The most infamous have been from YouTuber Shirrako, who posted such charmingly named videos as "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Beating up annoying feminist" and "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Deporting A Mexican".

We will, of course, keep you outlaws up to date on any further details when they eventually ride into view. Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on PS4 and Xbox One.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed in a recent investors call that Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode, Red Dead Online, will be heading to consoles towards the end of the month. As a matter of fact, Rockstar Games' parent company, Take-Two Interactive, has now officially declared that RDR2's sales have already outpaced the original game's total lifetime figures after just a couple of weeks of being available. For example, it's the "most pre-ordered" full game ever released on the PlayStation Network, while also taking the platform's crown for the game with the "biggest" day one sales period.

"Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players", the announcement states. "More than 2,000 people brought "Red Dead Redemption 2" to the audience and delivered this incredible result".

Take-Two Interactive released its financials for the second quarter ended September 30, reporting an 11 percent increase in revenue to $492.7 million thanks to successful sales of National Basketball Association 2K19.
