October 22, 2019 Borderlands 3 is hitting sales numbers that most triple-A games do not.
Early reports on Borderlands 3 sales have been strong, as the September release set records for both the series and publisher 2K. But while the company said the game saw “incredibly strong” sales on PC, we didn’t have much context for how well it did on the platform – and since Borderlands 3 is the biggest Epic Store exclusive yet, the industry and fans alike were especially curious to see how the title fared.
Borderlands 3 was the second highest-grossing PC game of September, as ranked by SuperData’s worldwide earnings chart. That puts it just above Riot’s venerable MOBA, League of Legends, and just behind South Korean free-to-play beat-’em’-up, Dungeon Fighter Online. Borderlands 3 sold 3.3 digital units throughout September, though we don’t know how that breaks down across consoles and PC.
It is extremely rare to see a traditional, triple-A release release hit this PC earnings chart at all – the list is typically dominated by free-to-play titles with astronomical worldwide popularity. This is a bit of a down month for digital spending, though the effects were bigger on console than PC. Either way, Borderlands 3 is the only traditional, $60 PC release to rank as high as number two this year – if Epic Store critics slowed down the game’s momentum, it wasn’t by much.
