Red Dead Online, the live service component of Red Dead Redemption 2, is currently mired with controversy. Players have been asking Rockstar Games to deliver new meaningful online content for quite some time now. Faithful player went so far as to launch a Save Red Dead Online social media campaign.

While fans may be disappointed, Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two isn't.

GTA 6 will assuredly have its own version of GTA Online, or possibly even integrate into the existing GTA Online infrastructure, but remember that Take-Two Interactive just merged with Zynga, a company that's well-known for delivering online-driven mobile experiences.
