Red Dead Redemption 2 gets $1.1 billion global opening weekend

In addition, the game grossed more than $725 million in sales numbers in its first three days. As Grand Theft Auto V was released on a Tuesday, the Red Dead Redemption 2 figure makes the game the most successful opening weekend of any entertainment product.

Records were broken all over.

· "What Rockstar has delivered in Red Dead Redemption 2 is not just the best game of the year, but the best game of the decade".

"Some staff have been encouraged by Rockstar to speak publicly". They are proud of their work and want Red Dead Redemption 2 to succeed, but desperate to see Rockstar's production processes changed. "Simply put, some people feel they can not go through this again". Red Dead Online is planned for launch in November 2018, initially as a public beta, with more news to come soon.

According to the source, Rockstar is not turning their full attention to "GTA 6" right away after the release of "Red Dead Redemption 2" last week.

It's actually the second-highest grossing entertainment launch, although Rockstar won't be too unhappy with that, given that the record-holder is Grand Theft Auto V. "So the real question is what will consumer response to Red Dead Online be, as that will determine the strength of what will nearly certainly be an extended sales curve", Piscatella continued. Piscatella does not buy into that view.

The first thing that stands out is that Red Dead Redemption 2 itself will have a final edition destined for the next generation of consoles (and most likely for PCs), which would be released in 2020, coinciding with the expected arrival date for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett. "We're seeing record setting launch sales performances across a number of major titles already, and I expect this trend to continue".

Another user BLAQKROXSTAR mirrored this sentiment, saying "Yea I exhausted turning off HDR because my video clips looked like trash and the game looks frightful without HDR".
