It’s been a good third quarter for publisher Take-Two, which posted $1.57 billion in net bookings, $1.248 billion in revenue, and $350 million in gross profit. The success is thanks in no small part to stellar sales of its rootin’-tootin’ outlaw-shootin’ sandbox Red Dead Redemption 2, which has sold a staggering 23 million copies since its October release, vastly exceeding the company’s expectations. On top of shipping more copies in its first 15 days than the original Red Dead did in eight years, the title also had “the highest opening weekend of any title in entertainment history of any sort,” according to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. The game’s multiplayer component, Red Dead Online, has also been performing remarkably well, “trending ahead of how GTA Online was performing by the same point in its lifecycle.” The success of RDO also probably has something to do with the company’s “significant growth in … [Read more...] about Red Dead Redemption 2 leads the charge in Take-Two’s unexpectedly successful third quarter

According to recent reports from Variety, Kotaku, and Gamasutra, British technology website TrustedReviews has pulled a February article that published leaked information about Rockstar Games’s Red Dead Redemption 2 eight months prior to its release and has donated about $1.3 million US to charity in compensation. In an apology issued to Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive, TrustedReviews writes, “On February 6, 2018, we published an article that was sourced from a confidential corporate document. We should have known this information was confidential and should not have published it. We unreservedly apologise to Take-Two Games and we have undertaken not to repeat such actions again. We have also agreed to donate over £1 million to charities chosen by Take-Two Games.” According to Variety, neither company responded to questions regarding whether the site broke any laws in acquiring the leaked information, though Take-Two did issue the following … [Read more...] about Take-Two seems to have strong-armed a British tech site over Red Dead Redemption 2 leaks
I have to wonder whether Bethsoft is having some regrets right now. It seems to me that Fallout 76’s beta is being completely overshadowed by the release of Red Dead Redemption. Part of that is probably because the beta is a truncated, discrete ordeal, with windows for testing rather than an always-up scenario (and the PC launch was a bit of a mess). But it’s not really just a test; the game is still supposed to launch on November 14th, and everything players do during these tests carries over into live. It’s more like an early access or even a headstart. And yet all anyone’s talking about is their red deads. I’m not even sure that will be alleviated much in November, either, given that Red Dead Online is supposed to kick off then too, giving Fallout 76 even more competition. If it weren’t Bethsoft, I’d suspect they’d postpone the launch. In fact, when I first started reading the letter to fans ahead of the beta last week, something about … [Read more...] about Leaderboard: Are you playing Fallout 76, Red Dead Redemption 2, or neither?
Considering that Wild West Online is a wild dud these days, players looking for multiplayer western action are turning their eyes to Red Dead Redemption 2. The game is coming out for consoles on October 26th, but Rockstar Games continues to be cagey as to whether or not the open-world title will make an appearance (as is rumored) on PC. One thing we do know a bit more about the game this week is how it will look and play, thanks to a six-minute gameplay video that highlights the various activities and features that this highly anticipated sequel will contain. Polygon says it’s impossible for the studio to give a real feel for the Red Dead Redemption experience in a series of quick video clips, so take this with a grain of salt. Rockstar did confirm that it will be supporting the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro with this fall release, in case you have the best console hardware the market has to offer.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is suffering another long delay, this time to October. The new official launch date is October 26th, 2018. “We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay,” Rockstar said today on its blog. “While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish.” The game was first announced in October of 2016 with a fall 2017 launch planned. But by May of last year, Rockstar had already pushed that estimate off into 2018, barely making its own “summer” deadline to pick spring 2018 for the console launch. But hey, at least they pushed out a bunch of screenshots to keep us busy.
