Take Two Interactive has shipped roughly 17 million units of Red Dead Redemption 2 in the first two weeks of it being available, the publisher confirmed earlier this week.


The new figure comes from the publishers quarterly report, which states it has shipped roughly 17 million units to stores worldwide. The figure should not be confused with direct sales, as the figure only encapsulates shipments to stores.

The figure means the game has already sold more copies than the first game Red Dead Redemption, which has sold roughly 15 million units worldwide.

Take Two Interactive has made over 725 million dollar in revenue in the first week of the game being available. The revenue from microtransactions, downloadable content and in-game stores accounted for 49 percent of the total revenue last quarter.

The upcoming online mode for the game, Red Dead Online, is expected to increase this percentage via the introduction of Buffalo cards, the equivalent of Grand Theft Auto Online Shark Cards.

Red Dead Redemption 2 released on October 26, 2018, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A PC release was not announced.
