Rockstar Prepping Major Red Dead Redemption Fix

Rockstar Prepping Major Red Dead Redemption Fix


Though Red Dead Redemption is an amazing game, it does struggle from a number of technical issues that gamers have voiced concern over.

In that light, Rockstar Games came out today and announced that a major fix is coming out for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.

According to Rockstar, the fix is in so to speak, but it is currently undergoing extensive testing before it can be released for the two consoles.  As such, no release date has been targeted, but it is said that it hit ASAP.

Press Release:

We are aware that there are still some of you out there experiencing issues with Red Dead Redemption, including multiplayer connectivity and getting the Mo Van Barr bounty.   We are currently testing a Red Dead Redemption title update for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that aims to fix these and other items.  Due to the unpredictable nature of the testing and console manufacturer submission process, we cannot pin down a very specific date and time, but we do expect this to be released for download for both systems by the end of next week.  We can assure you we are working with our partners at Microsoft and Sony to make this title update available literally as soon as possible.

Once again, we thank everyone for their continued patience and understanding.  As a token of our appreciation for your patience and in gratitude to all the Red Dead fans out there, we are also planning on releasing the Expert Hunter and Savvy Merchant outfits and related challenges later this summer for free.  Please stay tuned for more details on that – as well as on the Outlaws to the End Co-Op Missions DLC Pack coming for free later this month.
