  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Player Confronts an Actual Werewolf While Exploring

As a matter of fact, Rockstar Games' parent company, Take-Two Interactive, has now officially declared that RDR2's sales have already outpaced the original game's total lifetime figures after just a couple of weeks of being available.

It's perhaps worth pointing out that murdering suffragettes in Red Dead Redemption 2 actually lowers your Honor rating, while attacking members of the Ku Klux Klan improves it, so there's definitely a message that Rockstar wants to get across.

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.

Red Dead Redemption 2 released to overwhelming critical praise, becoming one of the highest rated games of this entire generation.

According to Take-Two, Rockstar has now shipped more than 17 million copies of Red Dead Redemption 2, with the publisher also revealing that RDR2's first eight days on the market led to it selling more than RDR1 did within its first eight years of release. You may have not noticed them because you can't see them while playing Red Dead Redemption 2. All we know so far is that Red Dead Online will be an evolution of Red Dead Redemptions online mode and it will feature constant updates and adjustments much like GTA Online. 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.
