Take Two has announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 surpassed 17 million copies distributed worldwide. That means that the recently released title of the famous franchise, created by Rockstar Games and launched for PS4 and Xbox One, is a great success.
It was clear that Red Dead Redemption 2 was going to be a success as it was one of the most sought-after and promising video games of the year and its sales figures confirm that. Take Two released the news to its investors announcing that Red Dead Redemption 2 has already surpassed 17 million units distributed worldwide.
That is a significant milestone considering that the title developed by Rockstar Games has only been on the market for two weeks.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Surpassed 17 Million Copies Sold In Its First Week
These figures are significant since they suppose that Red Dead Redemption 2 has managed to sell in only eight days in the market more than the first Red Dead Redemption in 8 years. One more sample of how much Rockstar Games has grown as a global brand and the excellent work of the company in developing this title for PS4 and Xbox One.
Also, the 17 million copies distributed of Red Dead Redemption 2 these days also make the title the world’s largest launch of generalized entertainment as it has surpassed the $725 million raised in its first weekend on the market.
But if you want to understand the keys to the success of this adventure better, you should know that Red Dead Redemption 2 is set in an open world, in Wild West, and follows a story that’s chronologically before the events in the first title of the series. In addition to all that, you should also remember that a Red Dead Redemption Online variant is in the works, while a PC version might also come out but we don’t have an approximative date on that.
