Fans Red Dead Redemption 2 are puzzled by a new Steam award: “The game has not received major updates for a long time”

Red Dead Redemption 2 received a new Steam award, but fans are not sure that she really deserves her. Rockstar Games releases one of the best games, but the studio is also known for not in a hurry. In the 2000s, Rockstar released games annually. After Grand Theft Auto 5, the release of new projects slowed down significantly, since the studio began to invest more and more forces and resources in its games. GTA Online took resources, but Red Dead Redemption 2 also required a lot of attention. As a result, she became the only new Rockstar game released in the PS4/Xbox One generation, as well as, perhaps, her best game today.

Red Dead Redemption 2 showered praise over the past five years, and she deserved them. She has an incredible story, a rich open world, exciting gameplay and, quite possibly, one of the most detailed and plausible worlds in games. However, Red Dead Redemption 2 received a Steam award yesterday, which fans look at bewilderment. Steam issued a bunch of awards for 2023, for which the fans voted, and Red Dead Redemption 2 received a reward "Favorite child". If this award were awarded in 2018 or 2019, when the game reached the PC, it would be logical. However, in 2023, fans were a little confused. Red Dead Redemption 2 in November and December survived a large surge of the number of players in Steam thanks to the sale, so many are now getting to know the game for the first time. However, it is the description of the award that causes disputes among fans:

"This game has been released for a long time", – The description is said. "The team has long survived the debut of their creative child, but, being good parents, these developers continue to cherish and support their creation. This game to this day, after so many years, continues to receive new content".

The online mode Red Dead Redemption 2 stopped receiving large content updates several years ago: Rockstar Games officially confirmed that it will no longer release major updates in the summer of 2022. In the game, the playlists and other small additions and other small additions are rare, but it is unlikely that this is something that makes the players return to it. Especially compared to GTA Online, which is already ten years old, and she still gets huge updates, Red Dead Online has not been able to completely reveal its potential due to the intense development of Grand Theft Auto 6. In this regard, fans are in some confusion.

Red Dead Redemption 2 & Red Dead Online received the main award of Steam Award for the constant support of the game by the developer. Since July 2021, the game has not been a single major content supplement. In addition to several small sets of missions for telegrams, as well as seasonal additions to Call to Arms cards

Being good parents, these developers continue to support their creation. This game to this day, after so many years, continues to receive new content". You mean weekly events.

Rockstar completely failed after launch. RDO was abandoned without any warning. It was not updated for PS5 and Xbox Series XLS.
