Red Dead 2 Online's Economy Isn't Right, Rockstar Admits; Updates Coming Soon

The pricing is also coming under fire, with Reddit user ConvictedWaffles reporting that a gold wedding ring sells for less than a can of beans. You should expect to see some changes in an update at the end of this week, with more to come next week.

Rockstar Games took to the official "Red Dead Redemption 2" website to offer a status update on the "Red Dead Online" beta on Monday, promising it would fix the game's out of balance in-game economy.

Much of the fan feedback has been focused on the in-game economy, which hands out small rewards for a lot of hard work.

Rockstar detailed that the gold bars will be used to purchase cosmetic items in the Red Dead Online in-game Store, which will also include microtransactions when its up and running. As such, the developer's looking to keep things ticking with consistent updates, the next of which will launch as early as this week. Based on the wording of the status update, it seems these imminent patches will address the "persistent bugs" first, like players being booted from game sessions.




"The game has been developed so that we will be able to quickly make any adjustments like these", Rockstar said.

Some players feel the time cost of earning gold bars is prohibitive because developer Rockstar would prefer people spend real money on them.

It is now unclear whether this reworking will extend to Red Dead Online's gold bar system.
