Red Dead Redemption 2 is galloping into the record books thanks to its three-day haul of $725 million, which represents the single-biggest sales weekend enjoyed by any brand in any medium in entertainment history.
"Red Dead" is described by Rockstar as the "first game built from the ground up for new generation hardware, and seamlessly blends gameplay and storytelling".
