The launch of “Red Dead Redemption 2” is still a few months away from the recent postponement, but the question has already arisen as to what impact the title will have on support for “GTA 5 Online”. The short version of Strauss Zelnick’s answer: “None”.
Take-Two has a hot potato in the fire with “GTA 5 Online”, which continuously pours money into the publisher’s coffers. This also allows the years between the “GTA” publications to be bridged. This year, “Red Dead Redemption 2” is another game that not only promises high sales, but also brings an online mode with it, which should give off plenty of money.
But what influence will “Red Dead Redemption 2” have on the further support of “GTA 5 Online”? This question has been asked by Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. In a statement to the plans of the coming months, the man confirms that “GTA 5 Online” is not influenced by the launch of the Western blockbuster “Red Dead Redemption 2”. The support should continue unabated. So you can expect new content in “GTA 5 Online” every week after the launch of the Western title.
Of course, another plan would have been surprising, as Take-Two set a record month last December with “GTA 5 Online.” “Rockstar Games has said that they want to continue supporting Grand Theft Auto Online and that support from Grand Theft Auto Online has nothing to do with the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2. These are different projects and they are treated independently” Zelnick.
