Gearbox Not Done With Borderlands
For all you Borderlands fans out there, you'll be happy to know that Gearbox says there's much more to be done.
In speaking with NowGamer, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford says that despite all the DLC additions to the popular shooter-with-RPG-elements, the team could always make more, and the hint of a sequel can be noted in his words. Thus far, Gearbox and publisher 2K Games have provided players with four DLC expansions but that's hardly the last you'll see of Borderlands. Gearbox just loves their game, and they'll stick with it:
"We launched our fourth DLC not too long ago and when we finished the third DLC I [went] and asked the folks a few questions and they said 'We think this is going to be our last DLC.' Turns out it wasn't [laughs].
I asked the same question after the fourth and the answer was 'Well, it's the last one we've planned.' We were really excited to do more and the customers were really excited about more: We love what we've done with Borderlands and we know that there's more that we need to do and that the customers are looking forward to. We know we're not done with the franchise and we'll be letting you know what we're doing before too long."
That last bit could be an indication of a sequel, so cross your fingers. But don't forget that Gearbox also has to pump out Duke Nukem Forever this year, which, despite the 13-year wait, does look promising. ...I propose we toss out any and all expectations built up over that time period, and just hope for a polished, entertaining game. As for Borderlands, the game sold very well, so there's certainly an audience for more from what should become a new series.
