Borderlands 2 Is 2K’s Best Selling Game To Date

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.
