Red Dead Redemption 2 still sold admirably, doubling the sales of its predecessor and comfortably beating rival Call of Duty Black Ops 4 in its opening week.
Released on Friday, October 26 on Xbox One and PS4, Red Dead Redemption 2 is far from gone unnoticed.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the landmark 2010 game Red Dead Redemption and the third installment in the Red Dead franchise, which launched in 2004 with Red Dead Revolver. While not eclipsing the same three-day sales record as GTA V (which launched on a Tuesday), RDR 2 has become the biggest opening weekend ever in all of entertainment.

Elsewhere in the top ten, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 both fall one place each, to second and third respectively. When Red Dead Online launches in November, these figures will probably surge again.
'The up-close portrayal of the outlaw Van der Linde gang's unraveling is a compelling companion story that blends seamlessly with the original game, and depth and breadth of the open world is a technical triumph that every gamer should experience'. Piscatella does not buy into that view.
Most preordered full game ever on PlayStation Network. "We're seeing record setting launch sales performances across a number of major titles already, and I expect this trend to continue".
