Even before the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar predicted impressive sales for the new game, in addition, several major publishers have postponed the release of their games to a later date so as not to compete with the western for gamers' wallets. But the fact that sales of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be so impressive, probably, few could have imagined. In the first days of sales alone (October 26-29), the game brought the publisher $ 725 million. And this is an absolute record for all media products in the first weekend after release.
We will not go far for examples and remember the main hit of this year "Avengers: Infinity War". The blockbuster from Marvel in its first weekend brought its creators "only" 640 million dollars in revenue, which is a record result for the film industry.
If the sales of RDR 2 are translated into the equivalent of sold copies, then in total players around the world in the first three days bought about 10 million copies of the game. The news of the success of Red Dead Redemption will certainly delight the developers, especially considering the hopes of the publisher of the game Take-Two that the western will sell 18-20 million copies in the first few months after release.
But still, we have to admit that RDR 2 could not become the absolute record holder in the entertainment industry, the championship still belongs to another hit from the "Rockstars" - GTA V, which in the first days after its release made developers $ 1 billion rich. Only The Great Auto Theft came out on Tuesday, so the record for the “highest profit for the first weekend” remains with RDR 2.
It is more likely to assume that the Western is unlikely to slow down over the next months of Red Dead Redemption 2 and will remain at the top of the sales charts, thanks to the impressive reviews from critics and the November launch of Red Dead Redemption Online.
PC players shouldn't be upset either, as more news is emerging about the release of Red Dead Redemption on PC. And if you have a console and you are still wondering whether to buy the game, then we suggest that you familiarize yourself with a selection of 5 main problems of RDR 2.
