Borderlands 2 has become 2K's highest-selling game of all time with more than 8.5 million units shipped to date, Take-Two Interactive announced during its third-quarter financials last night.

"Borderlands 2 is a prime example of how we are able to generate substantial revenue and profits from add-on content over an extended period," explained Strauss Zelnick, chairman and chief executive officer during the publisher's earnings call.

"In the 16 months following the title launch, we released nine substantial downloadable offerings, dozens of smaller character customizations, and we have plans to release more downloadable content in the coming months. This is an addition of package good, add-on packs, and most recently, a Game of the Year Edition."

He added: "The popularity of add-on content for Borderlands 2 is an important contributor to the title's becoming the highest selling release in history of 2K with more than 8.5 million units sold-in to date."

Neither 2K or developer Gearbox have yet confirmed that Borderlands 3 is in development.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Given the huge player base involved in Borderlands 2, a third title must be in the publisher's plans for the Xbox One and PS4.

i'd be happy with modular weapon design rather than fully randomly generated. Pretty much your entire ability to destroy boiled down to your gun with your powers as backup.

I would be surprised if we didn't see this or something very similar to this.

Very New Vegas-esq! (But an excellent idea none the less).

If they can make a game as good as Borderlands 2 then I'll be happy. I played it solo or with strangers and it was still incredibly fun!

I'd really like to see the arms manufacturers take centre stage in the next game - as seen somewhat in the Torgue DLC. Give specific branching storylines that make the player side/specialise with one company in particular (at a penalty for others, to a varying degree), provide skills related to guns from them, specialised payment tokens/vending machines... as they fight for sales prominence on Pandora...

I really think that could work well.
