British website forks out £1 million over Red Dead Redemption 2 leak

03 November, 2018, 03:56 | Author: Patty Hardy
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 smashes global sales records, has the biggest opening weekend of any entertainment product ever

"Rockstar has produced another massive entertainment hit, we're not surprised", said Mike Hickey, a financial analyst at Benchmark Co.

We already know that Red Dead Redemption 2 dominated the United Kingdom physical sales charts over the weekend but it looks like overall global sales were much more impressive.

Take-Two shares were last up 11.9 percent at $125.05 (roughly Rs. 9,200) in premarket trading on Tuesday. The article - which has now been removed - mentioned first-person mode and a potential Battle Royale feature, the latter of which hasn't been officially revealed.

So what happened? Trusted Reviews published a post explaining the matter.

Rafael Nadal an injury doubt for London — ATP Finals
Then two games later, Nishikori again gave Anderson a run for his money on his serve, creating a few more break chances. The Russian will next play Alexander Zverev after the German fourth seed beat Diego Schwartzman of Argentina 6-4, 6-2.

This raises a plethora of issues and concerns regarding video game journalism, a field where leaks are far from uncommon.

"On February 6, 2018, we published an article that was sourced from a confidential corporate document", the website now reads.

"Take-Two takes security seriously and will take legal action against people or publications who leak confidential information", the company explained.

As of now, this is all we know about the soundtrack with a specific tracklist or release date still yet to be given. We unreservedly apologise to Take-Two Games and we have undertaken not to repeat such actions again. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games' previously released title, Grand Theft Auto V, which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days. There are laws to project media from this sort of thing, but it can be costly going through the courts.
