To say the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption II is a financial success is an understatement. The official word from Rockstar is the prequel raked in over $725 million dollars worldwide, was the most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network, garnered the biggest day one sales of a full game ever on PlayStation Network, and had the biggest entertainment launch of 2018.

The developer also couldn't resist mentioning Red Dead Redemption II was second only to Grand Theft Auto V in highest-grossing launch ever. The previously released Rockstar title brought in $1 billion in its opening three days.
