Rockstar Games' "Red Dead Redemption 2" broke records with its opening weekend numbers.

The actual top dog when it comes to being the highest grossing entertainment launch goes to another game developed by Rockstar however; Grand Theft Auto V, which opened with an absurd $1 billion in its first three days.

The massive opening sales has officially put the game up on Grand Theft Auto V's level.

According to the source, Rockstar is not turning their full attention to "GTA 6" right away after the release of "Red Dead Redemption 2" last week.

The company said Red Dead Redemption 2 achieved more than $725 million of retail sales worldwide during its first three days, blowing the investment banking company Piper Jaffray's past projections of $400 million to $500 million.

The game is also now the highest ever scored game on the PlayStation 4, with an average score of 97 on Metacritic, and the same on Xbox One.

Another user BLAQKROXSTAR mirrored this sentiment, saying "Yea I exhausted turning off HDR because my video clips looked like trash and the game looks disgusting without HDR".

Red Dead Redemption 2 players will want to grab the legendary bear pelt in order to craft an awesome outfit for Arthur Morgan. In Red Dead Redemption II, I bought the Cattleman Revolver; however, I didn't pick up on Rockstar's dig upon itself regarding the overtime that had cast a dark cloud over Read Dead Redemption II's release. Red Dead Online is the evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways.
