Red Dead Online Beta to Arrive 'Towards the End' of November

"We can't say that what someone does in a video game is reflective of real life, somehow".

Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, released their earnings report today for Q2 of fiscal year 2019 and in the process divulged new information about the sales of the recently released Red Dead Redemption 2.

Time will tell what Red Dead Redemption 2's 8-year sales will be, but for now, Rockstar and Take-Two are probably feeling pretty pleased with their latest success. 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. Taking a leaf out of the amazingly successful GTA Online, Rockstar plans to keep Red Dead's multiplayer mode constantly updated with fresh content, challenges and in-game events. As Take-Two points out in its report, Red Dead Redemption 2 has received numerous flawless, or near-perfect review scores from many games media outlets, including the likes of IGN, GameSpot, and Game Informer.

Prior to its launch, Red Dead Redemption 2 was easily one of the most highly awaited video games of 2018, and it looks as if the fans' eager anticipation for the open world western release has translated into boffo sales. "Looking ahead, we have a strong development pipeline across our labels and are exceedingly well positioned for long-term growth and margin expansion", said Take-Two's CEO and Chairman Strauss Zelnick.
