As we’ve already said, Cities: Skylines is Paradox’s fastest selling title. A couple of days ago, we informed you about the game’s sales surpassing 250K copies in just a day. And today, we are happy to report that Cities: Skylines has surpassed 500K sold copies worldwide.
As Cities: Skylines official Twitter account claimed.
Looks like we broke the 500k barrier, HUGE thanks to every single Chirpy who has supported us so far! <3

Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order were really embraced by the PC gaming community. Instead of locking its title and slapping an always-online DRM, Colossal decided to win PC gamers by making the paid version of Cities: Skylines superior to the pirated version.
In order to achieve something like that, Colossal released proper mod tools for its title, and in just a week we’ve seen some pretty amazing mods for it.
Paradox and Colossal also promised to continue working on this title by offering constant updates that will fix – and perhaps add new free content – issues reported by its fanbase.
