Red Dead Redemption 2 sells more in 8 days than RDR1 sold in 8 years, 17m shipped as of today

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Red Dead Redemption 2 sells more in 8 days than RDR1 sold in 8 years, 17m shipped as of today

Few days after its release date some people were saying that it wouldn't sell more than 20 million. Now 40-50m should be quite easy.

Shipped ? Not even an even more impressive sold to customers number ?

BTW, do they count digital like Japanese publishers ?



That's cool and all Rockstar, but can we get an update on BUlly sequel?

No but real talk, RDR 2 is amazing. Definitely one of, if not the best games this gen. Congrats to the best studio, hands down. No one comes close.



Rockstar just knows how to hit them out of the park with their big budget AAA titles. First, GTA V becomes the best selling AAA title in history (and it's STILL selling). Now this.

All signs suggest Bully 2 is their next game. We've had multiple reliable Rockstar insiders mention it, as well as an artwork leak and a casting call leak now.

Rockstar being Rockstar.
Pretty sure they shipped a lot for the holidays, but damn bro, 17M shipped already tells a lot, it won't ever have the lasting appeal of GTA but what a insane hype this thing had!

Please, Bully was also a masterpiece we need more.



ABSOLUTE MONSTER

Im just playing the first one and loving it.



Doing great already, now all they need to do is release a PS5 Remaster with VR, and I will double dip.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

17 million sent to retailers, not sold to final consumer. But we still need to take into account the digital copies sold.

BTW, if with all these sales they didn't brake even with development costs, they are making a huge mistake not releasing it for PC on day 1.
