TAKE-TWO: Borderlands 2 ships 5m, XCOM a hit

Take-Two Interactive has revealed its second quarter financials, with standouts Borderlands 2 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown driving the publisher past its predicated outlook for the period.

Gearbox’s Borderlands 2 has shipped 5m copies to date, while XCOM is, according to the firm, ‘proving to be a critical and commercial success.’

The report adds both titles have seen ‘strong’ digital sales as well.

"Take-Two’s second quarter revenue and earnings exceeded our outlook, driven by the breakout success of 2K’s Borderlands 2 and robust demand for our catalog and digitally delivered offerings," stated Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

"Moreover, with Grand Theft Auto 5 slated for spring 2013, we are poised to generate substantial revenue and earnings growth in fiscal year 2014."
