Red Dead Redemption 2 is 2018's biggest entertainment launch

Take-Two's 'Red Dead Redemption 2' Has Blockbuster Release Weekend

Biggest first three days full game sales ever on PlayStation Network. Rockstar Games, the studio behind Red Dead Redemption 2, calls the game "the biggest entertainment launch of 2018" - which compares it to other video games, movies, music and books. Rockstar Games announced that its new smash-hit game posted worldwide sales of around $750 million in just three days since its release in October 26.

GameDaily reached out to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella as well, who told us, "Back in July, I predicted that we would report Red Dead Redemption 2 as generating the highest full game dollar sales in the USA this year".

The launch of "Red Dead", originally slated for the fall of 2017, has been delayed two times, and has hit Take-Two Interactive Software Inc's financial projections and stock price.




Hunting rare and valuable animals and using their pelts to craft powerful items or awesome looking pieces of clothing is a major part of the experience for players in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 created by Rockstar Games. The Van Der Linde gang begin the game in a poor financial position, and for a long time you'll find yourself doing tasks for little to no reward, and feel like you're getting nowhere. Goods that you get via illicit means might be worth lots of money, but in the early game, the only real way to see the value of it is to donate to the camp. Admittedly, it seems unlikely that these gun descriptions were written and put into the game after the overtime issues came to light. Rockstar plans to launch Red Dead Online in November as a public beta. It delivers a story full of drama and tragedy, not to mention levity and love, and it compacts it all into the most inventive and compelling missions and moments in Rockstar's history...

Red Dead Redemption 2 will also include access to Red Dead Online.
