Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Might Go Next-Gen Someday

Yes, it's true. This year's new Borderlands entry won't be coming to next-gen consoles.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is confirmed for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, but no PlayStation 4 or Xbox One...yet. During an E3 interview with Gamereactor, 2K Australia boss Tony Lawrence said if the fans want it, they might get it:

"All the players of Borderlands 2 are all playing on those [last-gen] consoles, that's the choice they've got. So we want to reward those guys and give them the Borderlands Pre-Sequel experience on that console. If fans say, 'Hey, we'd really like this on a next-gen console,' well, we'll think about that. But right now, we're concentrating on the consoles we know."

Gearbox has said in the past that "the vast majority of our fans" still have the old hardware, which is probably true. They don't want to force people to buy the new game machines when they're "in the middle of a trilogy." But they're not ruling out the possibility of bringing The Pre-Sequel to next-gen consoles one day. For the time being, it's no big deal, as the installed userbase for the PS3 and 360 is gigantic (depending on how many of the 165 million purchasers still own their PS3 or 360), while the PS4/Xbox One userbase is currently only around 15 million or so.

To learn more about the game in question, check out our recent preview. It's definitely a full-fledged experience, so don't worry about that.

id rather just wait for the next iteration of the game thats meant for next gen consoles. this prequel im sure is just something to place in between the next real borderlands game (think of gran turismo prologue)
