Borderlands 2 Officially Announced By Gearbox Software

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.”

Continuing:

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

A new website, borderlands2.com, 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.
