 26 while the multiplayer mode won’t be available at release.
