Rockstar Games has, once again, found massive success as they returned to their critical hit Western Franchise, Red Dead Redemption. The sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, was released only a few weeks ago and has already exceeded the massive expectations that were placed upon it.

The Director of Destiny at developer Bungie, Luke Smith, rebuked Activision directly on twitter over the weekend, after reports of investors at Activision being unhappy with Destiny 2 sales and seemingly wanting to monetize the game further.
