Red Dead Redemption 2 made $725 million over the weekend

Rockstar's critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has smashed numerous records following its release on October 26, taking the title of single-biggest opening weekend in entertainment history.

When "Red Dead Redemption 2" was announced some time ago it was a sure thing it would make piles of cash.

Some other players have reported HDR issues across all platforms, particularly PlayStation - it appears Rockstar are aware of all of these and are working to fix them. Unsurprisingly, it's also the biggest entertainment launch of 2018 so far, and the most pre-ordered full game on PlayStation Network ever. What's No. 1? Grand Theft Auto V, another game made by Rockstar, which earned $1 billion in sales during its first three days.

The western video game epic reached one of the biggest opening weekends in all of the entertainment industry.


One of the main points of the game is needing to survive in the frontier lands of the American West, and to do that, you need cash.

Obviously, a total like that wasn't as hard to reach as it would be for a movie like AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, with the average ticket costing between $10-15.

We've had another tantalizing hint that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to the PC after some enterprising soul rifled through the guts of the game's companion app and found references to a PC version.

It will be interesting to see how many copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 get sold during the holiday season and to see how Red Dead Online differs from Grand Theft Auto Online.
