Red Dead Redemption 2 makes record-breaking $750 million in three days

Red Dead Redemption 2 makes record-breaking $750 million in three days

The highest grossing video game launch surprisingly doesn't belong to Red Dead 2, however, that distinction belongs to another Rockstar Games launch, Grand Theft Auto V raking in $1 billion through three days back in 2013. Both Grand Theft Auto IV and V set records in their day and now the recently released Red Dead Redemption 2 is following suit.

This is also big news for Sony Interactive Entertainment because according to SIE, Red Dead Redemption 2 had the highest number of PSN pre-orders and highest day one digital sale.

The dust has settled, and "Red Dead Redemption 2" has slipped away with the cash. That saw $500 million of sales during its launch weekend, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian told Bloomberg. There have been few games with three-day sell-through announcements, so it is hard to gauge what the first few days of sales imply about the potential lifetime sales for a given game. The game was expected to collect just $500 million in sales in its first three days, which implies the company posted "monstrous sales numbers", he said.

Rockstar Games did not share the exact unit sales for Red Dead Redemption 2, but the sell-through numbers suggest it's more than 10 million. I'm holding to that prediction, although I do expect it to be a pretty tight race between it and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. You will have to either stay and hunt the Bharati Grizzly to obtain the legendary bear pelt right then after the quest is completed, or you can leave and come back at a later time to partake in the risky Red Dead Redemption 2 hunt.

Of course, if Red Dead Redemption 2 is truly on the works, another matter is how long it will take the New York-based studio to put out a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. Piscatella does not buy into that view.

Many have brought it online to complain that HDR serves no real purposes in improving the graphics in the game. It pushes the envelope of what we understand is possible in a video game. If you're not outfitted super well at this point in the game, you might want to take some time in the world to earn better gear and improve Arthur's well-being before you commit to the fight.
