Mafia 3 Is The Fastest Selling 2K Game Ever
More than 4.5m copies of the open-world crime game were shipped during its first week on sale. Now, that’s not copies sold to customers; it’s copies shipped to shops. But it’s an impressive first week haul, nonetheless.
Mafia 3, then, has sold faster than the likes of BioShock and Borderlands. But it has some way to go before becoming 2K’s best-selling game. That accolade belongs to Borderlands 2, which has sold an impressive 13m copies since going on sale in 2012.
There’s downloadable content still on its way to Mafia 3, as part of its season pass. There’s also a mobile game based on the title available now; Mafia 3 Rivals is free to play.
2K Games is a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive, as is Rockstar Games, developer of Grand Theft Auto. While Mafia 3 is 2K Games’ fastest-seller, Take-Two announced during a call to investors that it has shipped 70 million copies of Grand Theft Auto 5 thus far. That’s the developer’s biggest game to-date, further buoyed by the success of online component Grand Theft Auto Online.
