Within eight days, Red Dead Redemption 2 had already surpassed the previous installment with more units shipped over a much shorter period. But where is it at the time of writing these lines? Strauss ZelnickCEO of Take-Two, answered this question during his financial statement.
In this one, the publisher informs us that 23 million copies were distributed (to resellers), since its release. As a result, this episode continued to atomize Red Dead Redemption 1 as Zelnick recalls:
The title shipped more units in its first 15 days than the first Red Dead Redemption in 8 yearsand he had the highest opening weekend in industry history with $725 million. So we are very satisfied. Obviously, it performs beyond our high expectations. It’s very hard to say where this will take us, but we are delighted with what we have achieved so far.
Obviously, the results of Red Dead Online are also superior to those of Grand Theft Auto Online:
… But in terms of engagement, and if you compare with Grand Theft Auto on an equal time frame, Red Dead Online is showing higher player engagement, doing better and getting more early adopters, which is very encouraging.
In big numbers, the company garnered $1.248 billion in revenuewhile she was hoping for 1.1 to 1.15 billion, and profits are $350 million.

Confronted with this, the forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31 have been revised upwardswith expected revenues rising from $2.66 billion to $2.71 billion, and profits from $354 million to $367 million.
