Despite a huge success, Red Dead Redemption is facing fan protests for extra content. Since its release back in 2018, RDR-2 has yet to receive any expansions or DLC. Since its inception, Red Dead Redemption-2 has met many critics and some fans even claimed that it was the last game that really blew them away.
Despite endless requests from the fans, Rockstar Gamings are tight-lipped. This allows the modders to take over, and bring new ideas and development to the game. Eg: a recent mod allowed the user to run their own gun store.
However, the fans are not easy to surrender. They have started a petition on change.org calling for a “single-player Red Dead Redemption 2 DLC”. The petition currently has over 11,000 signatures out of a goal of 15,000 signatures, calling for a DLC stating, “Let’s get our voices heard. We want Red Dead Redemption 2 single-player DLC. It doesn’t have to be free.”
The petition didn’t take much time to popularize. The fans are not interested in microtransactions instead they are interested in paying for single-player DLC. Of course, most of the fans are waiting for more DLC content that doesn’t even have to be about the main characters from RDR2’s campaign if it somehow affects the plans for Red Dead Redemption 3.
It’ll be a debate if Rockstar Gaming will listen to its fan base. Fans often agree on the fact that RDR-2 is one of the best games they have ever played. According to many fans, they are willing to pay an extra $20–30 for new single-player content or even $60 for something very robust.
But currently, Rockstar Gaming is working in GTA-VI. They deflected from their initial plans about the game after the launch of Starfield. Now Rockstar Gaming is busy incorporating the ‘1000 planet’ concept into the game which requires a lot of time, capital, and attention. This could be a reason Rockstar Gaming is not interested in releasing any DLC content for RDR2.
