His refusal to make predictions was in response to a question about how Mr Zelnick expected the launch of Red Dead Online to compare to GTA Online.
Grand Theft Auto V is still selling well, and Grand Theft Auto Online is exceeding company expectations even ahead of Red Dead Redemption 2's release. However, with Take-Two being, at the end of the day, the taskmasters behind Rockstar's properties, it's an extreme likelihood that RDR Online cross-play will come to both PS4 and Xbox One by 2019 or 2020. It's going to be insane at launch with many players looking to get right into beta. I suppose it's always possible the player could join one of the six other gangs shown in the story mode, but they sucked so I don't see why you'd want to. Set in the RDR2 game world, it's described as an evolution of the original game's multiplayer experience.
The most infamous have been from YouTuber Shirrako, who posted such charmingly named videos as "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Beating up annoying feminist" and "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Deporting A Mexican".
