I was going to say that seems really low, but is is a PC only game so all the sales are probably digital. I'm surprised it even had a retail release.

Here have this disk.. it has a copy of steam on it.

There are 1.16 million owners on steam according to SteamSpy! Retail PC is meaningless.

That's probably not bad, considering it probably sold much, much more digitally.

Probably much more than that, since it's had some ridiculously good discounts... I've almost been screaming for them to take my money several times in the last few years despite having owned the game for a long time already.

Probably 2-3 million, Civ is the best game in this genre: easy to play, fun, challenging in the hard modes, it is so cool.
