The team from Rockstar has taken to the official site with a new blog post that is aimed at thanking the community for staying with the company throughout a year that was unlike any other. The devs also thanked the players for the feedback and the successes of the company’s titles, in particular GTA Online and Red Dead Online.
“Whether it was plotting an offshore raid on a fortified tropical island or documenting the wonders of the frontier’s animal kingdom, it has been incredible to see the community come together as we continued to expand and evolve both GTA Online and Red Dead Online.
The feedback has been incredible, and we are grateful to everyone who played with us in what we are extremely humbled to say was yet another record-breaking year for both games.”
GTA Online beat its own records once again, proudly boasting more players than any previous year. Red Dead Online also experienced more players and welcomed new members of the community.
The launch of The Cayo Perico Heist broke new ground by allowing players to venture solo, adding a new dimension eagerly embraced by the community. Just over half of everyone who raided El Rubio’s compound deciding to go it alone.
To celebrate the occasion, Rockstar decided to extend the special bundle of gifts available for recent Red Dead Online players. The bundle includes a free Horse, free Stable Slot, 5,000 Club XP, and more. In GTA Online, jump in and play until February 12th to unlock a few unique pieces of in-game apparel — the Rockstar Cap and Rockstar Rolling Tee, both of which will be delivered to your wardrobe next week. Gifts will arrive within 72 hours after logging in on February 16th.
