Borderlands 3 has dramatically increased the earnings of Epic Games

As the legal clash between Apple and Epic Games continues to take hold in the courts, leaked documents from the lawsuits have revealed that Borderlands 3 has managed to boost the profits of the American company of astronomical figures.

Epic Games uses a aggressive marketing strategy trying to grab exclusives at launch on PC, really expensive maneuvers that under the same admission of the employees at the moment are expected to lose. Yet, despite the losses (compensated by the excellent performance of Fortnite and the Unreal Engine), some exclusives talk about absurd earnings. the company in 2019 reported a huge loss of about 181 million dollars in 2019 alone. These figures include the expenses for exclusivity agreements. And among these agreements, Epic would have entered into an 80 million dollar contract with Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3 at its launch on the Epic Games Store would have generated a spike in revenues in September 2019: we are talking about 34.7 million dollars in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, equal to nearly half of Epic's total earnings in that period, or 72.6 million. Of these 34 million, 14 were totaled in just one day. We do not know the long-term figures of the title, but for this single quarter alone they are truly impressive.

In the meantime, we remind you that Gearbox is releasing a Borderlands spin-off, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands coming in 2022. The video game, including shootings, dragons and magic in a medieval fantasy setting, was announced last Summer Game Fest 2021 and is about to arrive on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC. You can find our preview here. Gearbox would also be working on a new main chapter in the saga, Borderlands 4. In total, the Borderlands saga has earned its developers about $ 1 billion by selling over 60 million copies worldwide.
