Red Dead Redemption II has already been established as being not only one of the best games of 2018 but one of the most successful entertainment products of all time. It’s doing so well that it outsold the previous game within eight days.

According to a Take-Two financial report, the publisher explained:

“Red Dead Redemption II sold-in more units in its first eight days than the original blockbuster┬áRed Dead Redemption┬ásold in its first eight years and, as of today, the title has sold-in over 17 million units worldwide,”

This is insane news considering that the game’s online mode, Red Dead Online, hasn’t launched. Imagine how big these numbers will become when the game eventually comes to PC and microtransactions are added?

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