Do you all remember back in October when Michael Pachter gazed in to his crystal ball and confidently declared that Borderlands was being â€œsent to dieâ€ at retail?
Turns out he’s been looking at the wrong balls, as we now have a solid figure to attach to the game – which we’ve known has been doing decent business.
Some new financials from Take 2 reveal that the game has sold in excess of 2 million copies to date, with Take 2 going so far as to say that Borderlands has â€œestablished itself as a key franchise for Take-Twoâ€
So yes, you’ll be getting more Borderlands – which is fine by me. Borderlands is one of my favourite games of the year – and if it wasn’t so buggy and had a more cohesive narrative would’ve cement itself as one of my favourites of all time. The FPS bit of the Hybrid is the dog’s bollocks – now the RPG side just needs a little more flesh.
