Take-Two Interactive just announced that Borderlands 3 broke multiple records and reached five millions fans in its first five days.
In response, Gearbox released the statement below earlier this morning.
“The response from the Borderlands 3 fans and community has been overwhelming,” said Randy Pitchford, founder of The Gearbox Entertainment Company and Executive Producer of Borderlands 3. “The mission of Gearbox is to entertain the world and with the record-breaking success of Borderlands 3, we’re excited to take one more giant leap down that road. On behalf of the incredible development team and everyone who has had a hand in making this achievement possible, I extend our warmest thanks to our fans.”
At Gearbox Software, the Borderlands development team is continuing to grow to support the game with new platforms, updates and patches, new features, a bevy of free content, new events, other yet-to-be-announced surprises, and the biggest line-up of campaign DLC and character upgrades in the franchise’s history. In spite of the nigh universal problems people have had with the writing, the game seems to have sold well on its other merits, which is good to see.
At any rate, more news on said updates is bound to come out of Borderlands 3 in the near future, and we’ll be around to tell you about it. Happy vault hunting!
