SuperData's latest report shows us that Red Dead Redemption 2's sales more than doubled once it reached Steam, with SuperData's report also shows that Rockstar Games' announcement that it was coming to Steam meant that people held off buying it on the Epic Games Store.

The report reads: "Digital unit sales more than doubled from 406K in November to 1.0M in December. The game became available on Steam on December 5, one month after releasing elsewhere including the Epic Games Store and Rockstar Games Launcher. This brief exclusivity window was advertised in advance, so many players simply waited a short period to play the game on their preferred launcher".

I just wanted to share this because I think it is pretty interesting. Given all the complaints and people getting upset with the PC version, they still managed to double the sales because of the game being sold on Steam. If someone said something a few years ago about putting the game on PC being a bad idea and they listened, they would have missed out on TONS of cash.

I'm not surprised by this. People were always more likely to buy the game through Steam vs the Rockstar launcher/site. It just makes more sense to do it that way. I know some people through Steam who just buy games to buy them and have them in their collection.

It looks like the reviews are on the up and up as far as Steam goes. I guess this is a good thing. Maybe people are getting their issues with the game sorted finally. 

That can change overnight though so you can't really go based on that increase. Who knows, maybe Rockstar bought them positive reviews LOL

I doubt they paid for the reviews but I suppose you are right on the other thing. Lately, I haven't seen nearly as many complaints though so that is something.
