By Grayshadow, Posted 30 Oct 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the biggest games of 2018 so it isn't surprising to hear that it broke several records. However, Red Dead Redemption 2 set the record of being the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment.

In an official press release publisher, Take-Two Interactive stated:

Rockstar Games® is proud to announce that the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has achieved the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment*. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games' previously released title, Grand Theft Auto V, which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days.*

Red Dead Redemption 2's benchmarks include:

Biggest opening weekend in retail sell-through across all entertainment releases;

Second biggest launch (three days) in retail sell-through across all entertainment releases;

Biggest entertainment launch of 2018;

Most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network;

Biggest day one full game sales ever on PlayStation Network;

Biggest first three days full game sales ever on PlayStation Network.

Currently, only the single-player portion of Red Dead Redemption 2 is active. Rockstar still has the multiplayer Red Dead Online to add, which will likely contain microtransactions and generate even more money.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PS4 and Xbox One.
