Take-Two Stock Surges on Blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2 Sales

Analyst are ecstatic over the sales of the Red Dead Redemption 2 open-world game, which takes inspiration from old Wild West movies.

Red Dead Redemption 2 focuses on the events after a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater. The must-own title reportedly banked over $725 million in worldwide retail sales in just 72 hours.

There was never any doubt that Red Dead Redemption 2 was going to be a best selling title. However, I don't think anybody would have expected it see the single most impressive opening weekend in the history of entertainment.

You spend a lot of your time at your camp in Red Dead Redemption 2 whether it's waiting around for a mission, donating to the tithing box or talking to your gang. "However, new data could influence our thinking, so we think it is prudent to model 20 million units in the December quarter and re-orders of 3 million in the March quarter".

Now it seems those hopes are becoming more... hopeful, as one dataminer has discovered references to the PC platform while digging around in the code for the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app.

GTA V and GTA Online are major reasons for Take-Two's solid fiscal performance year-in and year-out.

"The record-setting launch underscores how video games continue to steal market share away from other forms of media", O'Shea said in an email. In the list, it comes right after Grand Theft Auto V, which was released in 2013. If you think too long about the story, you might miss the unbelievable graphics, and if you spend too much time deciding what to feed Arthur, you might forget to upgrade his camp.
