Take-Two Stock Surges on Blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2 Sales

Take-Two Stock Surges on Blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2 Sales”

Released on Friday to critical acclaim, Red Dead Redemption 2's opening weekend eclipses the $640.5m of Avengers: Infinity War, which is the highest-grossing of any film in history.

Rockstar Games' "Red Dead Redemption 2" broke records with its opening weekend numbers.

The strong initial sales are good, but more importantly they seemingly create a wide base for Red Dead Online, the multiplayer portion of the game that is planned to launch (in beta) next month.

It just shows how real and unexpected this game can get, and yet another reason why Red Dead Redemption 2 is worth the purchase.

"It does not set a new bar, but rather signals a changing of the guard, a new future for video games, as everything that comes after will be launching in a post-Red Dead Redemption 2 world".

However, it predictably couldn't beat Rockstar's own over $1 billion in retail sell-through registered by Grand Theft Auto V its first three days.

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter told Barron's that Take-Two did a "masterful" job with the release.

This video depicts the blur effect, showing the game to be somewhat out of focus. Piscatella does not buy into that view.

Rockstar also claimed that RDR2 also became the most pre-ordered game ever on the PlayStation Network (PSN), Sony's online gaming service for its hit console system. "We're seeing record setting launch sales performances across a number of major titles already, and I expect this trend to continue".

We'll update this story if more information arises.
