2K Games has confirmed that it is working on a sequel to Gearbox Software’s popular shooter Borderlands.
Borderlands 2 will be released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC during Take-Two’s next financial year, which begins on April 1st, 2012.
A first look at the game will be available to members of the press and consumers at both Gamescom 2011 and the Penny Arcade Expo.
So far, all 2K is willing to say on the game’s features so far is this: "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."
The existence of Borderlands 2 was leaked yesterday.
