Rockstar Games launches their next big thing, Red Dead Redemption 2, next year, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be abandoning their current big thing, Grand Theft Auto Online. Support for the ultra-profitable GTA Online will continue indefinitely, and it seems the game will cross over with Red Dead Redemption 2 in interesting ways.

GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist launches today, and modders have already found evidence of a “treasure hunt” quest in the update’s code, which will reward players with a special Red Dead Redemption gun. More interesting still, completing the GTA Online mission will also net you the weapon in Red Dead Redemption 2. A detailed description of the treasure hunt has even been found in the code:

“Because sometimes revenge is a dish best served six times, in quick succession, right between the eyes. Sign up to the Rockstar Games Social Club to get access to the Double Action Revolver Head Shot Challenge. This challenge will unlock GTA$ and an exclusive variation of the weapon in Red Dead Redemption 2.”

Could this be the fist of many similar crossovers between GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2? I wouldn’t be at all surprised.

As mentioned, GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist, which includes a crazy new storyline, co-op heists, vehicles, weapons, and a damn jetpack, is available now. Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for a spring 2018 release on Xbox One and PS4.
