Public access to Red Dead Online will be available to anyone that owns Red Dead Redemption 2 from November 30. This rollout method will help Rockstar “ease into the beta and to mitigate major issues.” The studio is being very candid about potential performance issues, saying that the beta is “the first step in what will be a continually expanding and dynamic world.”
Rockstar is expecting the “inevitable turbulence of launching any online experience of this size and scale” and it is asking the Red Dead Redemption 2 community to report any issues and share their feedback so that Rockstar can shape the experience with them in mind.
