Rumors of a sequel to the well-received Borderlands have been swirling for a while now, and an anonymous source over at Gearbox Software have told Eurogamer that Borderlands 2 is already in the works, with an official announcement from publisher 2K Games to come soon.
Gearbox founder and CEO Randy Pitchford, however, insists on remaining mum on the matter. “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,” he said. “… But we’ve only announced what we’ve announced. If we haven’t announced it, it doesn’t exist.”
Considering the high success that Borderlands enjoyed, it’s only a matter of time before the sequel is confirmed and we’re all officially allowed to get excited for it.
