Borderlands 2 Coming in 2012, Maybe
A sequel to Borderlands is reportedly in the works and will be out next year. Thats according to Eurogamer, which claims its been told by a source close to Gearbox Software that the developer is currently at work on Borderlands 2 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Gearbox hasnt been shy in expressing how pleased it is with the first game, and this isnt the first indication that another Borderlands is on the way -- a resume showed a listing for Borderlands 2 earlier this year.
"I can tell you that myself and everyone at Gearbox LOVES Borderlands and we have been absolutely thrilled at the reception its gotten from our customers and the fact that its sold over four million units now," Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford told Eurogamer in April. "So you can see that we supported the game like mad with lots of great DLC and you can imagine that were going to want to do a lot of things with Borderlands in the future."
Since shipping the cel-shaded shooter in October 2009, Gearbox has released Duke Nukem Forever and several DLC packs for Borderlands. Its currently at work on Brothers in Arm: Furious 4, which it announced at E3, and Aliens: Colonial Marines, which should finally be out next spring.
Pitchford previously declined to confirm that a new Borderlands was officially in development, and things are unlikely to be any different now. Well have to wait for an official reveal before knowing what changes Borderlands 2 will bring, though I know Im personally hoping for a less shoddy PC version than what we got with the first game.
