Red Dead Redemption 2 Online is slowly growing when it comes to the content available on PS4 and Xbox One.
And in a new interview, Rockstar Games have teased some of the big features that under consideration for the game.
The good news is that Heists, the multiplayer events from Grand Theft Auto Online that proved so popular with fans, could come to RDR2 Online in the future.
The bad news is that Rockstar Games are fully focused on fleshing out their content plans, including the newly added roles that launched earlier this month.
But that doesn’t mean big group activities won’t eventually arrive in Red Dead Online, tailored to the game’s strengths.
Speaking to VG247, lead open-world designer Scott Butchard teased some of the studio’s future plans, including things that are under consideration.
“That’s another one we’ve definitely discussed, and we’ve batted around ideas of how that could work,” Butchard commented when discussing Heists.
“It’s an exciting prospect, as well. I think we need to take a look at it once we’ve moved past of this initial stage of these roles, and how we’re going to develop these in the now, and see where we can take the heists in the future.
“We don’t want to jump too far, too soon. We want everyone to experience the same journey, not too quickly. We don’t want them at the finish line too soon, wanting the next thing.”
Other aspects of the game that have proven popular is the random events fans run into across the map.
And it appears gamers online can expect more to start appearing in Red Dead Redemption 2.
This follows the mysterious appearance of zombies on the map some players have reported in recent weeks.
Rockstar Games weren’t able to offer more news on these rumours but did offer some great updates regarding the future of these kinds of events in multiplayer.
“Anyone who’s taken a detour off the beaten path in Red Dead Redemption 2 will know the world has quite a few unexplained phenomena, and that’s something we’re keen to continue with in Red Dead Online, but we don’t have anything specific to share on that right now,” Butchard tells VG247.
“Undead Nightmare was one incredibly fun idea we did with the original Red Dead Redemption, and we’ve been having fun with GTA Online every year at Halloween, but there are so many possibilities and opportunities there that we haven’t begun to dig into just yet.”
As highlighted in a post on Reddit, a zombie-like woman has been spotted in the game’s swamp area.
It hasn’t been explained why this character exists and there doesn’t seem to be a way to interact with the NPC.
The appearance of the zombie has sparked speculation that, with Halloween around the corner, Rockstar could have a spooky RDR2 event lined-up.
Undead Nightmare was a standalone expansion for the original Red Dead Redemption but it appears that Online gameplay will remain the focus for Rockstar Games in the near future.
