Red Dead Redemption has been a massive success for Rockstar. The highly-anticipated Western shooter launched to stellar review scores and quickly sold over 17 million copies, and that was all before the game’s online launched. Since then, Rockstar has continued to release updates and new content, including the Battle Royale style Gun Rush mode.
Thanks to a solid holiday season, Red Dead Redemption 2‘s sales are now sitting even higher. According to the latest numbers from publisher Take-Two Interactive, the game has now “sold-in more than 23 million units worldwide.” This number is a combination of digital sales and shipments to retailers.
Take-Two’s revenue over the holiday season was an impressive $1.2 billion, up $480 million from last year. Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the key drivers of this revenue spike, along with NBA 2K19 and NBA 2K18, Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, WWE 2K19 and WWE SuperCard, Dragon City and Monster Legends, and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI.
