Take-Two Interactive raises financial outlook due to Red Dead Redemption II

Red Dead Redemption 2 Problems

Red Dead Redemption 2 Has Already Shipped 17 Million Copies Worldwide

Oh, just the fact that the game has sold boatloads of copies in just eight days.

"We are really proud of Rockstar Games", he said. Of course, it's also worth mentioning that these figures are sell-in numbers rather than sell-through, which means that the physical copies included in the 17 million total is in reference to units shipped to retailers instead of those purchased by customers.

If you've played Red Dead Redemption 2, you may have not noticed them.

Red Dead Online is still a relatively unknown quantity, but Take-Two president Karl Slatoff called it, "an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways".

It's perhaps worth pointing out that murdering suffragettes in Red Dead Redemption 2 actually lowers your Honor rating, while attacking members of the Ku Klux Klan improves it, so there's definitely a message that Rockstar wants to get across.

Red Dead Redemption 2 publisher Take-Two may be proud of the game's successful launch, but it won't give any hints as to when or if the game is getting a release on PC. Thanks to the sales of "Red Dead Redemption 2", and a strong second quarter performance, Take-Two raised their financial outlook for fiscal 2019, which ends on March 31.

Time will tell what Red Dead Redemption 2's 8-year sales will be, but for now, Rockstar and Take-Two are probably feeling pretty pleased with their latest success.
