Take-Two has announced that Grand Theft Auto V has shipped more than 80 million units worldwide, while 2K’s Mafia III has now sold-in more than 5 million units. NBA 2K17 has nearly shipped 8 million units and Civilization VI has sold-in nearly 2 million units.
In addition, Take-Two revealed that the entire Civilization series has sold more than 40 million units worldwide.
Now while Take-Two did not reveal any specific platform numbers, we can take a look at Steamspy in order to get an idea of what is happening.
According to Steamspy’s datas, Civilization VI has sold 1.89 million units on the PC (which is identical to Take-Two’s numbers).
GTA V has sold 7.15 million units on Steam, however we should keep in mind that the game is also available for purchase via Rockstar’s Social Club. As such, we can’t determine the exact number of PC units that were sold for this particular title.
Mafia III has sold 520K units on Steam. Apparently PC gamers did not enjoy this new Mafia game. Still, you should keep in mind that Take-Two did not reveal the number of units that were sold, but rather the number of units that were shipped to stores.
Last but not least, NBA 2K17 has sold 245K units on Steam.
In unrelated news, Take-Two has announced that a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises is currently under development.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
