Borderlands 2 Has NOT Been Confirmed
A quote from Gearbox president Randy Pitchford that read, â€œâ€˜Iâ€™m sure Duke will have some demands of me and Iâ€™ve gotta work on Borderlands 2, right?â€™ (laughs),â€ was mistakenly assumed to be a confirmation the Borderlands 2 was in development. That is from an interview on vg247.com here.
They have just confirmed that that was NOT a confirmation of Borderlands 2.
“Please pay close attention to the â€œlaughsâ€ 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: â€œYes, of course I was joking. Itâ€™s absurd to think otherwise and irresponsible for someone to represent otherwise,â€ he said.
â€œThere 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.
â€œI was making a joke about the assumption that people have made that effort on Duke affects the future of Borderlands.
â€œIt was a joke.â€
Hopefully, this will quell any further rumors or false confirmations that Pitchford admitted to VG247 that Gearbox was, indeed, working on Borderlands 2.”
