Red Dead Redemption 2 sold more than 50 million

Rockstar Games’ parent company, Take-Two Interactive, announced this today Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 50 million units across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms. Since the first launch in 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a huge hit for Rockstar and Take-Two. And while the open-world western never reached the same obscene heights as Grand Theft Auto Vthis new milestone RDR2 has placed it in a very rare area.

Announced today by Take-Two on a new financial call, Red Dead Redemption 2 was confirmed to have now shipped 50 million copies worldwide. Just in the last quarter alone RDR2 sold over 4 million copies, which is pretty incredible considering the age of the game. Second try said that this performance in the quarter was unexpected, but was led by a lot of sales for the game around the holiday season.

In case you’re wondering, only eight video games in history have ever surpassed 50 million units sold. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the latest title to join this mix and now sits alongside games like Minecraft, PUBG, Tetris, Mario Kart 8 Deluxeand the above Grand Theft Auto V. It remains to be seen whether RDR2 may eventually climb to 7th place overall, but it will have to pass mario kart 8 to do this, which is definitely a big task.

Perhaps the strangest part of it Red Dead Redemption 2 staying power is that Rockstar Games reportedly has no plans to bring the game to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X platforms. While ports for new hardware would make a lot of sense on paper and potentially generate even more sales RDR2Rockstar itself would be more focused Grand Theft Auto VI. Hopefully Rockstar’s plans on this front will change one day, but it doesn’t sound like something fans should be too hopeful about for now.
