RUMOR MILL: Borderlands 2 scheduled for 2012 Release
Remember Borderlands, the big sleeper hit of 2009? Well it might have a follow-up on the way. According to the source that spoke with EuroGamer the next installment in the FPS RPG will be released sometime next year. Since the Gearbox team is done with Duke Nukem but also announced Aliens: Colonial Marines and a New Brothers in Arms game titled “Furious Four”, You wonder if the developer has enough man power to divert to another game. In a statment released by Gearbox President Randy Pitchford, he says he would love to work on more Borderlands content, but nothing has been announced meaning it doesn’t exist. Here is the full statement:
“I can tell you that myself and everyone at Gearbox LOVES Borderlands and we have been absolutely thrilled at the reception it’s gotten from our customers and the fact that it’s sold over four million units now. So you can see that we supported the game like mad with lots of great DLC and you can imagine that we’re going to want to do a lot of things with Borderlands in the future. But we’ve only announced what we’ve announced. If we haven’t announced it, it doesn’t exist.”
I would be very excited for another Borderlands game, the first one was a great co-op experience and bring that type of experience back and with better weapons, areas etc. would be great. I hope this rumor comes true and that we’ll be seeing Borderlands 2 hit stores in 2012.
