A Red Dead Redemption 2 player with almost 6,000 hours of game-time on the Google Stadia has been thrown a lifeline by Rockstar – meaning they won’t lose their data as the Google Stadia’s services next year. The Youtuber, who goes by the moniker, Colour, reached out to Rockstar following Google’s announcement, urging the studio to find a way to transfer his data to another platform. In response, Rockstar has lent a helping hand to the Youtuber, agreeing to assist Colour and others with valuable game-time at risk from Stadia’s closure.
In a Twitter post, Colour announced that Rockstar had contacted him, confirming that “all active Stadia players who played Red Dead Online within the 30 days prior to Stadia announcing their shutdown will be able to carry over any earned RDO$, Gold Bars, XP, Role XP, and Role Tokens” to another platform.

These include the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players will need to ensure their preferred game account is linked to their Rockstar Social Club account. Understandably, the Youtuber was delighted with the news and shared a follow-up tweet on Twitter to Rockstar’s message.
“I doubt this would have been possible if it weren’t for all of the creators and gaming journalists that picked up my story and raised awareness,” Colour said. “I have all of you to thank as you have helped save an entire community of players from losing all their online progress,” they added.
As of September 29, 2022, the Youtuber had amassed a staggering 5,907 hours of game-time in Red Dead 2 on the Stadia, sharing a screenshot of their progress via Twitter. For more Red Dead Redemption 2 content, including details on the recent 1.31 patch update, then stay tuned with GameLuster.
