Red Dead Redemption 2 made $725 million over the weekend

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the UK’s second-biggest physical launch of 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 had the largest opening weekend for any entertainment product in history, managing to sell through $725 million in copies over just three days.

Rockstar's critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has smashed numerous records following its release on October 26, taking the title of single-biggest opening weekend in entertainment history.

However, Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn't quite managed to scale the lofty heights of Grand Theft Auto V, which accumulated $1 billion in sell-through to retail within the same time-frame.

Most pre-ordered PlayStation game ever. Pedestrians go about their daily business; saloons and sheriffs supply sherry or sanctions in equal measure, with you and your steed wandering through town, enacting the will of one Arthur Morgan. According top the same press release, RDR 2 has sold through $725 million's worth in its first three days at retail, giving it the second best launch ever.

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.

Of course Red Dead Redemption 2 was going to be successful (despite all of the stories about its human cost). And that's not all the money it stands to make.

Sony has a marketing deal with Rockstar Games for the game, which grants the PlayStation 4 version additional content and early access to Red Dead Online in November.
