Red Dead Redemption 2 has turned out to be a huge success for Rockstar. Rockstar officially revealed that the game made more than $725 Million in just three days after launch. RDR 2 launch sales are bigger than of any entertainment product.
Digital sales number are not available yet but we are sure that they are also record-breaking.
In other news, the popularity of RDR 2 has resulted in it being searched on porn sites. RDR 2 porn searches have increased rapidly since release. People are searching cowboys and Wild West terms, the credit goes to RDR 2 and gamers.
As for the game, HDR doesn’t work properly in the game as it should. in fact, it’s a fake implementation as the game just upgrades SDR to HDR to create an illusion. It’s very disappointing and we hope Rockstar addresses this issue.
RDR 2 can be proudly called the best game of the current generation and its rumored to be released on next gen too. Rumors tell us that the game is going to release on PS5 and we can’t wait.
