Take-Two, the publishers of Red Dead Redemption 2, shared some sales numbers for Q3 of 2019. The company stated Red Dead Redemption 2 “sold-in more than 23 million units worldwide.” To be fair, “sold-in” really represents the number shipped to retailers and not consumers.
However, Take-Two’s revenue grew to $1.2 billion, up from the $480 million during the same time last year. The top three largest contributers to the doubling of their revenue were: Red Dead Redemption 2, NBA 2K19 and NBA 2K18, among others.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was also one of the largest contributors to digitally-delievered revenue, alongside Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V.
Take-Two also mentioned its “consumers engaged significantly with our offerings, and recurrent consumer spending grew 31%,” which is a new record.
Red Dead Redemption 2 outsold its predecessor by quite a bit and in a must faster amount of time. Red Dead Redemption has sold 15 million units in total since it was released eight years ago. Red Dead 2 flew past this number, having sold more copies in the first eight days.
