In the least surprising turn of events this year, Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption II has lassoed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from the number one spot and galloped directly to the top of the heap.

In the least surprising turn of events this year, Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption II has lassoed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from the number one spot and galloped directly to the top of the heap.

Red Dead Redemption II actually had the largest opening weekend for any entertainment product in history, raking in USD$725 million in sales in just three days.

It is now the second highest grossing entertainment launch ever, just behind Grand Theft Auto V (which was released on a Tuesday, and also published by Rockstar).

Red Dead Redemption II has gone on to sell over 17 million copies and has moved more copies in eight days than the previous game in the series moved in eight years.

There have been several other new entries in the charts this week, including Just Dance 2019, LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4/5-7 Collection, and Diablo III: Eternal Collection – the much-anticipated Nintendo Switch port of Blizzard’s legendary RPG. It feels unlikely these will hover in the top 10 charts for too long, however.
