‘NBA 2K18’s Sales Numbers Were Quite Impressive In Its First Month
There were some issues at launch and some uproar about virtual currency and microtransactions, but fans still clearly love NBA 2K18.
NBA 2K18 was the top selling sports game of September 2017. With one month of sales NBA 2K18 also became the best-selling sports game year to date. NBA 2K18 had the largest consumer spend in launch month of any Sports genre title since the current generation of consoles launched in November 2013. NBA 2K18 was the second best-selling game of September overall.
The sales success are an indication of the popularity of the sport of basketball and the massive hold 2K has over the virtual hoops market. Even in a year that saw 2K’s only competition (NBA Live from EA Sports) return with its strongest effort in years, the franchise has still seemingly further entrenched its brand amongst virtual hoops fans.
At this point, 2K isn’t competing with the sales of other titles within its genre. It’s competing on a grander scale with titles like Destiny, Call of Duty and Battlefield. That’s a significant accomplishment for a game so centralized in its theme.
Each year it appears the hype and the release get even bigger. With this level of success comes increased criticism, and I think 2K is feeling the brunt of that more than ever this year. However, the team and all those associated with the product are apparently doing something right.
