Det kan ikke være gået over hovedet på mange, at et spil ved navn Red Dead Redemption 2 er udkommet. Spillet er mødt med gode anmeldser og er blevet en instant Game Of The Year kandidat.

Trods de mange kritiske ryster i ugen op til lanceringen, slår spillet allerede flere salgsrekorder og er godt på vej til at blive en kommerciel succes for Rockstar Games.

Set over de første 3 dage efter udgivelsen, er Red Dead Redemption 2 kun overgået af GTA V, som har solgt henholdsvis 750 millioner dollars og 1 milliard dollars. Ja. Én milliard. Det er 9 nuller.
