How Long Does it Take to Complete Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 released to overwhelming critical praise, becoming one of the highest rated games of this entire generation.

The only recent official communication regarding cross-play has come from Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, who spoke recently at a Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference (H/T GameSpot), which is about as far away from the Wild West as you can get.

According to Take-Two, Red Dead Redemption 2 has racked up over $725 million in retail "sell-through", which means copies sold to actual customers and not just retailers themselves.

Those aren't the only accolades Take-Two called out, either: Rockstar's Cowboy epic is apparently the most pre-ordered full game ever sold on PlayStation Network, as well as the biggest day-one sales of any digital PlayStation games. "Eventually I think we will be in a cross-platform world, for a lot of titles", Zelnick says, adding that Microsoft are "basically already there [for cross-play]" and that "the closed system walls are coming down".

Also bordering on the obscene, the perennial Grand Theft Auto V has now passed 100 million copies sold.

"As a result of our strong second quarter performance and outstanding early results from Red Dead Redemption 2, we are raising our financial outlook for fiscal 2019, which is also poised to be a record year for Net Bookings and Adjusted Operating Cash Flow". You may have not noticed them because you can't see them while playing Red Dead Redemption 2.
