Not too long ago, we received reports that numbers for Red Dead Online were floundering, especially when compared to the behemoth that is GTA Online, but during their recent conference call in their financial meeting for the final quarter of financial year 2018-19, Take-Two Interactive provided updates that suggest otherwise.

Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick has confirmed that Red Dead Online has been performing very well for the company (though did not provide any metric by which said success is being measured). How well, exactly? Apparently, it’s performing better than Grand Theft Auto Online launch aligned. “Red Dead Online is performing better than Grand Theft Auto Online did at the same stage of the game,” said Zelnick.

That success, it seems, will only continue to grow, as Zelnick also announced that Red Dead Online will be going out of the beta stage it has been in since its soft launch in November of last year and releasing in full by the end of the current quarter- which means Red Dead Online will launch in full by June 30th. That launch will come with “significant new content”, including “gameplay balancing and bug fixes”.

Take-Two Interactive also provided updated sales figures for both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 5, and it’s safe to say that both games have continued to sell well (though Red Dead in particular does seem to have slowed down). Meanwhile, in related news, speculation for a PC release of Red Dead Redemption 2 recently sparked up again, when the version popped up on a former Rockstar employee’s resume.
