Red Dead Redemption II Has Shipped 23 Million Copies

In a Take-Two earnings call, the publisher behind Red Dead Redemption II revealed that the anticipated old west game has shipped 23 million copies to retailers since its October launch. That means that, since the initial week-one shipment Take-Two reported in November, Red Dead has shipped an extra six million copies over the holiday.

This is another distinction between shipped and sold, so it does not necessarily mean that Red Dead Redemption II has sold 23 million copies, but it's probably pretty close. Despite this huge number, Take-Two's stock price is overall lower than expected, so Red Dead alone isn't solving all their problems. 

It was reported by the NPD group that Red Dead Redemption pulled ahead of Call of Duty to be the best selling game of the year in the United States, though with the caveat that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's PC sales were not counted in its total. Assuming Red Dead Redemption continues to sell, though, it's likely that retailers will continue ordering more copies.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered Gets Release Date And Trailer

Assassin's Creed III Remastered Gets Release Date And Trailer

Ratonhnhaké:ton (a.k.a. Connor) makes the leap to current generation hardware for anyone looking to fill any gaps in their Assassin's Creed history. The release date is March 29 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, so you won't have to wait too long to get started. The trailer shows what made the game stand out when it originally released in 2012 like climbing on trees and its impressive naval battles. It also highlights the graphical differences from that original version with better lighting and character models that make use of the hardware change.

The most important aspect of this release, though, is that in addition to Assassin's Creed III and all of its DLC, you will also get Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Remastered as part of the same purchase. The Vita game was an excellent side-story that many people skipped over because it was exclusive to a handheld, but Aveline's story is well worth seeing through if you missed the Vita version or its later port to 360 and PS3.

For anyone with the Assassin's Creed Odyssey season pass, these two games will be included with that purchase, but this release date is for the standalone product. There was, though, no word in the trailer of the recently rumored Switch version of the game, so there might yet be more news on this game forthcoming.

Time Is Of The Essence

Time Is Of The Essence

Customization – whether it's visual or via multi-faceted weapons – is a big part of God Eater 3 (PS4 and PC), and what better way to rise to a fight against the Aragami than with a co-op crew ready for the occasion?

The game is out very soon – February 8 – and its latest trailer shows off timed Assault Missions featuring eight players. The task? Taking down powerful foes within a five-minute time limit.

Assault Missions aren't the game's only multiplayer. For more on this front, check out Imran's hands-on impressions of God Eater 3. Also check out this previous trailer.

Another Titanfall Game Coming This Year, New Twist On Universe

Another Titanfall Game Coming This Year, New Twist On Universe

Just yesterday, Respawn confirmed that Titanfall 3 is not in development, and Apex Legends is currently their focus in terms of Titanfall games. Turns out that's not the entire story, though the whole story still likely does not involve Titanfall 3. In their earnings call today, EA revealed that there is one more Titanfall game coming out this year aside from Apex Legends, though it is seemingly not a traditional Titanfall game.

In prepared remarks, EA CEO Andrew Wilson talked a little bit about the success of Apex Legends, which is the bright shining spot in an otherwise bummer year for the company despite only being a day old. "As the live service evolves," Wilson stated, "Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe. More to come on that in the months ahead."

In this context, "premium" means a paid game, not a free-to-play title like Apex Legends.
