  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Suggests PC Version Exists

While it has fallen to fourth place today, as of press time, it bagged some great figures while on top.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is now the highest critically reviewed game on the PlayStation 4, with an average score of 97 on Metacritic, and the top game on Xbox One, also with an average score of 97 on Metacritic. It boggles the mind, really.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now the second-biggest entertainment launch of all time, behind only Grand Theft Auto V, developer Rockstar Games has announced.

The discrepancy between biggest opening weekend and biggest overall launch comes down to the fact that the last GTA was released on a Tuesday.

MScience noted that Twitter mentions for Red Dead Redemption 2 were "significantly lower" than the other franchises. But some code in the game's companion app, as first reported by RockstarIntel, has references to a PC version.

It will be interesting to see how many copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 get sold during the holiday season and to see how Red Dead Online differs from Grand Theft Auto Online.

Unit sales were not made available for Red Dead Dead Redemption 2 and, with console-bundled sales in the mix, the tally is an elusive one to determine mathematically.

"Red Dead Redemption 2 is a story of endings and new beginnings, of the birth of legends and the consequences that come with creating a myth". "The important part for investors is how this game now looks poised to generate high margin revenue for the next four or five years".
