The impressive number has surpassed records set by some of 2K’s other massive franchises like Borderlands, Bioshock and NBA 2K and Mafia 3 is the “fastest-selling title in 2K Games history.”

Take-Two’s have had huge success with their other division, Rockstar Games, publishes franchises like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead, reporting in 2013 that GTA V made $800 million in its first 24 hours.  Take-Two will report earnings for its latest quarter later today and may share more details about the performance of Mafia 3 and its other games.
