Many would have expected Red Dead Redemption 2 to sky-rocket it’s way to number 1 in all sales. However in Physical sales it has come second overall this year.

Where it has beaten games like Spider-Man and God of War, some of this years biggest games, it still hasn’t been able to take the top spot.

Surprisingly FIFA 19 has the most physical sales of the year to its name. FIFA has an advantage over games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Spider-Man as it is on all platforms. Red Dead Redemption 2 is only on Xbox and PS4 and Spider-Man only PS4. This is only in the UK however as the US numbers aren’t yet available.

It has been a long 8 years since Red Dead Redemption 1 launched and players fell in love with it. It is also no surprise that Red Dead Redemption 2 has doubled the sales of its predecessor for week one sales. A massive Achievement for any game but still not quite enough to reach the heady heights of GTA V. GTA V sold two million copies in its original launch week which Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn’t got near.

What is also interesting is that 68 percent of the sales of Red Dead Redemption 2 are on PlayStation. This is probably because PlayStation users were taken with the timed exclusive pieces that come with buying the game on console.

If you don’t have a PS4 or an Xbox One and you are more of a PC gamer then never fear, Red Dead Redemption 2 could be coming your way sooner than you think.

One of the largest electronic retailers in Europe had a listing on their website for the new upcoming game from Rockstar which seems to give us the impression that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC, but at a later date than the console version.

The Retailer, mediamarkt had the game listed for the date of December 31st 2019. This is a common placeholder for games that haven’t yet had the release date confirmed by the developers of the game. However if we remember back to just before E3 when Walmart Canada accidentally leaked almost all of the games that were going to be announced at this years E3. It seems like this could be a very similar situation.
