'Borderlands' sells over 2 million units
Gearbox Software's Borderlands has now sold over 2 million copies worldwide, according to publisher Take-Two Interactive.

Take-Two owns the long-term publishing rights to the first-person shooter, despite it originally being released by 2K Games. The company described the game as a "key franchise" in its current market strategy.

"Borderlands from 2K Games has now sold over 2 million units worldwide and has established itself as a key franchise for Take-Two, for which the company has long-term publishing rights," said the firm in its Q4 financial report.

The report also indicated that Borderlands is its bestselling title for the current quarter, ahead of NBA 2K10, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad Of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Regarding the studio's outlook for 2010, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder said: "We are excited about our product lineup for 2010, which includes BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption. We also have just announced Spec Ops: The Line, an intense military third-person shooter, for fiscal 2011."

Additional DLC for Borderlands is expected to be issued throughout 2010.
