Red Dead Redemption 2 is the biggest entertainment launch of 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the biggest entertainment launch of 2018

Not too long ago, files found in the official companion app for Red Dead Redemption 2 suggested that the open world western's forthcoming multiplayer component, Red Dead Online, would feature Adversary Modes and "seamless PvE". Red Dead Redemption 2, the latest game from Take-Two Interactive Software's Rockstar Games, posted worldwide sales of more than $725 million in its first three days.

As no strangers to ridiculous record-breaking launches, Rockstar Games has proudly revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has enjoyed the biggest opening weekend in retail entertainment history, among a bunch of other accolades.

Although, Rockstar still says Red Dead 2 has the highest-grossing opening weekend, which is technically correct since GTA V was released on a Tuesday - so its $1 billion launch occurred during weekdays.

The game launched to reviews heaping praise on the ambitious title, but it appears fans were already convinced to purchase it, as it broke the records for most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network.

Obviously, a total like that wasn't as hard to reach as it would be for a movie like AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, with the average ticket costing between $10-15. And that's not all the money it stands to make.

Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be ideal, but its minor shortcomings are like tiny blemishes on a stunningly lovely face.

It will be interesting to see how many copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 get sold during the holiday season and to see how Red Dead Online differs from Grand Theft Auto Online.
