Last year saw the release of a number of sequels in the video game world. From "Halo 4" to "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2", there were plenty of games to pick up regardless of what franchise you liked. "Borderlands 2" dropped before the bigger names could come out, and had a head start to get some sales in, and it's done quite well for itself.
During yesterday's financial call, CEO of Take-Two Strauss Zelnick announced that "Borderlands 2" is 2K Games' biggest money maker in digital sales across the fiscal year. With 6 million united shipped, it's on the way to breaking 2K Games' sales records.
"Building on its extraordinary launch in September, Borderlands 2 continues to expand its audience and remains on pace to become the highest-selling title in 2K's history. It has also been the largest contributor to our digitally delivered revenue this year, driven both by strong sales of full game downloads, and high attach rates for the title's add-on content, especially the Borderlands 2 Season Pass," said Zelnick
Originally "Borderlands 2" had shipped around 5 million by October 2012, a month after it's release, and even now continues to push more units out. Of course, shipping and sales are different numbers, but you don't ship without the demand.
