Red Dead Redemption 2 explodes already many records

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists

So, technically Red Dead Redemption 2 does have the biggest "opening weekend", if you're taking into account when each game was released at retail.

Previously Rockstar Games has released Grand Theft Auto V, which managed over US$1 billion (NZ$1.527 billion) in three days' worth of sales.

Red Dead Redemption II is also the most pre-ordered full game ever on the PlayStation Network, and claimed the biggest day one and three-day sales ever on Sony's online service.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is out now, so grab a horse and get playing like everyone else! According to a report from UKIE, the PlayStation 4 version took 68% share of sales, and is the biggest debut on the platform for a non-FIFA title.

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter noted that the sales figures imply around 12 million units sold at launch.

Rockstar has put in some serious work into the engine for Red Dead Redemption 2 where all four consoles don't dynamically change the resolution during gameplay, so they're all locked resolutions. This is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch ever behind Grand Theft Auto 5, another Rockstar Games release.

Red Dead Redemption 2 offers a vast world to explore with more than 60 hours of content.

Red Dead Redemption 2 also significantly boosted records on the PlayStation Network. However, we're still waiting for Red Dead Online to launch on the systems that can already play the game. This may not seem like too much to begin with; however, apparently Worcester is a city that lies just outside of Boston in the US.
