In the first five days of release, the new Gearbox studio game sold over 5 million copies. This is 50 percent more than Borderlands 2 sold over the same period.

Moreover, the new game became the fastest-selling title for the the label.

70% of the copies were sold digitally. The publisher highlights sales on PC, where the game is distributed through 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.
