Take-Two on Monday said its Western-themed open world title Red Dead Redemption
, published under the Rockstar Games label, has shipped over 11 million units since its May 2010 release.
Developed by Rockstar San Diego, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game was a breakout hit when it released last year as a spiritual successor to the all-but-forgotten PlayStation 2 and Xbox game Red Dead Revolver
Those shipped figures include 2 million units of the standalone retail disc Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare
, which also released last year. Undead Nightmare
is also available for digital delivery, along with other Red Dead
Strong initial sales of Red Dead
during the April-June period last year helped create a challenging comparison to the same quarter this year, as Take-Two reported losses today
of $8.6 million, down from profits of $27.4 million year-on-year, and revenues that dropped to $334.4 million, down from $375.4 million.
Aside from strong commercial performance, Red Dead Redemption
was also critically acclaimed, winning major awards
, including Game of the Year award earlier this year at the Game Developers Choice Awards.
