Following weeks of virtually no updates from Rockstar Games when it comes to Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2), we now have gotten three patches in a span of two weeks! Rockstar Games has released the RDR2 update 1.22 August 13 patch, and as one might expect, it’s purely for fixes brought on by patch 1.21!
RDR2 Update 1.22 August 13 patch notes and changes:
In case you didn’t know this week’s Red Dead Redemption 2 update brought in a few issues in tow, which included connection problems, low animal spawns and more. Here’s the official message from Rockstar:
Question: Why were there issues with Red Dead Online including connection problems, low animal spawns and others?
Answer: An update to Red Dead Online intended to provide security improvements and address connection errors unintentionally introduced a range of issues including connection problems, low animal spawn counts, difficulty pitching Camps, entering Moonshine shacks as well as others on PS4 and Xbox One. We have reverted back to the previous version on those platforms, initially launched on July 28. This should address these recent issues and restore stability – meanwhile we will continue to work to eliminate any remaining issues through future updates.
Note that this was tweeted out by the official Rockstar Support Twitter account, and mentioned that a fix is being developed as well:
We are aware some players may currently be experiencing a range of issues as a result of yesterday's RDR2 Title Update. We are currently developing fixes to address these and will share more information as it is available. For more details please visit https://t.co/nb2Oy0CXCs

Hopefully, the connection issues are sorted out with this new RDR2 update. If in case it isn’t, and if Rockstar releases official notes, we’ll update the post.
