Borderlands 2 Has NOT Been Confirmed

A quote from Gearbox president Randy Pitchford that read, “‘I’m sure Duke will have some demands of me and I’ve gotta work on Borderlands 2, right?’ (laughs),” was mistakenly assumed to be a confirmation the Borderlands 2 was in development. That is from an interview on here.

They have just confirmed that that was NOT a confirmation of Borderlands 2.

“Please pay close attention to the “laughs” bit at the end. This clearly implies Pitchford was making a joke. We thought we made that clear. Apparently, not clear enough.

To set the record straight, we contacted the man himself. This is what he had to say on the matter: “Yes, of course I was joking. It’s absurd to think otherwise and irresponsible for someone to represent otherwise,” he said.

“There has been a lot of people assuming that we are working on Borderlands 2. The reality is that we have made no announcements about future plans there.

“I was making a joke about the assumption that people have made that effort on Duke affects the future of Borderlands.

“It was a joke.”

Hopefully, this will quell any further rumors or false confirmations that Pitchford admitted to VG247 that Gearbox was, indeed, working on Borderlands 2.”

    I actually meant “It’s NOT very clear to me” as a joke.
