iGG: We’re all hungry for more Borderlands , but Randy Pitchford advises you don’t get your hopes up.
With BL2's success a sequel is a no-brainer at this point.
I know right, it has to happen <SPOILERS> Realy want to see the old vault hunters back in action this time round since the whole point they wern't in B2 was so they could get character development. I was annoyed though that they talked so much about killing Jack yet with all the missions they got your character to do it, I mean for example Bloodwing got killed and when it came to the mission Animal Rights instead of Mordecai taking revenge he got you to do it instead. It felt, especialy with what Angel said, that the old vault hunters wern't important anymore yet they were...maybe it was a trick to get you to follow her, who knows but to get your character to do EVERYTHING didn't seem like the old vault hunters. Obviously Roland won't be there but they will find a replacement, maybe the mechromancer would take his role. Mordecai would need a new skill since Bloodwing is gone, maybe a new bird or maybe a trained up Skag Brick can easily dual weild although he could still use his fists with added abilities Lilith...well she managed to get a lot stronger in Borderlands 2. Her phaseblast is more powerful, she can apparently liquify people as stated in her Echos and she can teleport herself and people. Theres a ton to go on here...maybe let us pick our skill with Lilith. I mean a new set of characters on Pandora would seem unlikely since another Siren appearing on the same planet as the last 4 would seem far fetched since theres only supposed to be six spread out across the universe. We've had Lilith, Steele, Angel and Maya come to Pandora so to have another one to arrive on Pandora out of ALL the places in the universe would seem unlikely so it makes sense if they went back to Lilith and keep the other two in secret or future games. I think the main reason I would like to see them back with new skills and abilities is because they've developed relationships with other characters in the game it would be nice to see your character getting some unique dialouge with differn't characters...for example Scooter when talking to Lilith would be all flirty but talking to Brick would have him a little intimidated. I mean I found it so funny that Liliths reason for being on Pandora was to find another Siren (possibley Steele) yet they had no interaction and in the sequel Mayas reason was to find more about her Siren background and find more Sirens didn't say anything to Lilith when you played her and got up to the mission when you first saw Lilith...not even a "Hey I'm a Siren too but lets talk after Jack is dead". So it would be nice to get back to those old characters and see there development pay off at last. I just found the old vault hunters more interesting then the new ones, hopefully this time the New vault hunters will get the same treatment as the old vault hunters did in this game.
Steel had never been confirmed a Siren, she just had tattoos on her similar to other sirens. Also Old characters suck compared to the new ones except Lilith.
I always thought the 6 siren thing was to over multiplayer. Since Angel, Lilith, Maya and another 3 to count for multiplayer. Perhaps I'm wrong or silly to think that, but thats how I've already read it.
There will be a sequel. The game has sold well enough to warrant one and the DLC will probably further that. But that doesn't mean they are gonna start work on it now or anytime soon. They have alot of work with the DLC and the next gen is gonna be starting soon so I would guess they won't start on a new game until at least they know for sure what next gen will be and what they can do with a new Borderlands. As I've said in a few other comments I would like to see a new cast of characters for a new game. Alot of people seem to want to play the original characters and I have to admit that I to have times when I'm playing the game and wishing I could do Phasewalk instead of Phaselock but they could just make playing the old characters as DLC or something. I think having them back as playable just for the sake of it would make the story a bit stale. They should further expand the world and it's cast by giving even more background on the original cast and shining even more light on BL2 cast. As far as the Siren thing I kinda agree having more would get a bit off seeing how there are only supposed to be six. That said the story for borderlands has never taken itself to seriously and with that in mind why not have another Siren. Or you know there is no rule that says that the classes need to be the same. Maybe they could go without a Siren again or relegate the class to DLC where you could play as Lilith or Maya.
Well I reached level 20 and can't get back to it too damn boring:/
yeah leave that for next gen or something.
They will, theyll drop the cell shaded look and go with how they planned it originally http://www.youtube.com/watc... I like it cell shaded, but think it would awesome if done "proper" (proper as in how you would expect a game to look)
The Borderlands 2 ending begs to differ.
Now that I think about it...Sega has been working on Shenmue 3 for quite a while now.
It's all about the money. They would be smart to take a break tho.
They are obviously being cautious with such a well received franchise. If you had a highly received and high selling ip you don't want to flood your own niche.
If they are making a third one I am hoping that will be the last one in the franchise. Trilogies are fine, but typically, anything beyond that is just milking it.
Wait a while and release it on next gen.
Cool i like gearbox but im not a fan of this series i hope they make something else the first game was painful as hell.
Chances are it will happen but until then they should focus on solid DLC for BL2 so that we aren't paying for stupid DLC like MOXXI
You mean like that boring claptrap one or the boring zombie one.
Good, No more borderland plz
Borderlands...so aweosome it effects people who don't even play it.
Come on guys! Borderlands 2 is just out! It'll take a little while before it appears as an option and it'll most likely be a possibility in the next gen cycle.
I'll be content with a Tiny Tina spin off.
"Gearbox Isn't planning Borderlands 3." Randy: "Now we got that out of the way, lets get started on Borderlands 3."
Haha, I generally laughed out loud at this. It's like he was just saying that to stomp out internet chatter while they secretly work on Borderlands 3.
Just please.. no more of that Shift code stuff (when they do plan on making BL3).
I wouldn't think so, oh well...
I don't see how that's possible with the way the story ends in Borderlands 2, but who knows...
Yes / No. Many games end on these notes to "leave the door open" incase they make another title. It would be a lot easier to use that lead in, then say killing all the vault hunters, flat out stating this that or the other is fact or something of the sort. Finally, don't forget that the DLC is a big mystery. Each DLC pack could follow one of the hunters or someone we already know dealing with that stuff. While extremely unlikely, these are all possible reasons.
uh huh, yeah right......isnt this EXACTLY what was said after Borderlands 1? , geez. How many "Numb-Skullz" will fall for the same trick again? quite a few im sure.
I hope they make something different never got into borderlands.
Good, leave it alone for a while. I love BL, but not every series needs to go on indefinitely or go for the trilogy. I think Borderlands will need some time away before making a return with some nice, big changes to the formula. Plus, the game's only been out a week, they're all probably still getting some R&R and sowing the seeds of their labour. They're a pretty creative outfit at Gearbox, I hope they get to do something quite different next.
I knew this was misquoted without opening the link based off Randy's tweets I have seen. He just simply said they are focusing on DLC first like Aliens and stuff VS starting on a BL3.
Give it a good 4-5 years before the next game. The last thing I want is another COD or Assassins Creed that releases a new game every 6 months.
This story title needs to be renamed. It's misleading. No where does Randy Pitchford say they have no plans to make Borderlands 3, only that they are not currently working on Borderlands 3, which makes sense. They JUST released Borderlands 2!
Ah hell. As soon as gearbox get next gen developer kits theyll be all over it like stink on shit and they know it. Hasnt borderlands 2 already sold around 4.5 million?
