Red Dead Redemption 2 Has The Biggest Launch Weekend Ever

FIFA 19 tops Red Dead Redemption 2 as fastest selling UK game in 2018

GTA V has sold almost 100 million units since its launch, the company said earlier this year. It has a Metacritic score of 97, which makes it one of the most critically-acclaimed games of this generation.

Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 has managed to retain its crown as the fastest-selling game in the United Kingdom this year despite a strong attempt from the highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 from Rockstar Games.

Put another way, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the biggest entertainment launch of 2018 (and will likely continue that steam into the holiday).

In the meantime, Red Dead Redemption 2 is proving to be a massive success for Rockstar Games, something that was intuited months before the official release of the title.

Actually, website Rockstar Intel (via PC Gamer) recently discovered certain hidden parameters in Rockstar's companion app for Red Dead Redemption 2, which strongly suggest the game could be hitting the PC in the future.

· "This is a game of rare quality; a meticulously polished open world ode to the outlaw era".

One of the few more lukewarm reviews of the video game came from Slant Magazine, who hailed the game for its ambition and scope but found relatively little depth to it.

Red Dead's staggering sales figure topped the highest-grossing movie of all time, "Avengers: Infinity War", which earned $640 million in its opening weekend in April. "It seems that every time we get something new from Rockstar, things inevitably change". Rockstar plans to launch Red Dead Online in November as a public beta. The company wisely included GTA cash bonuses for Red Dead 2 pre-orders as it knows that GTA Online continues to be a cash cow., but Red Dead Online could prove to be a great games-as-a-service revenue generator too.

Perhaps Bully 2 is in the cards, but then we will have to wait for more concrete information.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
