August 3, 2011 Written by Sebastian Moss

After a rumor appeared yesterday saying that Borderlands 2 was in development, 2K Games have now officially announced that the game is in development by Gearbox Software.

Few details have been revealed, with the announcement saying that “Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story.”


Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.

A new website,, has launched which is currently rather bare, but we’ll keep an eye out to see whether anything new is added. A full reveal is set for gamescom from August 17 – August 21, but the next issue of GameInformer will also have new details.

Borderlands 2 will release on PS3, 360 and PC during Take-Two’s fiscal year 2013 beginning on April 1st, 2012. As yesterday’s rumor asserted that it would release next year, a 2012 debut seems likely.
