Red Dead Online Servers Down - Error 0x20010006 Fix

Red Dead Online has started to roll out to players. We’ll be collecting all widespread errors in this guide.

Great news Red Dead Redemption 2 fans, Red Dead Online has just launched. It’s being rolled out gradually over the next few days, with Ultimate Edition owners getting the first go. As with any online game, there are bound to be some issues relating to server stability and network connection. To help keep you in the loop, we’ll be collecting info on all of the widespread issues that crop up. There are already a few noteworthy bugs to take a look at, so let’s get started.

For more on Red Dead Online, be sure to check out our Red Dead Online Everything We Know Guide. It has info on the launch schedule of the beta, and also some more details on Red Dead Redemption 2’s online component.

Red Dead Online Servers Down

Given that it is still early days for Red Dead Online, there are bound to be some teething problems in the coming weeks. There will be server drops, as we’ve seen already, though things seem to be a lot more stable than the launch of GTA Online at least. We’ll be taking a look at any issues that have cropped up so far below:

Red Dead Online Error 0x20010006 Fix

Some players have been experiencing an error message after being kicked from a server in Red Dead Online. The error is called Error 0x20010006, but what exactly is it, and is there a fix? Well, this particular error indicates a problem with Rockstar servers and is very much a Rockstar problem, not a user issue. As such, the only fix available is reloading the server. This issue will likely become less prevelant as servers adjust to the player load experienced at launch.

Red Dead Online Xbox One Not Loading

Since Red Dead Online launched, some Xbox One users have been reporting that they are unable to access Red Dead Online. Given Red Dead Online has an unusual launch schedule for it’s beta, it’s worth checking first that you are eligible to jump in. You’ll need the Ultimate Edition to play on day one, have played RDR2 on launch day to get in on Day 2, played within the first three days of launch to get in on Day 3, then it’s Friday for everyone else. Regardless, the Xbox One version does seem to be having some issues with server stability, as acknowledged by the Rockstar Support Twitter.

If you need to check whether they are live, just head over to the Rockstar Support site (https://support.rockstargames.com/servicestatus), where it’ll tell you which platform’s servers are currently live.
