'Red Dead Redemption 2' has best opening weekend on record

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists

"Red Dead" is described by Rockstar as the "first game built from the ground up for new generation hardware, and seamlessly blends gameplay and storytelling". It is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Grand Theft Auto V which achieved $1 billion retail sell-through in 3 days. Overall, GTA V did have a bigger launch with $1 billion generated in its first three days. Today's news is exciting for a team who clearly put their blood, sweat, and tears into this game. There's also a reference to Oculus' VR headset the Oculus Rift, so maybe Rockstar is planning to release a VR version of the game at some point.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched last week and has been rapturously received so far - this cowboy adventure sure is a worthy successor to Rockstar's 2010 hit.

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. Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive announced this morning that the sequel has already become the biggest entertainment launch of the year by generating $725 million in sell-through revenue in the game's first three days at retail.




Most preordered full game ever on PlayStation Network.

Red Dead Redemption 2 players will want to grab the legendary bear pelt in order to craft an awesome outfit for Arthur Morgan. We have some short videos, however, that show the specifics of a shootout and hunting, from how immersive they are (very) to how the weapons act (realistically) to how Arthur deals with high-stress situations (well).

The best console to play RDR 2 on is the beefed up Xbox One X which runs the game at native 4K at a "near-locked" 30FPS.
