Take-Two's 'Red Dead Redemption 2' Has Blockbuster Release Weekend (NASDAQ:TTWO)

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists

Rockstar has trumpeted Red Dead Redemption 2's astronomical sales, claiming it to be the second-biggest entertainment launch of all time.

The dust has settled, and "Red Dead Redemption 2" has slipped away with the cash.

Previously Rockstar Games has released Grand Theft Auto V, which managed over US$1 billion (NZ$1.527 billion) in three days' worth of sales.

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*. There's also a reference to Oculus' VR headset the Oculus Rift, so maybe Rockstar is planning to release a VR version of the game at some point.

Researchers Discover Microplastics in 100 Percent of People Studied
Everywhere scientists have looked for them they have found tiny bits of degraded plastic-including, now, in human poop. In the first study of its kind, researchers say they have found evidence of tiny plastic particles in the human gut.

"Some staff have been encouraged by Rockstar to speak publicly".

In addition, Forbes also offered up another very positive review for Red Dead Redemption II, lauding, like many other reviewers, its engrossing open world and memorable gameplay. "Simply put, some people feel they can not go through this again". It technically didn't beat out Grand Theft Auto V, which didn't break the opening weekend record since it launched on a Tuesday.

Watch Take-Two Interactive trade in real time here. The publisher no doubt has high aspirations for Red Dead Online, but as an online experience it's still an unproven entity.

Red Dead Redemption 2 players will want to grab the legendary bear pelt in order to craft an awesome outfit for Arthur Morgan. "We're seeing record setting launch sales performances across a number of major titles already, and I expect this trend to continue". It pushes the envelope of what we understand is possible in a video game.
