We hope you are enjoying roaming the countryside in Red Dead Redemption. I’ve been playing the game for a few hours and I am enjoying it immensely. I decided to take a break from the campaign and jump into multiplayer with a couple friends. Our plan was to start a posse, jump on our donkeys and do whatever we liked. It’s too bad we could not thoroughly enjoy ourselves because we were plagued with bugs and other issues.
We all purchased Red Dead on Xbox 360. The problem with multiplayer is that there are far too many glitches. There are some minor issues such as weapons and hats disappearing, but we’ve also experienced lost connections at an alarming rate. After visiting a few message boards around the web, I learned these issues are not isolated. There are numerous accounts of network errors and players suddenly becoming invisible. There have also been an instance where I was sent back to the Xbox 360 dashboard without warning.
We understand Rockstar’s servers are probably being overloaded right now due to the high volume of players trying to connect at the same time. We just wanted to let you all to know that your problems are not due to your internet connections. We’ll contact Rockstar Games and try to see if a fix is in the works and when it will become available.
