Mafia III has become 2K Games’ fastest-selling game ever, supplanting the likes of BioShock, Borderlands, and NBA 2K.
2K Games has a large portfolio of well-known and beloved franchises, but it is Mafia III that is now the fastest-selling game in the company’s portfolio. Parent company Take-Two Interactive has published their Q2 2017 Financial Report, and Mafia III has been doing quite well.
Mafia III launched October 7 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and shipped an impressive 4.5 million units. Take-Two did not reveal how many of those copies were sold-through to consumers, but its still an impressive number. Take-Two hopes to bring in additional revenue downloadable content for the game and the free-to-play mobile game, Mafia III Rivals.
Take-Two also highlighted sales for NBA 2K17. The game has shipped 4.5 million units since its September 20 launch. The company also reveled in the praise games like Civilization VI, XCOM 2, and BioShock: The Collection garnered, but didn’t discuss any sales figures.
