Take-Two has revealed the sales figure of Red Dead Redemption 2 for the first 8 days, and you will be surprised to know that the game has sold over 17 million units worldwide. This means Red Dead Redemption 2 sold more 8 million copies more in the 8 days than the Red Dead Redemption 1 sold in 8 years. A great milestone considering the fact that the first game released on just two platforms PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and same is the case for the sequel – RDR2 released on PS4 and Xbox One.
In addition to this, Take-Two also revealed that Grand Theft Auto V has sold over 100 million copies worldwide. The surprising part was that Take-Two did not talk about anything regarding Grand Theft Auto Online, and this happened for the very first time in the five years. However, there was a confirmation from Take-Two that Rockstar Games will continue to support GTA Online with new updates and content even after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Lastly, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick also shared a sort of release window for Red Dead Online – it won’t release until the end of November 2018.
In my opinion, Rockstar Games should release Red Dead Online a few months after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. The game has just arrived on retail shelves, and a mid-December 2018 release will be suitable for it. Who knows ‘s Rockstar and Take-Two might be having a different plan?
Red Dead Redemption 2, an epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age, arrives for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26th.
