Next new Borderlands game won't be coming to Xbox 360
The newly announced Borderlands game, which Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford called "the big one," is being developed "specifically for next-gen consoles."
Thats according to Take-Two president Karl Slatoff, who dropped the quote today during an earnings call following the companys financial report this afternoon.
Slatoffs comments make it pretty clear that the next Borderlands game is coming to Xbox One andPlayStation 4, but not Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
It isnt altogether surprising that this new game would skip last-generation consoles. Thats because sales of the Xbox One and PS4 have been strong, and also because those consoles are technically superior to their previous generation counterparts, allowing for new gameplay features and innovation.
