Borderlands 3 has sold over 5 million copies in just five days, selling twice as many copies as its predecessor – Borderlands 2.

Today, 2k announced the astounding achievement of the first-person shooter game, Borderlands 3 managed to secure. With 5 million copies purchased on PC, Play Station 4, and Xbox One, 70% of the sales were digital. The game managed to double Borderlands 2’s purchases, making it the fastest-selling 2k title in the company’s history.

In addition, Borderlands 3 is now the highest-selling title on the PC platform in 5 days.

The Borderlands franchise generated more than $1 billion in Net Bookings becoming the second franchise in 2K history to achieve this milestone.

Borderlands 3 managed to claim the top position for Most-Watched Game on its launch day on the popular streaming platform, Twitch and has maintained its position as a Top Five Most-Watched Game since launch.

The game has also generated more than 14 million hours of content on Twitch, which is more than half the viewership that Borderland 2 has achieved in 7 years.

“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.” Said David Ismailer, President of 2K.
