Red Dead Redemption 2 Has Made $725 Million in Three Days

With so many trees in Red Dead Redemption 2, it could be anywhere.

Red Dead Redemption 2, a game about gunslinging outlaws robbing and killing to survive in the Wild West, made a killing itself in its opening weekend.

Sony's best PS4 Pro renders Red Dead Redemption at 1920x2160 and with the PS4 Pro's internal image reconstruction techniques is scaled up to 4K. One frustrated player, who goes by the username SkySweeper656, took to the Red Dead Redemption subreddit to ask how it was possible to win a fist fight without getting a bounty placed on your head. Through its first three days the western brought in a whopping $725 million.

Released on Friday to critical acclaim, Red Dead Redemption 2's opening weekend eclipses the $640.5m of Avengers: Infinity War, which is the highest-grossing of any film in history. RDR2 has also beaten several recent Call of Duty launches - including last year's WW2 and this year's Black Ops 4. It's still to be announced when the Red Dead Online would come out, but the company's plans already seem to be aiming to the next projects. "So the real question is what will consumer response to Red Dead Online be, as that will determine the strength of what will nearly certainly be an extended sales curve", Piscatella continued.
