Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 absolutely flew off the shelves when it launched last month, and honestly, people really don’t have a bad word to say about it.
Pulling in shockingly impressive launch sales numbers, and wowing both fans and critics, RDR2 has just about become one of the most popular games of all time.
At least, people thought that was the case…
Now, to put that in perspective, Black Ops 4 released a whole two weeks before RDR2, giving it a chance to sell a butt-load more copies – especially considering that RDR2 launched in the last week of the month.
But, Black Ops 4 is reportedly the best-selling game of the whole of 2018, with its launch-month monetary sales jumping to the eighth highest on record (since NPD started tracking the sales of games in 1995).
@RockstarGames My Dear if you wan’t to sell more then COD,better release for PC RDR 2,because if you don’t probably COD will sell more then RDR2,Well, in case you do not want to eat dust better then launch to PC

Since #BlackOps multiplayer is basically their version of Overwatch and Blackout is PUBG/Fortnite, I say next year they take the RDR2 route and release Call of Duty: Wild West Warfare. Who says no? #CoD pic.twitter.com/9c5godpQYQ
