Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 17 million copies worldwide

Red Dead Redemption 2 Problems Red Dead Redemption 2 Has Already Shipped 17 Million Copies Worldwide

While we may not end up seeing GTA 6 hit stores until as late as 2022 - giving the next generation of consoles a couple of years to build a market - Rockstar's latest does already give fans some insight into how their new title is probably coming together.

Those aren't the only accolades Take-Two called out, either: Rockstar's Cowboy epic is apparently the most pre-ordered full game ever sold on PlayStation Network, as well as the biggest day-one sales of any digital PlayStation games.

The most infamous have been from YouTuber Shirrako, who posted such charmingly named videos as "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Beating up annoying feminist" and "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Deporting A Mexican". 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.

It took the original Red Dead Redemption 8 years to sell 15 million copies. In addition to the base game, Rockstar is planning to launch Red Dead Online - a highly anticipated multiplayer expansion that takes place in Red Dead Redemption 2's open world. 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. "More than 2,000 people brought "Red Dead Redemption 2" to the audience and delivered this incredible result".
