I could start a new thread for this but here you go.:)

GTA 5 has over 155 million, Red Dead Redemption 2 39 million.

Take-Two has revealed some new sales details about Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. According to the company, GTA 5 has over 155 million units sold-in, whereas Red Dead Redemption 2 has over 39 million units sold-in.

Take-Two claimed that GTA 5 reached $1 billion in retail sales faster than any entertainment release in history. Moreover, the company stated that the franchise has sold-in over 355 million units. Take-Two also claims that GTA Online will be constantly evolving, and that Rockstar will keep supporting it. After all, a standalone version will come out in March 2022.

On the other hand, the Red Dead franchise has sold-in nearly 62 million units worldwide. Additionally, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the 2nd best-selling title in US in past 3 years based on dollar sales.

Fuck Rockstar and/or Take2 if it's true. It's so idiotic that I find it hard to believe. But I guess nothing is impossible. They do a shitty job of it, and then act all surprised at the shitty outcome and base other decisions on that? God they would be stupid if it were true.

Anyway, I'm just salty since I would've loved if they brought RDR1 to modern systems.

There's no basis for saying that. Every GTA and RDR has been single player first and foremost.

Considering how rarely they release singleplayer games you could be excused for not believing that. They're spending 5-8-10+ years between games, and inbetween that time they churn out gambling or microtransactions for their main money makers.

So I would love the chance to play the older great games, like RDR1, which is only available on PS3 and Xbox360. That could do a bit to fill the inbetween.

They've never cranked out games, long before there was any multiplayer version of anything. But it also hasn't ever been "8-10+ years" between them either. GTA IV was in 2008, RDR 1 in 2010, GTA V in 2013, and RDR 2 in 2018.

Spreading their attention to rehashing their past library certainly isn't going to make them put out games any faster.

I'm fine with that given the PC audience gets shafted with every new game they release. I'm referring to the massive amount of bloated DRM that RockStar puts into the game.

You couldn't even play the GTA remastered Trilogy till they fixed the DRM.

Well, it's not as if they had actually started on a RDR remaster. It sounds like they were only throwing the idea around.
