MScience noted that Twitter mentions for Red Dead Redemption 2 were "significantly lower" than the other franchises.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is galloping into the record books thanks to its three-day haul of $725 million, which represents the single-biggest sales weekend enjoyed by any brand in any medium in entertainment history.

Full list of sales achievements by Red Dead Redemption 2. Even though it has continued to be one of the most requested ports for PC, Rockstar has never shown any interest in bringing RDR to computers.

Which could mean that all these references simply point to a PC version of the companion app, rather than an actual full-blown port of the game for the platform.

Highest one-day sales for a PlayStation game.

Forward-looking: Red Dead Redemption 2 is off to an excellent start and in the long-term, could challenge Grand Theft Auto V as Rockstar's biggest moneymaker. However, this could be because Rockstar was working on porting GTAV to PS4, Xbox One, and PC simultaneously.

The strong initial sales are good, but more importantly they seemingly create a wide base for Red Dead Online, the multiplayer portion of the game that is planned to launch (in beta) next month.
