    Crossed 1 million around 10/31/2016
    Data is only up to 11/1/2016 so it's probably close 1.1 million now assuming it is adding 30k sales a day

    I think that is great news. I wonder how many folks are playing.

    It's listed on the link. 1 million played in the past 2 weeks so a 1-1 ratio and peak at 66k yesterday. It was around 100k playing on the weekend

    What's really interesting is Civ 6 was the 3rd most played game at the time I looked, and Civ 5 was 6th I believe.

    It's a popular franchise with a massive prerelease marketing campaign, this is isn't a real surprise. Having customers that are the type of people that will buy a bad game and not care because it's only the "vanilla" version doesn't hurt. What will surprise is if this game continues to sell after the hype fades and reality sets in.

    Fastest selling. Interesting. so it beat Civ 5. Civ 5 is btw nearing 10 million on steam spy. Maybe they include reinstalls but 2k is only confirming over 8 million for their PR

    Maybe there should be a one day general strike by gamers to protest the broken AI and poor UI?

    Maybe just the 100 or so that care would be more appropriate.

    Consider my "like" as a "love" instead. :love:
