Company meetings are rarely interrupted by revolver shots, at least in today's world. Unless they take place in Red Dead Online.

As the author Viviane Schwarz explains via Twitter, she has her Editorial meetings moved to the Western MMO. According to her detailed description, it was a good decision, even if “the game sometimes forgets that the camp exists” or better “she shouldn't edit shared Google documents” while she rides the horse quickly.

“Zoom is annoying, we've started holding editorial meetings in Red Dead Redemption instead. It's nice to discuss projects around the campfire while the wolves howl at night.”

Many enthusiastic voices: Many Twitter users are impressed by the meetings in Red Dead Redemption 2: The tweet reaches over one hundred thousand “Like” details. Even developer Rockstar has left a heart under Viviane Schwarz's tweet.

It doesn't have to be Read Dead: From now on, some commentators also want to hold their company meetings in RDO or Minecraft to counteract the dry atmosphere of Skype, Zoom and Co.

Difficult entrances and cool exits

As Viviane Schwarz explains, the participants have to first complete the introductory missions of Red Dead Onlinebefore they are released into the open game world and can take part in the meeting. Of course, this is a bit more complex than installing an app like Skype or Zoom – not to mention the installation of the huge game.

However, according to the author, it is worth taking this hurdle, despite the surprising problems that can arise. Of course, Red Dead Online is primarily a game that is not intended for business meetings. That's why happen too unforeseen thingsthat can be very entertaining at times.

“The biggest technical problems we had: sometimes the meeting table does not exist for all players. In addition, the button for sitting on the floor is the same as for trying to strangle the next person. Still better than zoom. “

Not only before and during the meeting, Red Dead Online differs significantly from the conservative media. The western-style exits also look good:

“When the meeting is over, everyone can jump on their horses and commit crime or justice, which is much less embarrassing than smiling at the camera while trying to log out,” explains Schwarz.
