Yes, we know that Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 is nothing short of remarkable and is now considered one of the best modern games to date but what Rockstar Games outdo themselves further is by selling the game 3 times more than what the first Red Dead Redemption did back in May 2010.
According to the NPD Group (National Purchase Diary), had shipped more than 17 million units to retail as of the start of November 2018, which is, again, thrice more than what RDR did back then. Currently, the game already made $725M in revenue according to a press release made by Take Two Interactive, making it the biggest opening weekend for home entertainment since Grand Theft Auto V back in September 2013.
This is undoubtedly the biggest achievement Rockstar Games has ever made. While the game is doing well in terms of gaming quality and sales, the big question still remains,
Rockstar Games has never announced anything about such a thing but when it comes to PC ports, gamers are always anxious about whether or not their game will be released onto the platform. Remember: the first RDR never came to the PC at all which is why so many gamers are still curious about RDR2 having an official release for the master race.
Grand Theft Auto V’s PC version was almost non-existent until it finally got its port in May of 2015 where the game has sold millions more via Steam and ranking as one of the highest daily active player count even to this day.
But if Rockstar Games isn’t allergic to making money, they’ll soon create a PC port probably a year or two from now. And once it does, it will certainly be the highest grossing video game they’ll ever put out.
