The Red Dead Franchise by Rockstar Games has gathered a lot of praise for its unique western style action-adventure theme; both games, Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2, have won multiple awards for their story and stunning visuals.
Red Dead Redemption was released in May 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and received critical acclaim and love from the community. It shaped a new community and fan base due to its distinct art style and game mechanics, selling over 15 million copies by 2017.
But when Red Dead Redemption 2 was launched in October 2018, it made $725 million in just three days of its release, with over 27 million copies sold within the first two weeks of its release, smashing the records of its predecessor by far and becoming the 9th best selling game of all time. The game was also on sale on Steam a few days ago, introducing the game to the modern audience.
Take Two Interactive Inc. released its financial report today, showing that the Red Dead Redemption franchise is still strong and has become a timeless classic. It was revealed that the Red Dead Redemption franchise has collectively sold 70 million copies worldwide, which includes; Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Red Dead Online, and these sales are 2 million up from the figure of 68 million that was reported in the last quarterly financial report.
While if we talk about Red Dead Redemption 2, even after 4 years of its release, the game is still smashing numbers, selling over 46 million copies worldwide. Undoubtedly, the gamers community has unconditional love for the Rockstar games due to their unique ideas and games that have stayed for decades, and these sales figures are just proof of that.
And especially with Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games experimented with a new western style game that got stuck and is still loved to this day. What are your thoughts about these sales of the Red Dead Redemption franchise? Let us know in the comment section below.
