It was just announced today that Borderlands 2 is, and I repeat, is in development. Just last year many people thought that Borderlands 2 was not going to happen, and some believed it was a sure-thing. Well as of today, Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox, has announced that BL2 is in development and should release between April 2012 and 2013. Hopefully, Borderlands 2 will make up for Duke Nukem: Forever, a game released by Gearbox this year with less than average ratings. If done well, Gearbox can get back their respect, especially with Brothers In Arms: Furious Four coming out later this year, which looks pleasing.
Borderlands will be the cover story for Game Informer this month, with a 12-page-spread. It has been described like so.“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.” Sounds amazing to me; especially after beating the original for the eighth time earlier this month.
How do you feel about Borderlands 2? Is it a first day, or a total pass?
