Red Dead Online public beta set to launch later this month

We're still calculating the chances of Red Dead 2 coming to PC, and right now Take-Two is just as hesitant to talk about Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC as Rockstar.

Net income increased to $25.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the comparable period a year ago.
