As riots against social inequality and police violence erupted throughout the United States since George Floyd died. Several game developers and publishers have made public announcements of solidarity.

GTA Online and Red Dead online both are an adventure multiplayer game created by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games.

GTA Online was made public on 1 October 2013 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and was introduced on 18 November 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One, with the launch of Windows on 14 April 2015. This game is an online element of GTA V.

After few months in testing, Red Dead Online was launched on PS4 and Xbox One in May 2019, while on Windows and Stadia in November 2019. Users control a protagonist who is released from prison and charged with revenge in return for their innocence.

Rockstar Games goes offline

Rockstar Games posted that GTA Online and Red Dead Online are going down for 2 hours. In addition to the Rockstar, additional games from 2K Gaming and Social Point will also go off from 2-4 p.m. EDT Thursday. This is done to honor George Floyd. The break corresponds with the Floyd memorial service that will take place in Minneapolis. Floyd’s death sparked national rallies on May 25.

Rockstar accompanied its original message by asking users to support victims of racial inequality by continuing to support a list of civil rights-based charities.

Since Epic Games provided GTA V free for a week, numerous gamers have now started to play the game. Despite only playing offline, players normally prefer playing online mode with their mates.

Rockstar Games is offering $1,000,000 to Amazing Game players when they complete 10 daily goals in online mode.

Keeping games offline for a few hours on a Thursday noon is a gesture, and in terms of material support, 2K Games said that it is raising funds for its 2K Foundations initiative by an additional $1 million and “broadening its mission to help counter racial inequality and disparities in black communities around the world.”
