2K Games has revealed that Gearbox Software's Borderlands 2 has become their most pre-ordered title thus far.
Take-Two UK sales director Dave Gould said the publisher is "exceptionally happy with the level of support gamers have shown to Borderlands 2" and that the pre-order records reflects "what a beloved franchise this is.”
"Orders are increasing week-on-week at a rate we've never before experienced for a 2K title. They are exceeding our already high expectations, there's huge momentum behind the game."
2K's parent company Take-Two had previously revealed that pre-sales of Borderlands 2 had made the sequel become the third highest pre-ordered game in the company's history. The sequel's pre-order figures trials only behind GTA: San Andreas and GTA 4 in the records list.
