Rockstar is Bribing GTA Online Players on Red Dead Redemption 2 Pre-Order

Rockstar looks to be trying to cover two bases at once as they're essentially bribing GTA Online players to pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2. The company announced today that it is officially offering players $1 million dollars of in-game currency if they pre-order the game with their account. It's a brilliant but blatant attempt to get players active in both games. By bribing GTA Online players with free in-game money, they're trying to kill two birds with one stone by keeping that community active as a new game gets released and trying their best to prevent people from abandoning it altogether while they play RDR2, while simultaneously bringing up sales and pre-sale numbers up for their upcoming title. Rockstar is also offering many reward opportunities in the game, as well, which you can read about at the link above.
