Red Dead Raptured

Red Dead Online has released its latest patch today, which was fairly substantial and added some new content for players to sink their teeth into. Instead of that, the players received what could be best described as a broken game.

For those who want a quick TLDR: the game got Raptured. There's apparently no animals, few to no NPC's, and players are left to explore a post-Rapture Red Dead Online world, which is pretty interesting now that I think about it, but definitely not what players were expecting.

It's not a case of asking what has been broken, but asking what is actually working at the moment. It's that bad.

Don't believe me? Here's another one for good measure:

So the question is this: what on Earth happened? To go from a polished experience enjoyed by millions to what looks like a Alpha release is shocking, especially when you consider that this is Rockstar, the studio famous for working on games for 5-8 years on titles in order to get them perfect. That they would go around and release an update like this almost defies comprehension. Something catastrophic occurred, and it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

There are some trying to help, with a Reddit post on the Subreddit Red Dead Online listing the Known Bugs & Issues of the title. This includes basic things such as save data being corrupted on the PS4, Alt + tabbing causing a crash to desktop on PC's, the Bounty Board can no longer be interacted with, animals aren't spawning, fast traveling crashes the game… it just goes on and on for basic features that need to work.
