Borderlands 2: Yes, It’s Official Now
Just hours after a tweet from Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford railed “…Shoddy journalism is not an announcement” in response to an early leak by Eurogamer, Gearbox (developer of the wildly popular Borderlands) has officially announced Borderlands 2 is in fact in development.
2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that the sequel to the extravasplosive breakout hit, Borderlands™, is currently in development at world-renowned developer Gearbox Software. Coming to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC during Take-Two’s fiscal year 2013 beginning on April 1, 2012, Borderlands 2 is the epic sequel to the ultimate four-player Role-Playing Shooter loot fest. Combining invention and evolution, Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.
Game Informer will feature Borderlands 2 on the cover of their September issue. The issue will contain a 12 page spread highlighting the virtues of this sequel including screenshots and gameplay details. If you aren’t already – I highly recommend becoming a subscriber to Game Informer
