It’s been almost two years and there hasn’t been an official Borderlands sequel announced yet. Sure, in September of 2010 developer Gearbox said that they are dedicated to all of their franchises despite acquiring the Duke Nukem brand. Even publisher 2K Games said that a sequel to the hilariously awesome Borderlands would be “a no-brainer”, but despite that we have very little.
Adding to this very little pile, we have news that the resume of artist James Mosingois artist has a header listing of “notable freelance” and lists “user interface concepts for Borderlands 2″ underneath. It’s a small tidbit that Superannuation was able to uncover but this is still small potatoes. Despite the small size, it hasn’t kept people from assuming that this leads to a sequel being announced at E3 this year.
E3 isn’t too far off and there’s always wild speculation around this time of year. Perhaps it’s a bit unfair to add to the pile of speculation but what we do know for a fact is that Gearbox has trademarked the name “Borderworlds”, but that’s all we’ve got to go on. The name gives the impression other planets will be involved and this could even be an MMO.
Of course, anything we say is purely speculative at this point. We will, however, ask nicely for any potential sequel to feature more of Scooter, because smokin’ Jesus titty cinnamon this game is going to be sweet!
