Red Dead Redemption 2, the highly awaited Western adventure video-game, made over $725 million (roughly Rs. 5,300 crores) in worldwide retail sales during its opening weekend, driving shares of game developer Take-Two 12 percent higher on Tuesday. And now they're paying for it - literally. We have also agreed to donate over £1 million to charities chosen by Take-Two Games, ' said Trusted Reviews.
A site by the name of Trusted Reviews has issued a statement today, apologizing for a leak for the hit sequel that went out earlier this year.
So what happened? Trusted Reviews published a post explaining the matter. Because Rockstar is planning to release the official soundtrack soon, featuring Woody Jackson's atmospheric and dynamic score, as well as original music recorded especially for the game by a variety of award-winning artists.

It gave co-owners Winstar Farm and China Horse Farm another significant win six months after claiming the Derby with Justify. Though unable to seriously threaten the victor , Restless Rider was able to hold off Vibrance by a 1/2-length.
"Take-Two takes security seriously and will take legal action against people or publications who leak confidential information", Rockstar statement reads.
Rockstar states that the "settlement funds" will be donated to the American Indian College Fund, the American Prairie Reserve, and the First Nations Development Institute.
"We should have known this information was confidential and should not have published it". The leak also predicted the arrival of RDR2's companion app for mobile devices, which Rockstar would go on to make available just ahead of the game's October 26 release. In the United Kingdom, there is a public interest defence for this kind of reporting, although following it through in the courts can be a costly endeavour beyond the means of many publications. If you haven't been playing RDR2 for yourself over this past week, I can personally say that the music is fantastic and has been one of my favorite aspects so far.
