Red Dead Online Is Outperforming GTA Online


The state of Red Dead Online isn't great right now. The flow of content has been slowly dripping and there's been a host of bugs and performance issues plaguing the experience since it launched. Many have left behind the experience in favor of other games, while its most hardcore community has been vocal about its displeasure. But the online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to be doing quite well. People forget that it took awhile before GTA Online found its footing and started to attract players in mass. In fact, Red Dead Online is outperforming early days GTA Online.

Today during its earnings call, Take-Two Interactive -- parent company of Rockstar Games -- revealed that Red Dead Online is performing better than GTA Online did at the same point in its life cycle. Now, it's unclear how Take-Two Interactive is measuring this. Does it have more players? Is it making more money? It's unclear, but you'd assume it's a combination of these two.

Elsewhere during the financial call, Take-Two Interactive revealed that Red Dead Online will leave beta by the end of the quarter, which means it will be out of beta by the end of June. When it does leave beta, there will presumably be a meaty content drop accompanying it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for PS4 and Xbox One. At the moment of publishing, there's been no official word of a PC port or any other additional ports.
