Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online, launched in late November as a beta-and Rockstar had said from the start that players should expect bugs and other oddities.
While there are likely many updates in the pipeline, Rockstar is honing in on the economy for this first major update.
Rockstar has already confirmed that the gold bars are a premium currency that players will be able to buy in the Red Dead Online in-game Store with real money, and Reddit user SwagDaddy70 has drawn the comparison between the game's impending microtransactions and those in mobile games.

The deal still needs to be approved by the shareholders of Hindustan Unilever and GSK India, as well as by Indian regulators. The Transaction is subject to customary regulatory and shareholder approvals, with expected completion in c.12 months.
Gold bars, in case you weren't aware, are going to be used to obtain cosmetic items.
Currently, some players believe that the in-game economy isn't balanced enough.
Another redditor, Sinful_One, reached out to Rockstar to question the rate at which they were earning currency, and the reply didn't do much to quell the ire of the community. One of the concerns raised by players was that there could be the chance of progress and stats being reset since Red Dead Online is now only in a beta version and hasn't yet fully released, but Rockstar Games told people not to be concerned with that while adding that more updates are on the way. Rockstar is planning to get out updates as early as the end of this week, with additional updates on their way in the week to come.
