Rockstar Games' parent company Take-Two Interactive has today revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has topped 50 million units sold across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms. Since first launching back in 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a massive hit for Rockstar and Take-Two. And while the open-world western never reached the same obscene heights as Grand Theft Auto V, this new milestone for RDR2 has put it in very rare territory.
Announced by Take-Two today during a new financial call, Red Dead Redemption 2
was confirmed to have now shipped 50 million copies globally. Within the past quarter alone, RDR2
sold over 4 million units, which is pretty incredible given the game's age. Take-Two said
that this performance within the quarter was unexpected but was led by many sales for the game that took place around the holidays.
In case you're wondering, only eight video games in history have ever been able to top 50 million copies sold. Red Dead Redemption 2
is the latest title to join this mix and is now alongside games such as Minecraft
, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
, and the aforementioned Grand Theft Auto V
. It remains to be seen if RDR2
can end up climbing to the 7th spot overall, but it will have to pass Mario Kart 8
to do so, which is absolutely a tall task.
