Red Dead Redemption 2 has one of Rockstar’s biggest critical and commercial hits since it launched in 2018, selling more than 36 million copies so far. Red Dead Online, which was introduced not long after the game debuted, has also proven to be successful as player numbers have continued to rise since the multiplayer component became a standalone offering.
