That's not much detail for a hugely important game mode set to launch in about three weeks, but the structure sounds similar to that of GTA Online, which immediately became a fan favorite and has helped drive sales over the years.

According to Take-Two, Red Dead Redemption 2 has racked up over $725 million in retail "sell-through", which means copies sold to actual customers and not just retailers themselves.


Grand Theft Auto V is still selling well, and Grand Theft Auto Online is exceeding company expectations even ahead of Red Dead Redemption 2's release. Take-Two Interactive also revealed in their earnings report that the recently released Red Dead Redemption 2 has so far sold 17 million copies worldwide, selling more copies in 8 days than Red Dead Redemption 1 had sold in 8 years.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on both PS4 and Xbox One, but if you haven't been paying close attention, you might be wondering where its multiplayer mode is and how to access it.


A brief summary of Read Dead Online on the Rockstar website reads as follows: "Red Dead Online is an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways".

Red Dead Online will also evolve with regular updates. Specifically, the studio says it expects turbulence at launch, and to work with the community to overcome "teething problems" and develop Red Dead Online over time.
