Mafia 3 is 2K Games’ fastest-selling game, 4.5 million copies shipped in its first week

2K Games has announced that Mafia 3 is its fastest-selling game to date. The publisher has shipped 4.5 million copies of Mafia 3 in its first week, surpassing even titles like Bioshock and Borderlands.

Do note that these are shipped copies to shops and not sold copies to consumers. Still, this is a really impressive number for such a game.

Unfortunately, though, the game still suffers from optimization issues on the PC.

As we’ve already wrote in our PC Performance Analysis article, Mafia 3 comes with some ridiculously high GPU requirements. However, the visuals on display do not really justify these high GPU requirements.

The game initially released with a 30fps lock on the PC, however Hangar 13 was quick to react and released – in a matter of days – a patch that resolved that issue.

Hangar 13 claimed that it is still working on improving the game’s performance, though we haven’t heard anything from the team since October 14th!
