Red Dead Redemption 2 Problems

Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, released their earnings report today for Q2 of fiscal year 2019 and in the process divulged new information about the sales of the recently released Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on both PS4 and Xbox One, but if you haven't been paying close attention, you might be wondering where its multiplayer mode is and how to access it.

A lot of folks (myself included) expected Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to still potentially win the sales war in the calendar year of 2018, but after these insane numbers for Red Dead Redemption 2, it seems like the competition might already be over.

"Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players", the announcement states. Oh, just the fact that the game has sold boatloads of copies in just eight days. Additionally, Take-Two has now narrowed things down slightly, saying Red Dead Online launches in late November. That's what happens when your game is one of the most anticipated, well-reviewed games in a decade. Red Dead Redemption 2 is now sitting in commercial history as the biggest opening weekend for any form of entertainment and over $725 million in retail sell-through in just its first three days out in the wild.
