Cities: Skylines, the SimCity-inspired city-building game, has reached yet another sales milestone. The game, released March 10 for PC, Mac, and Linux, has now sold more than 1 million copies. By comparison, EA's latest SimCity game, which launched in 2013, has sold more than 2 million units as of July 2013.
“We continue to be amazed at just how players have embraced Cities: Skylines," he said in a statement. "The game is still selling at a steady pace, which is remarkable for a game that has been on sale for well over a month. Once again, we want to thank everyone that has supported and continues to support this game."
When Cities: Skylines sold 250,000 copies on its first day, the game became Paradox's fastest-selling game of all time.
Paradox also mentioned that Cities: Skylines players have already created an incredible 33,000 mods for the game on Steam Workshop, including those that riff on Grand Theft Auto V and Flight Simulator, among others. In addition, the game's current average concurrent player figure is 21,000.
