I played the online for about...10 hours or so, and I was surprised by how few people were on. You’d think the Xbone version being on Gamepass would of helped, but no. Once you do the 2 campaigns a lot of the tasks seem really quite arbitrary and dull.

Rockstar abandoned RDR2 online because GTA online is such a cash cow.

Got to chapter 2. Very impressed so far.

Controls are a little fiddly, I don't think I'm riding my horse correctly and I don't understand the stamina system.

There was a marketing budget released recently, and it showed a massive spike in 2023 which people have taken to mean that's when GTAVI will be released.

Or 2023 will be when they announce the first trailer for VI, and it'll launch in 2025.

I think there was a ramp up in 2022, with the peak being 2023, which might indicate trailer in '22. But pretty much all big games seem to get delayed these days so 2025 is probably realistic.

Wasn't there also confirmation that Online's success led to the cancellation of several planned story DLCs a la GTA IV?

I'm actually back playing RDR2 and, fiddly though it is, it's still one of the most remarkable games ever made imo. If Cyberpunk comes close to emulating the feeling of place and presence this game has on the scale it's going for it'll be something special indeed.

Supposedly they were going to do a Undead Nightmare esque zombie mode and an Ocean's 11 Casino heist as single player DLC. The latter got repurposed for Online.

Theres a lot to take in at the start, but, it just takes a bit of time to get used to it. You'll soon be riding like a cowboy! (ahem).

It really does just drop you straight into it, doesn’t it? Genius, or madness?
I thought The Wire did that too. So there we go - RDR2 is The Wire of gaming.
