The quirky and crazy first person shooter, Borderlands 2 has shipped over 9 million copies according to its publisher, Take-Two. The earnings report revealed this as well as the fact that the game was 2K’s best selling game ever. Since it’s release, the game has received great reviews for its art style, humour, and gameplay along with frequent and meaningful DLC that keeps players coming back for more.
With large publishers ignoring the loot box backlash, it’s going to be toiugh to make them change.
Something new from Rockstar will be revealed soon.

In the Take-Two’s year-end financial call Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick announced they will have a game for the New-Gen System by the end of this Fiscal year. The game will be the first game from Rockstar on Microsofts Xbox One or Sony’s Playstation 4.
While fans (and some game writers) alike argue about PS4 vs Xbox One, NPD’s results paint a different picture for the stock markets. As we noted ourselves, software sales last March were down – and this is bad news for game companies in the stock markets.
So, practically all the big AAA game companies.
It can often be the case that a great game is not necessarily a money maker for its developers (Beyond Good and Evil, Ico etc). Fortunately however Take Two has revealed that Borderlands 2 has shipped over 8.5 million copies since its release in September 2012. The information was released via Take-Two Interactive earnings call.
In its first few months, Borderlands 2 shipped 5 million copies which means that another 3.5 million was shipped over more than a year. Borderlands 2 was the anticipated sequel to the well received Borderlands that came out in 2009. It seems the amount of gun nuts has increased as Borderlands is fast becoming a top franchise amongst gamers. It may be a long way from outselling the likes of Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto but it’s good to see that Borderlands is holding its own.
