Red Dead Online players gather for the game’s sad, sporadic funeral

The day of Red Dead Online’s funeral has come, right on the heels of Rockstar formally killing the game by announcing the end of major updates, and players have gathered online to mourn what the game was and could’ve been. 

The #RedDeadFuneral was first announced earlier this month as a way for the game’s community to protest the neglected state of the multiplayer mode and acknowledge that the revival they were hoping for would never come. It hasn’t gotten a big update in a year, and the last update wasn’t even particularly well-received, so with Rockstar sunsetting the game as it prioritizes GTA 6, it was time to let go.
