Red Dead Redemption 2 Achieves the Single-Biggest Opening Weekend in The History of Entertainment

Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 is doing the rounds already and has reportedly "achieved the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days". 

This really is a great achievement and is refreshing and very deserving to see something that has evidently had so much time and effort put into it receive its dues. Though it is not surprising at all to see a Rockstar game hit these achievements. Grand Theft Auto V was making the rounds in its early days too, expectedly. 

Rockstar Games is proud to announce that the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2has achieved the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games’ previously released title, Grand Theft Auto V, which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days.
