Rockstar responds after Red Dead Online update causes game-breaking glitches

Rockstar Games are working on a fix after a recent Red Dead Online update caused a myriad of hilarious glitches with players.
Rockstar responds after Red Dead Online update causes game-breaking glitches

A recent Red Dead Online patch was supposed to fix issues surrounding the naturalist update, although it seems to have caused a whole wealth of comical bugs within the wild west. 

Following the patch, many players began reporting issues, including the disappearance of characters and animals, being unable to shoot entirely, and flickering horses. 

Developer Rockstar has since released a statement, acknowledging the issue and confirming they’re working on a fix - although it’s unclear exactly when the problem will be resolved.

“We are aware some players may currently be expirencing a range of issues as a result of yesterday’s RDR2 Title Update,’ the Rockstar Support Twitter account wrote.

“We are currently developing fixes to address these and will share more information as it is available.”

The lack of updates rolled out for Red Dead Online sparked clown protests from players last month, so hopefully it won’t be too long before this is addressed.

In the meantime, there’s a whole host of comical clips to enjoy, ranging from players unable to shoot, randomly appearing trains and more. 

Perhaps the most bizarre is the appearance of a random bald character who seems to have appeared for many players - prompting all kinds of theories and speculation over his identity. 

An undercover Rockstar dev? The mystery thickens. 

The issues with Red Dead Online coincide with a recent update to GTA Online, which introduced new co-op missions and vehicles.
