Red Dead Redemption 2 Shipped 25 Million Units; Grand Theft Auto V Passed 110 Million Units
Today, during Take-two financial conference call for investors and analysts, the company’s executives provided an update on shipments for Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2.
Chief Executive Officer Strauss Zelnick announced that the massively-popular western game has passed 25 million units shipped as of June 30, 2014, which is the end of the past fiscal quarter.
We also heard that rockstar’s veteran game Grand Theft Auto V passed 110 Million units shipped. Back in May, Take-Two mentioned it had sold-in “nearly” 110 million units, and apparently, now that milestone has been overtaken. This is nearly six years after the game’s release in 2013.
Red Dead Redemption 2’s massive popularity is certainly also due to its extensive multiplayer mode Red Dead Online, which Rockstar continues to update at a regular pace with new content and goodies.
