Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of 2K Games, released its earnings report for the second fiscal quarter of 2017. To the surprise of no one, NBA 2K17 has done very well.

The latest entry in the NBA 2K series has sold 4.5 million units since the game’s launch on September 20. Take-Two also announced that NBA 2K17 had a record-breaking first week for shipment, but they did not provide exact numbers.

In addition to NBA 2K17 selling well, NBA 2K16 was also responsible for revenue growth during the quarter.

Take-Two Interactive’s net revenue grew 21 percent to $420 million, which is an increase from $347 million during the same fiscal quarter in 2016.

Bookings, physical games shipped to retail and digital revenue, grew 28 percent to $452 million. This is up from $353 million during the same quarter last year. NBA 2K17 and 2K16 are cited as major drivers of growth in this area.

NBA 2K17 is available everywhere for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PC, and it will soon be coming to the yet to be released Nintendo Switch. Mobile versions of the game are also available for iOS, Windows, and Android.
