Red Dead Redemption sales nearing 7 million

Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption has to date sold 6.9 million copies worldwide, publisher Take-Two’s quarterly financial results, released today, show.

The westerner was released for the PlayStation and Xbox 360 in mid-May.

According to chairman Strauss Zelnick, the Rockstar San Diego-developed title “shows the value of compelling content and its power to capture consumer interest.”

The title’s latest piece of add-on content, Liars & Cheats — detailed here — is expected later this month.
