Given the enormous size and scope of the game, Rockstar expects Red Dead Online to experience "some turbulence at launch", but looks forward to "working with our awesome and dedicated community to share ideas, help us fix teething problems and work with us to develop Red Dead Online into something really fun and innovative". Like the single player game's story of Arthur Morgan, we want people to settle into their online characters and feel like every activity makes sense for the character, the setting and the time.

Will it be as big as GTA Online? You can pre-order the game off of Amazon right now if you'd like. "This should feel intimate and personal while still feeling fun and action-packed from moment to moment".
