    Upon its release two weeks ago, Borderlands 3 got rave reviews, with different publications praising the game’s story, quests, and gameplay. In our review, we also heaped praise upon the game, calling it “[a] welcoming conclusion that wraps up a 10-year old story and opens up the property for possible story branches.”

    Aside from critical acclaim though, Borderlands 3 also quickly became a massive commercial success. In just five day since its release last September 13, Borderlands 3 sold more than 5 million units — that’s 50 percent more than the sales of its predecessor in the same time frame. With its incredible five-day record, Borderlands 3 also the fastest-selling title in game publisher 2K’s history.

    With its current sales record, the Borderlands franchise has now generated more than USD 1 Billion in net bookings, becoming the second franchise in 2K history to achieve this milestone. Borderlands 3 also had the highest pre-order sales figures for any 2K title, not to mention that it also broke the pre-order sales record at the Epic Games Store.

    Borderlands 3’s incredibly successful launch is a result of the hard work and longstanding partnership between Gearbox Software and 2K,” said David Ismailer, President of 2K. “We are immensely grateful to everyone who played a role in making the Borderlands series the global, pop culture phenomenon that it is today, including hundreds of developers at Gearbox and many who have made this their life’s work.”
