RED DEAD REDEMPTION ONLINE BETA COMING SOON!
Rockstar Games has received huge success from their recently released Red Dead Redemption 2. The game seemed to be feared by other competitors, as some had chosen to release their games at another time; due to the observable, yet painfully obvious amount attention that the game will have gained. Blackops 4 had to be released before the game dropped, while Battlefield 5 had been moved to the month of November.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is as good as single-player only game as we speak, however, there’s been news released that speaks more of the beta for Red Dead Redemption Online. The game is one of the best selling games of the month of October–so that looks to be translating over into November–and also it’s one of the best selling games of the year. This gives the beta a much broader player base by the time Red Dead Redemption Online makes its place on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. The beta is set to release at the end of this month, and judging by the sales numbers, there will be plenty of players involved with testing it out before Rockstar and their parent company Take-Two Interactive make the necessary tweaks and updates to the game, before the official release.
You can already imagine that the game will feature microtransactions that allow players to purchase what they’d like, optionally, similar to Rockstar’s GTA Online.
NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella has given notable information by saying “With just nine days of reported sales, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second best-selling game of October 2018 and is now also the second best-selling game year to date”
“Red Dead Redemption 2 launch month sales more than tripled those of the previous title in the series, Red Dead Redemption, which launched May 2010” said Piscatella.
“Activision Blizzard was the highest revenue generating publisher for the month of October, while Take-Two Interactive have achieved the highest total revenue year to date.” he stated.
This could only mean that the main contributors to gamers sending $1.545 billion dollars in October was caused by Red Dead Redemption 2 and Blackops 4.
Take-Two Interactive will very likely receive even more money once Red Dead Redemption Online is released.
It’s also rumored that a trailer will be revealed for the online functionality soon, but gamers can only hope this is the truth as the beta is released.
