As always, we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the update, which obviously does more than convey the patch notes. How much more we don’t know. You’d assume if there was something important it would be outlined, but again, the above solution is pretty noteworthy and it’s not marked so who knows what’s going on.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game is also playable on PS5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, but only through backward compatibility. There’s still no word that the game will be coming to these platforms via a proper port by default. Click here for more information on the Rockstar Games title. In the meantime, as always, feel free to leave a comment or two to let us know what you think. Are you still playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and/or Red Dead online in 2023?
