Borderlands sequel all but official

It appears we’ve reached a point where no one should be having any doubts whatsoever that we’ll be seeing more Borderlands beyond DLC for the first game.

Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick said last week that it’s an “important, longterm franchise” for the company and, at the UBS 37th Annual Global Media and Communications Conference, has followed that up with more similar talk, saying that Borderlands “looks like another terrific franchise” for the company and reminds that T2 has “longterm publishing rights to sequels to Borderlands.”

Zelnick hasn’t been the only one talking about sequels to the sci-fi flavored post-apocalyptic loot fest though. Mike Neumann, the Creative Director at developer Gearbox, last month said that “if everything makes sense, Borderlands 2 seems like a no-brainer to me.”
