Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on Xbox One and PS4.

Analyst are ecstatic over the sales of the Red Dead Redemption 2 open-world game, which takes inspiration from old Wild West movies. That's around 573 days worth or approximately 1 year and 7 months.

Still, it has a long way to go before it matches the success of Grand Theft Auto V. As of April, the action-adventure game had sold 90 million copies worldwide and generated $6 billion in revenue for Rockstar. According top the same press release, RDR 2 has sold through $725 million's worth in its first three days at retail, giving it the second best launch ever. This is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch ever behind Grand Theft Auto 5, another Rockstar Games release.

Highest first three-day sales on the PlayStation Network. That's going to come when Red Dead Online launches and they can start charging microtransactions for people who want more in-game cash and other assorted items.

Red Dead Redemption 2 hit a PR snag when, just weeks before release, co-founder Dan Houser made comments that seemed to suggest the studio had undergone periods of heavy crunch development. The Rockstar game's release Friday also led to several new records for the PlayStation Network, where Red Dead Redemption now ranks as the most pre-ordered full game ever; biggest one-day seller among full games; and the biggest three-day seller among full games.
