For reference, the original game has sold 17 million copies to date. Unlike the Rockstar western's excellent implementation of deep snow, its instructional take on hair growth and its generally compelling depiction of a crumbling micro-society, this new Red Dead's superb present participles appear outside the game.

It's perhaps worth pointing out that murdering suffragettes in Red Dead Redemption 2 actually lowers your Honor rating, while attacking members of the Ku Klux Klan improves it, so there's definitely a message that Rockstar wants to get across.

On an earnings call, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick explained that "it will launch in public beta towards the end of the month - Rockstar will have a lot more to say about it".

Time will tell what Red Dead Redemption 2's 8-year sales will be, but for now, Rockstar and Take-Two are probably feeling pretty pleased with their latest success.


Red Dead Redemption 2 released to overwhelming critical praise, becoming one of the highest rated games of this entire generation.

We don't know exactly how many units Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold yet, but it has reportedly managed to surpass the lifetime sales of its predecessor, 2010's Red Dead Redemption, in a mere eight days on the market.

"As a result of our strong second quarter performance and outstanding early results from Red Dead Redemption 2, we are raising our financial outlook for fiscal 2019, which is also poised to be a record year for Net Bookings and Adjusted Operating Cash Flow".
