A freelance artist and animator who listed Borderlands 2 on his online CV may have unwittingly outed Gearbox’s long-rumoured but yet-to-be-announced sequel.
James Mosingois’s CV lists a new Borderlands game as a title he’s worked on – as spotted by Twitter user superannuation.
Quickly, and unexplainedly, his tweet was removed. Could we be heading for an E3 reveal?
Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford poo-pooed claims that a Borderlands 2 was in the making recently, but the rumours have been strong for a long time.
The developer probably didn’t help matters on the secrecy front when it trademarked the name “Borderworlds”, suggesting that this is what the co-op shooter follow-up will be called.
I didn’t play much of the original Borderlands (in fact, I didn’t play any beyond a preview build in 2009), but I know a lot of people who did, and plenty of people who loved it. And one thing is for sure: far more games should have quite so many guns. KABOOM!
