Borderlands 3 is a smash hit. With 5 million units sold in 5 days, the game is the fastest-selling borderlands and 2K title ever. Which is 50% more sales than Borderlands 2 did back in the day. Therefore the franchise now has a net booking of over $1 billion.
Borderlands 3 claimed the top position on Twitch for Most-Watched Game on its launch day and has maintained its position as a Top Five Most-Watched Game since launch. In addition, Borderlands 3 has already generated more than 14 million hours of content viewed on Twitch – more than half the viewership that Borderlands 2 generated in its seven-year lifetime.
“Borderlands 3’s incredibly successful launch is a result of the hard work and longstanding partnership between Gearbox Software and 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. We also want to thank the Borderlands community. Mayhem does not happen by itself, and their passion for the series is what drives us to make each game an amazing experience.” David Ismailer, President of 2K
