    Normally, when you log into Rockstar’s wild west game, there should be around 30 or so Red Dead Online players roaming the world with you. It is, after all, a multiplayer game. But, if you’ve booted it up recently, you might have entered a barren wasteland — at least when it comes to other actual humans.

    According to a handful of Red Dead Online players who spoke to Polygon over Discord, Red Dead Online lobbies have shrunk down considerably following an Aug. 24 update that, in addition to adding new content, lists “stability and security” fixes. Rockstar did not respond for a request for comment, but similar reports have surfaced elsewhere.

    One player tells Polygon that they recently entered a game with only two people in it, which might sound bad, except the small player count seems to be helping Red Dead Online. The MMO-lite has had a rough year, with issues so far-ranging that, at one point, it was nearly impossible to do anything in the game. The Western has also had trouble keeping itself populated with animals and NPCs, and every time Rockstar tries to fix it, something else seems to break.

    But right now, with tiny player lobbies? Things actually seem to work, fans say.
