Contribution to COVID-19 Relief
Rockstar has also added a couple of lines at the end after mentioning these discounts and offers on the website. These indicate that the company will donate a part of the revenue it gains from the Red Dead Online during the months of April and May 2020 will be donated towards relief efforts and in the fight against the Coronavirus. This may encourage more people from downloading the game and in making purchases within the game.
Most businesses in America have taken a beating due to the lockdown. The number of people negatively impacted by the virus can be seen from the weekly unemployment figures being released. These are unprecedented times, possibly after World War II. The entire nation has time to talk and think about only one subject, the pandemic. The gaming community may think that this is also the time when the demand for their games has gone high.
