Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC? Companion app drops a hint

FIFA 19 tops Red Dead Redemption 2 as fastest selling UK game in 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 pulls in a massive $725 million in opening weekend

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.

Given that Grand Theft Auto V was initially released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, this means Red Dead Redemption 2 now holds the record for the largest launch of the console generation.

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.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is now the highest critically reviewed game on the PlayStation 4, with an average score of 97 on Metacritic, and the top game on Xbox One, also with an average score of 97 on Metacritic.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Has The Biggest Launch Weekend Ever

The eagerly anticipated sequel to one of the last generation's best games was always going to make a heck of a lot of money - but nobody expected it to have the best opening weekend of any product in the history of media entertainment.

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.

Even more impressive is that Red Dead Redemption 2 is now a console only release, with PC gamers completely left in the dark as to if and when it will be released on the platform, which would again boost sales.
