Borderlands Surpasses 2 Million Units Sold

BOOM widget 363054With developer Gearbox having previously declared Borderlands "the fastest-selling original property video game launch of 2009," publisher Take-Two Interactive has now brought actual sales numbers to light.

Discussing its "recent product highlights" today, Take-Two specified that the shooter-RPG has "sold over 2 million units worldwide" since its October release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, adding that it "has established itself as a key franchise for Take-Two."

The publisher added that its holds the "long-term publishing rights" to the Gearbox-developed franchise. Back when Gearbox and Take-Two announced Borderlands in 2007, the duo claimed that it was "the first title in an all-new sci-fi action franchise."

And while there's been no word as to when the seemingly inevitable sequel will hit, Borderlands has already seen one downloadable expansion, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, with at least one other, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, due soon.
