Update: 2K Games has now officially announced Borderlands 2, due for release next fiscal year (beginning April 1st 2012), the game will feature ‘new characters, skills, environments, weapons and equipment.’
Original story below.
Eurogamer has been told by ‘a source close to the game’ that Gearbox is currently developing Borderlands 2, and that it will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime next year. They’re also reporting that an official announcement will be made soon by publisher 2K Games.
This comes as no surprise really given the fantastic reception the first game received, but it’s still nice to get something resembling confirmation. Here’s hoping that it’s a million miles away from the travesty that was their last game- Duke Nukem Forever, to which our own Mike Murphy gave the generous score of 4/10.
