Red Dead Redemption 2 made $725m at launch, making it the 2nd biggest entertainment launch ever

Red Dead Redemption 2 smashes global sales records, has the biggest opening weekend of any entertainment product ever

We have also agreed to donate over £1 million to charities chosen by Take-Two Games, ' said Trusted Reviews.

It wouldn't be at all surprising to see Red Dead Redemption 2 become the most profitable entertainment product of all time in a few years, a title now held by the aforementioned GTA V. When compared to GTA V, Red Dead Redemption 2 takes the number two spot in the record list, generating $725m.

Now, that article is gone. The game sold over US$725 million in retail in its first three days on store shelves, which is just a shocking, shocking figure.

Trusted Reviews, a plugged-in review site that covers everything from microwave ovens to cell phones to video games, issued a contrite statement this week after reaching an arrangement with Take-Two Interactive, the corporate parent of RDR2 publisher Rockstar Games.

Leaked information on upcoming video games is especially good if you happen to have an inside source who can spill a few beans that serves the public in terms of information that they should know about. We unreservedly apologise to Take-Two Games and we have undertaken not to repeat such actions again.

"Take-Two takes security seriously and will take legal action against people or publications who leak confidential information", Rockstar statement reads. Red Dead Redemption 2 is also boasts the highest pre-order count, highest day-one sales and highest first three-day sales of any game on the PlayStation Network. Of course, the legal costs for defending oneself can often make the act of litigation itself punishment enough.
