Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 has shipped over 24 Million copies. Publisher Take-Two reported these RDR 2 numbers recently in its financial results report for the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2019.
The publisher confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has performed better than expected. RDR 2 shipped a million copies in the last three months, compared to 23 million reported by Take-Two Interactive in February. This tells us that RDR 2 sales are now slowing down which is pretty much expected.
Take-Two finished a stellar year with strong fourth quarter operating results highlighted by the outperformance of Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, as well as NBA 2K19, and significant ongoing sales of our blockbuster hit, Red Dead Redemption 2
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick also revealed that Red Dead Online will be out of beta by the end of June. That’s good news because Red Dead Online has been in beta since November.
Zelnick also said that RDR Online is performing better than Grand Theft Auto did at the beginning. It’s impressive since Red Dead Redemption 2 is only available on Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, compared to GTA V which is available also on PC.
In addition to RDR 2, Rockstar boasted about GTA V sales by revealing that the game has shipped over 110 million copies worldwide. The latest entry in GTA series continues to sell well six years from launch. This makes Grand Theft Auto V the most selling title ever, leaving behind classic GTA games.
Both games feature microtransactions but the publisher didn’t disclose the numbers regarding player spending or active users. However, the company did say that it has over 90 million players engaged in Rockstar games and online modes, which is a big milestone.
During the reveal of sales, investors asked the publisher whether they have any plans to release Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, to which CEO Strauss Zelnick replied by saying no. “We let our labels talk about what’s coming next. We leave those announcements to them.”
Since there’s not a yes or no, we can expect Red Dead Redemption PC to launch sometime in the future. A PC edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 is rumored for a long time.
As we reported yesterday, the PC version of RDR 2 was spotted in two different resumes of former Rockstar developers. Take-Two can easily make loads of money by releasing the game on PC so it’s just a matter of time until it does. If the rumors are to be believed, RDR 2 for PC can be announced at E3 2019.
