Borderlands 2 Has Sold Over 5 Million Copies

Over 5 million copies of Borderlands 2 have been sold, according to Take-Two’s second quarter fiscal 2013 report.

The report cited Borderlands 2 as “one of the most successful releases in 2K’s history,” with an average score of 90 on Metacritic and over 5 million units sold to date, including strong digital sales. Borderlands 2 will be seeing four downloadable add-on content campaigns, available individually or combined through purchase of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.

But Borderlands 2 wasn’t the only success story in the report, which also discussed XCOM: Enemy Unknown, its strong digital sales, and its near 90 average review score on Metacritic, calling the title “critical and commercial success.” XCOM: Enemy Unknown will receive two downloadable add-on content packages this year, with additional content planned for 2013.

Amazing what a developer can accomplish when they actually give two sh1ts about their product. Especially in the “world so dominated by piracy”.

An interesting and original IP, creative and varied gameplay, stand-out art style, likeable characters and DLC that actually feels like worthwhile expansions to the story while also being standalone content. That’s why Borderlands has succeeded. Sadly, it will pale in comparison to sales of Black Ops 2, aka Call of Duty 2 – reskin #8. Expect Jim Sterling to ignore the lack of advancement in the engine once again while criticising other franchises for doing much more to enhance their products (see: MW3 9/10, Mario Kart Wii 5/10 for being ‘unoriginal’).
