No, Borderlands 2 hasn't been confirmed yet. The surprise success of Gearbox Software's first-person action RPG -- based on word-of-mouth, anyway, as official numbers aren't in until later this month -- prompted someone to finally ask the developer, "hey, what about Borderlands 2?" You can guess what an excited creative director might have said in response to VG247's question.
"Yes, I can probably confirm that there’s a chance of a Borderlands 2," laughed Mike Neumann. "I mean, with anything, especially a new IP, if people want more and you can make more, and everybody can make money and do good business there, it obviously makes really good sense to do that. Obviously nothing so far is planned. We’re working on DLC. We haven’t really had any talks about a sequel, other than water cooler talk like, 'Wouldn’t this be cool' kind of stuff."
None of that's surprising. Borderlands appears to be taking off better than most expected, prompting Gearbox's design team to start pondering the "what ifs?" about the future.
"If everything makes sense, Borderlands 2 seems like a no-brainer to me," said Neumann.
