"NBA 2K fans around the world are buying this title faster and in greater numbers than ever before," 2K's basketball operations SVP, Jason Argent, said in a statement.
NBA 2K16 also set a new record for digital copies sold, doubling sales from last year's game, NBA 2K15, during its first week. In addition, gamers have played nearly triple the number of online games so far compared to NBA 2K15.
Overall, NBA 2K16 still has a lot of work to do to catch up to NBA 2K15, which has shipped more than 7 million copies.
GameSpot's NBA 2K16 review scored the game an 8/10.
"Few sports games come close to providing a more authentic and fun virtual representation of the real thing, and even if this is the least user-friendly entry in years, I can't stop playing it," reviewer Josiah Renaudin said.
NBA 2K16 is available now for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. A free companion app, MyNBA 2K16, which features Paul George on the cover, is also available now on iTunes and Google Play.
