Red Dead Redemption 2 Stomped the Largest Opening in the Entertainment Industry

Thursday, 01 Nov, 2018

The biggest of these achievements is the fact that it had the single best opening weekend in the history of entertainment.

Apparently, they are unable to include a lot of features in "Red Dead Redemption 2" due to the limitations of the current-gen consoles. Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive announced this morning that the sequel has already become the biggest entertainment launch of the year by generating $725 million in sell-through revenue in the game's first three days at retail.

Part of this is owed to the use of HDR technology - something that Rockstar has talked about countless times when promoting Red Dead Redemption 2.

The Wild West video game Red Dead Redemption 2 has made $725m (£650m) in retail sell-through during its first three days on sale, according to the title's publisher Rockstar. Likewise, RDR2 also posted the highest sales on launch day ever on the history of the PSN.

Red Dead Redemption 2 also quickly became the most well-reviewed game on both Xbox One and PS4 on review aggregate Metacritic last week.

Critics from around the world have praised the game for its engrossing storyline, rich open world environment and stunning graphics, with many calling it among the best video games of all time.

Another user BLAQKROXSTAR mirrored this sentiment, saying "Yea I exhausted turning off HDR because my video clips looked like trash and the game looks frightful without HDR".

Of course, if Red Dead Redemption 2 is truly on the works, another matter is how long it will take the New York-based studio to put out a PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.
