Overtime - Is there a hidden reference in Red Dead Redemption II?

If you didn't spend your bank holiday weekend playing the new Red Dead Redemption game, you are definitely in the minority. The backdrop of the closing years of Old West era finds the gang in desperate straits with federal agents and elite bounty hunters hounding them and internal divisions testing their loyalties. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

Rockstar Games did not share the exact unit sales for Red Dead Redemption 2, but the sell-through numbers suggest it's more than 10 million. Rockstar Games announced today that Red Dead Redemption 2 achieved entertainment's biggest opening weekend of all time with three day sales topping $725 million.

Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 has already generated nearly three quarters of a billion dollars in revenue according to the company, just three days after its release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. 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.




As a retail game, it's second only to GTAV's opening three days.

· "Red Dead Redemption 2 has undoubtedly raised the bar for narrative open-world games and will likely have a lasting impact on how they are made in the future". We're saying that it beat out every other video game, movie, TV show, book, and so on. Red Dead Redemption 2 is now a single-player only experience (with online to follow this November) only on Xbox One and PS4. Rockstar is planning to release an online multiplayer mode for RDR2, Red Dead Online, this November.
