Rockstar Games has shipped more than 17 million copies of Red Dead Redemption 2, according to an announcement by Take-Two Interactive.
Just imagine that Rockstar sold that many copies of Red Dead in just 12 days! The game launched Oct. 26 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and you have to admit that’s an astonishing result.
It is worth noting that the physical copies included in the 17 million total are units that were shipped to retailers, not purchased by customers. Still, it’s an unbelievably impressive result.
Previously we’ve also mentioned that in just three days the company managed to sell through $725 million in copies worldwide. This is not the biggest overall launch, but it’s a damn good one.
Red Dead Redemption 2, stated Take-Two, has “exceeded our sales expectations to date.” Make sure to discuss the news in the comments below.
