Social Analytics firm Fizziology has claimed that, after analysing over 800,000 tweets, Red Dead Redemption 2 caused 1.5x more people to take the day off of work than Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Some more claims have been made by the firm, citing their independent research. Apparently, Red Dead Redemption 2 caused 3x more people to skip work than Spider-Man and God of War, and 12x more people than Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

They also mentioned that Red Dead Redemption 2 is averaging over 14,000 mentions on twitter every hour. Sounds serious.

We'll have to see how well Red Dead Redemption 2 sold in terms of copies over this weekend when Take-Two report their earnings on November 7th.
