It’s no secret by now that Gearbox’s Borderlands 2 has been very successful for the studio. Well, as it turns out, that number is still getting bigger.
In a podcast with Microsoft man Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford revealed that Borderlands 2 sales are now “well over 12 million units;” a fact Pitchford found out through a 2K Games earnings call. However, given that parent company 2K is a publicly traded company, specific numbers couldn’t be divulged.
If 2K decides to lump in the sales of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection with Borderlands 2, since the collection houses the sequel, then we can most likely see a significant jump in its overall sales volume very soon.
