Take-Two reveals new shipment tallies for the company's most popular games.

Borderlands 2, the best-selling game in the history of 2K Games, has now shipped 9 million units since its release in September 2012. That was just one of the new shipment figures publisher Take-Two Interactive announced during yesterday's post-earnings financial call.

Below is a roundup of the new shipment figures Take-Two disclosed for its games. Of note, Take-Two didn't say how many copies were actually sold through to consumers.

Any surprises?

Borderlands 2 is one of my favorite games ever. On the other hand, I "wish" I enjoyed GTAV. I hear about other people having fun, but then I play and get bored.

33 million . look at the drop from the top selling product and second place. 24 million sales difference.


Thats pretty huge.


Borderlands is a great game, NBA 2K is a great game. all of these games are great on this list. I think 2K and Ubisoft are the best publishers right now. 2K edges it for me, because its DRM isnt as horrid as Ubisoft's.

I know NPD numbers don't include digital, but do company numbers?  Cuz I'm sure that a whole mess of digital copies of these games got bought.

It's good to know that Borderlands 2 sold pretty well, even though I have heard a lot of hate toward that game.
One of my favorite games.

I enjoyed Borderlands 2, so it is nice to see it doing well.  I'm halfway through playing Bioshock Infinite, and so far I don't think it is as good as the first game in the series, although it does have its moments.

How in the he!! has Bioshock Infinite sold 6mil units???? Visually beautiful, but the linear gameplay is worse than most JRPG's....and the pointing at every single object in the game looking for a few bucks even takes from the stunning visuals.

That figure will hit 50 million plus copies once GTA V hits PC/PS4 & Xbox one.

@olddadgamer - I would assume company stats are total sales including physical and digital, unless stated otherwise.

@ezeuzIf there is any  hate its either because they didn't play the game or didn't play it with friends. Borderlands 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. Also if they re complaining they either don't understand the amount of comedy in it due to culture differences or they were not paying attention to it when playing. The comedy makes they game. Its like GTA in that regard. for both games, without the comedy neither would be as good as they are.

@Gallowhand  i know what you mean...i just finished another playthrough of the first Bioshock and while Infinite is a good game, just doesn't have that vibe

Shrug, it's an FPS with a cool story, nice visuals, and lite rpg elements. There's very few non - linear FPSs that I can think of.

@steaminpotatoes Yes, I thought of that as well, since I'm a person who enjoys seeing a hidden meaning in such random events. It can't be just a coincidence that Civ V has sold 5 million, can it? I choose to believe that it's not a coincidence, lol.
