While Rockstar Games has already announced how commercially successful Red Dead Redemption 2 is, it seems the game isn’t done — not by a long shot.
As part of Take-Two Interactive’s earnings report, the company mentioned that currently, Red Dead 2 sales numbers are through the roof as the game has now sold-in over 17 million units worldwide!
On October 26th, Rockstar Games launched its highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2, the label’s first game built from the ground up for the current console generation. Red Dead Redemption 2 has received outstanding reviews, with numerous critics awarding the title a perfect score. The title is now tied with Grand Theft Auto V as the highest rated title on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a 97 Metacritic score. A massive commercial success, Red Dead Redemption 2 has set numerous records, including achieving the biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment, with over $725 millionin retail sell-through during its first three days. Red Dead Redemption 2 sold-in more units in its first 8 days than the original blockbuster Red Dead Redemption sold in its first 8 years and, as of today, the title has sold-in over 17 million units worldwide.
Bear in mind, that this number is bound to skyrocket even more once Black Friday, Christmas rolls in, and we don’t even have the game’s online component, Red Dead Online, available yet.
Surprised? I’m not. Will Red Dead Redemption 2 manage to hold on to the sales charts as Grand Theft Auto V? If any game can do it, it’d be Rockstar’s latest opus.
