Analyst Doug Creutz of Cowan and Company is predicting that Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption will sell 4 million copies worldwide in it’s first year.
“Red Dead has been perched at the top of the online retailer best seller lists for several weeks now, and we believe it is poised for breakout success,” he said in a note to investors. “Although this positions Red Dead to be another core franchise for Take-Two, given the time between Rockstar franchise iterations, it is possible we might not see another Red Dead title until the next console cycle.”
RDR launches May 21st in the UK on PS3 and Xbox 360. Rockstar released the launch trailer for the game this week which you can have a peek at here.
