‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Earns Record-Breaking $725 Million Opening Weekend

Share

Red Dead Redemption 2 was destined to sell a ton of copies.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is out now, so grab a horse and get playing like everyone else!

Second biggest launch for three days in retail sell-through across all entertainment releases. Sony's best PS4 Pro renders Red Dead Redemption at 1920x2160 and with the PS4 Pro's internal image reconstruction techniques is scaled up to 4K.

There were previous reiterations of the buy rating for the company's stock made in August by Bank of America Merrill Lynch which predicted that Red Dead Redemption 2 will have some strong sells. Red Dead 2's opening weekend performance outdid the highest grossing movie of all times, Avengers: Infinity Wars which earned $640 million. Curiously, there's no mention of Xbox, even though a technical analysis showed that the game plays with the smoothest frame rate and highest fidelity on Xbox One X. GameDaily has reached out to the Xbox team for comments.

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.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the landmark 2010 game Red Dead Redemption and the third installment in the Red Dead franchise, which launched in 2004 with Red Dead Revolver. After the success of Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar is clearly all-in on the "Games as a Service" model, which is fine.

This video depicts the blur effect, showing the game to be somewhat out of focus. Piscatella does not buy into that view.

Most pre-ordered PlayStation game ever.

Yet, it still could not compete with the launch window sales of Federation Internationale de Football Association 19.

We'll update this story if more information arises.

IGN has hailed the game for its "gorgeous depiction" of the Old West with "one of this generation's best single-player experiences" that's 'a meticulously polished open world ode to the outlaw era'.
