Randy Pitchford, CEP of Gearbox Software has confirmed that a sequel to Borderlands is in the works.
Pitchford was still dismissing claims that Borderlands 2 was in the works as late as last month, asking, “What’s Borderlands 2?” in response to rumors sweeping the internet. Then in a conversation with VG247, he said, “I’m sure Duke will have some demands of me, and I’ve gotta work on Borderlands 2, right?”
I say it better be! Borderlands sold like three million copies, and everyone I know who has played it loved it. I loved running around with my friend in co-op (dare I pray for a four player co-op this time around?!), and online was pretty fun, though a bit laggy sometimes.
Overall, this was the first first-person shooter that I actually enjoyed and paved the way for me to try out Mass Effect. I can’t wait to hear what they are doing with the game!
