Borderlands 2 Reportedly In Development


Posted August 2, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson


This will not come as a shock to anyone who pays attention to how the game industry and/or Capitalism work, but Eurogamer is reporting that Borderlands 2 is in development at Gearbox. Shocking, I know, that a game company would follow up a successful video game with a sequel, but it is reportedly happening.

The news comes by way of Eurogamer, whose unnamed source says an announcement is coming soon.

Gearbox head Randy Pitchford has been slightly cagey when asked about Borderlands 2 in the past, hinting that the game was coming. Specifically, Pitchford has said:

"We've only announced what we've announced. If we haven't announced it, it doesn't exist." and "Plans and efforts towards the future always exist with a forward looking studio like Gearbox, of course, but brainstorming and blue sky research and development should never be allowed to be construed into a customer promise. A customer promise should not be made until that promise becomes sufficiently clear and ready and the commitment is there to deliver upon the promise."

During another interview, Pitchford said:

"I'm sure Duke [Nukem] will have some demands of me and I've gotta work on Borderlands 2, right?"

If anyone out there would like to make a bet about Borderlands 2, I'm ready to stake my entire life savings (over 38 dollars!) on the speculation that Borderlands 2 exists, is coming from Gearbox, and will be officially announced at some point in the next 12 months.

Any takers? Anyone? Hello? Is this thing on? Beuller? Hello...?
