Since its release in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) has enamoured gamers worldwide, showcasing a captivating story, a robust world filled with diverse activities, and a significant improvement over its predecessor. Yet, fans have been left yearning for more, specifically in the form of single-player Downloadable Content (DLC). This demand has been amplified by the perceived discrepancy in post-launch support between RDR2 and another flagship title from Rockstar Games, GTA Online.
The desire for single-player DLC has culminated in a Change.org petition, initiated by a fan named Ivan Ojeda. The petition underlines the fanbase’s craving for additional RDR2 content, with Ojeda asserting, “We want Red Dead Redemption 2 single-player DLCs. It doesn’t have to be free.” His appeal echoes the sentiment of many gamers who are willing to pay for quality content that expands the narrative scope of this beloved game.

The petition, as of now, has garnered close to 10,000 signatures, revealing substantial support among the game’s dedicated players for additional content. This figure reflects the sustained popularity of RDR2 and the commitment of its fans to enhance the gaming experience, even if it comes with an associated cost.
However, the question remains whether this outpouring of fan support will result in action from those holding the reins. Despite the obvious demand, the article underlines the general scepticism surrounding the potential impact of such petitions on the decisions made by the key stakeholders – the game’s developer, Rockstar Games, and publisher, Take-Two Interactive.

Fans fondly remember the “Undead Nightmare” expansion for the original Red Dead Redemption game, a successful 2010 release that added a unique spin to the western frontier setting by introducing a zombie apocalypse. This DLC is often cited as an example of the type of content the RDR2 community is eagerly awaiting.
In the interim, while waiting for official DLCs, some fans have taken matters into their own hands. A fan-made version of the “Undead Nightmare” for RDR2 has surfaced, serving as a testament to the creativity of the community and their passion for the game. As the wait for official content continues, such fan-created projects provide some solace and further fuel the discussion around future DLCs for Red Dead Redemption 2
