Red Dead Online exiting beta ‘by end of June’

Full release planned “with significant new content to follow”

Red Dead Redemption 2’s online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online, is expected to exit open beta by the end of June.

Speaking during Take-Two’s fourth quarter and full year earnings call, CEO Strauss Zelnick also said the title will be supported with major new content.

Rockstar Games continues to update the beta with a wide array of new content as well as gameplay balancing and bug fixes,” the executive said.

“We expect Red Dead Online to exit the beta period during the current quarter with significant new content to follow.

“We’re as excited as ever about the long-term opportunity for Red Dead Online,” Zelnick added.

Rockstar said in March that the next major Red Dead Online update would arrive in the spring of 2019.

Among other features, it will include a new hostility system, offensive and defensive playing style options, fresh missions and dynamic events.

Elsewhere on the earnings call, Take-Two said Red Dead Redemption 2 has now shipped over 24 million units worldwide since its release in October 2018.

The publisher’s net revenue for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019 was $2.67 billion, with recurrent consumer spending (virtual currency, add-on content and in-game purchases) in titles such as Red Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto Online accounting for 40% of the total.
