NBA® 2K16 Hits 4M Sales Milestone in Record Number of Days

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–2K today announced that NBA
, the latest iteration of the top-rated and top-selling
NBA video game simulation series*, has set an unprecedented franchise
record, selling-in over four million units worldwide within the first
week of release.

“Each year we set out to deliver not only the best on-court basketball
video game, but a full off-court entertainment experience that
transcends basketball,” said Jason Argent, senior vice president of
basketball operations at 2K. “NBA 2K fans around the world
are buying this title faster and in greater numbers than ever before.”

Continuing the success trajectory of one of the most dominant
entertainment franchises of the last decade, NBA 2K16
delivers the most dynamic and realistic sports gameplay yet and is
receiving tremendous critical acclaim. Media praise included a 9.0/10
review score from IGN, who said that “NBA 2K16 is a
great representation of the sport of basketball, and it plays like a
dream – both online and off”; and Sporting News called it “the
most impressive sports game ever assembled.”

this year’s iteration also has achieved several incredible
year-over-year milestones since launch, including doubling sales through
digital download and nearly tripling the number of games played online.

“Our goal was simple, make NBA 2K16 the most playable,
authentic basketball experience ever,” said Greg Thomas, president of
Visual Concepts. “The development team demonstrated tremendous
dedication to recreating every nuance of the sport both on and
off-court, which has been the driving force behind our early success.”

experience titled ‘Livin’ Da Dream’ written and directed by acclaimed
filmmaker Spike Lee and showcases three unique covers featuring NBA
superstars Stephen Curry, James Harden and Anthony Davis.

commitment to innovation, authenticity and gameplay – bringing fans the
very best with the NBA 2K franchise.”
