A game that manages to sell 3 million copies within months of release is disappointing sales. This means they spent way more than they should have making the game.

It is also another example where a new IP like Red Dead Redemption carries less risk and has more financial success, than trying to revive and keep relevant some old IP by spending shit tons of money while not creating shit tons of value for the gamer.


Redemption was a sequel to Red Dead Revolver. But I guess so many years passed since Revolver came out that Redemption might as well have been a new IP since everyone forgot about the first game. New IPs are the most risky endeavors whenever budgets surpass that 25 million dollar range.

Single-player games therefore have to be budgeted accordingly because multiplayer shooters are the standard right now.
