It has been revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has passed 24 million copies sold, information which comes courtesy of Take-Two Interactive's report on Q4 of the last fiscal year, ending on March 31. Here we also find out that the title is still selling, albeit at a slower rate, generating a million more copies than last quarter (and still sitting way off Grand Theft Auto V's lifetime sales of 110 million copies).
Alongside the sales statistics, it was also announced in a conference call (thanks, VentureBeat) that Red Dead Online would be leaving beta later this quarter (ending June 31). The online feature for the massively successful title has seen several updates in the last few months, and has been in beta since its launch at the end of last year.
When summarising the full report, Strauss Zelnick - Chairman and CEO of Take-Two - said: "Take-Two finished a stellar year with strong fourth quarter operating results highlighted by the outperformance of Grand Theft Auto Online and Graft Theft Auto V, as well as NBA 2K19, and significant sales of our ongoing blockbuster hit, Red Dead Redemption 2."
"We expect fiscal 2020 to be another strong year for Take-Two, with operating results currently forecasted to be lower than fiscal 2019, due to the extraordinary success of Red Dead Redemption 2 and growing as compared to fiscal 2018," Zelnick continued.
