Red Dead Redemption 2 Achieves Biggest Opening Weekend in Entertainment History

RDR 2 had the biggest launch ever, after selling something over $725 million in its first three days.

When you stray too far away from your horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, it can't hear you whistle. It is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Grand Theft Auto V which achieved $1 billion retail sell-through in 3 days.

Records were broken all over.

While Rockstar and the Houser brothers will no doubt be celebrating another stonking video game success, it comes amid an outcry about the way in which their games - and video games in general - are made.

"Some staff have been encouraged by Rockstar to speak publicly". That means Olson's initial estimate of Rockstar selling 15.5 million copies of "Red Dead 2" in its fiscal year, which ends in March 2019, "appears conservative", he said in a note to investors Tuesday. "Simply put, some people feel they can not go through this again". The records are sure to continue to break as Red Dead Online releases in public beta sometime in November on PS4 and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on October 26, 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The next two Rockstar Games releases, Grand Theft Auto 6 and Bully 2 leaks might have revealed the release date of both titles. "So the real question is what will consumer response to Red Dead Online be, as that will determine the strength of what will nearly certainly be an extended sales curve", Piscatella continued.

Reviews of the game are effusive as well, with many declaring it a masterpiece and a meticulously polished open world ode to the outlaw era. We have some short videos, however, that show the specifics of a shootout and hunting, from how immersive they are (very) to how the weapons act (realistically) to how Arthur deals with high-stress situations (well).
