"Red Dead Redemption 2" has been an unqualified hit for Rockstar Games, which may be best known for its "Grand Theft Auto" series. "Red Dead" accumulated $ 725 million in sales worldwide in its first three days, a figure second only to Rockstar's "Grand Theft Auto V", the largest seller of all time, which raised $ 1 billion in its first three days when it was launched on September 17, 2013.

An online expansion could mean that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will trot into the future in the coming years. Rockstar continues to provide new experiences to its "Grand Theft Auto Online", an online multiplayer expansion of "GTA V" that is now 5 years old.

Among the experiences that Rockstar promises in "Red Dead Online", according to its online publication: "Explore the world alone or with friends, form or join a Posse to travel with up to seven players, gather around the fire in your camp; Hunt or fish, visit bustling cities, fight against enemy gangs and attack their hiding places, search for treasures, undertake missions and interact with familiar characters of the five states, or fight against other outlaws in spontaneous skirmishes and prepared battles; Compete with other players or with Posses in open world challenges and much more.
