There were a lot of Grand Theft Auto fans who wanted single-player DLC for V, similar to what we saw with IV, but they have yet to receive any, with Rockstar instead focusing their time and efforts on GTA Online and the constant updates that go with that.
It seems that's the same with Red Dead Redemption II as well, as the mammoth story isn't being bolstered by any expansions, as Rockstar revealed to VG247.
Lead online production associate Katie Pica explained that "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."
"We've said it before, but we all love single-player games, and Red Dead Redemption 2's absolutely massive story and equally massive epilogue are hopefully evidence of that," online producer Tarek Hamad added.
"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."
This comes hot on the heels of speculation that content along the lines of Undead Nightmare could be arriving in the game as well, since players have been spotting seemingly zombified NPCs in-game, and it's coming up to Halloween.
