Default Borderlands - More Hints of a Sequel

December 5th, 2009, 22:20
For those hoping for another dose of the post-apocalyptic action rpg, some firmer indications of a sequel are revealed in a short newsbit over at Gamespot about the latest doings at Take 2 Interactive in which a spokesman mentions that Borderlands may become a long term franchise. They also refer back to a previous statement made by Gearbox's creative director on the game, Mikey Neumann, saying a sequel is "a no-brainer."
Here's the relevant snip:
In a conference call with analysts, chairman Strauss Zelnick praised the game, saying it shows "every sign of becoming an important, long-term franchise." Company president Ben Feder then announced that the 2K Games label has secured "long-term publishing rights to Borderlands sequels."
More information.

In these here times and with these here game companies, short on ideas and very fond of safer bets, the lack of a sequel to ANY best-selling game would be surprising.

What you say is true but to be fair, at least they took some risks and chances when they produced the original. Nothing groundbreaking but they did try a relatively unique art direction, humor and (im)maturity in a sparsely served genre (FPSRPG).

Borderlands isn't perfect but I'm glad it sold well, it show the industry that taking a few risks and trying something a little different can also lead to good sales. Maybe just maybe it'll lead to *one* less Call of Duty game in the next 5 years.
