NBA 2K16 has broken franchise sales records. 2K Sports on Friday announced that the pro basketball game sold-in more than 4 million copies around the world within its first week. The game was officially released on September 29, though people who preordered could start playing on September 25.
NBA 2K16 also set a new record for digital copies sold, doubling sales from last year’s game, NBA 2K15, during its first week. In addition, gamers have played nearly triple the number of online games so far compared to NBA 2K15.
Overall, NBA 2K16 still has a lot of work to do to catch up to NBA 2K15, which has shipped more than 7 million copies worldwide. However, with these numbers it looks like NBA 2K16 may go over and beyond the 7 million mark.
