Red Dead Online Beta to Arrive 'Towards the End' of November

All things considered, with this huge figure already under Red Dead Redemption 2's belt after such a short amount of time, it causes one to wonder just how much of a sales boost the game could get once Rockstar introduces its multiplayer component, Red Dead Online. In addition to the base game, Rockstar is planning to launch Red Dead Online - a highly anticipated multiplayer expansion that takes place in Red Dead Redemption 2's open world.

On Wednesday, the game publisher posted fiscal-second-quarter sales and profits above Street estimates and raised its guidance for the year. We won't spoil the reward other than to say it makes tracking down all of the Dreamcatchers worth the effort.

That's not a no, but as expected, Take-Two is keeping its cards tight to its chest.

Digitally-delivered revenue grew 18 percent to $358.4 million and made up for 73 percent of the total revenue, with the company noting that the split between digital download sales and physical sales are moving faster than initially anticipated.

Take-Two stock was down 4.3% to $120.36 in early afternoon trading on Thursday.

Red Dead Online will also evolve with regular updates.
