Red Dead Online public beta set to launch later this month

Take-Two Interactive, the company that owns Rockstar games reported in its quarterly financials that Red Dead Redemption 2 sold over 17 million copies in just over a week.

No real details were given about what the online component will entail, but it is expected to be a much bigger and more involved upgrade on the original Red Dead Redemption's open world.

News about that came out of Take-Two's financial report too, with CEO Strauss Zelnick (chairman of the board at CBS, CNET's parent company) saying the online beta would launch at some point near the end of November. Obviously, that isn't as specific as we'd all like, but it does narrow things down a bit nonetheless.

It's perhaps worth pointing out that murdering suffragettes in Red Dead Redemption 2 actually lowers your Honor rating, while attacking members of the Ku Klux Klan improves it, so there's definitely a message that Rockstar wants to get across.

"It will launch in public beta towards the end of the month and Rockstar will have a lot more to say about it".

If you've played Red Dead Redemption 2, you may have not noticed them.

Quite a few times in Red Dead Redemption 2 you'll ride out on one of the main missions, going quite a distance from your camp, only to have to ride all the way back again once you've completed it.

Rockstar Games is not known for its strong female characters, but Red Dead Redemption has always fared better in that regard than the Grand Theft Auto series.
