Borderlands 2 - Interview @ Digital Trends

by Couchpotato, 2013-09-16 00:08:33

Digital Trends interviews Randy Pitchford who wants you excited for the new Borderlands 2 DLC, just not too excited.

Randy Pitchford wants to keep your expectations in check. The Gearbox Software president, CEO, and founder is excited to bring more Borderlands 2 content to fans that, nearly a full year later, still seem ravenous for more, but he wants everyone to be clear on one thing: this is not a second “season” of content.

“We’re doing more beyond season one,” he says, laughing nervously. We’re sitting in Pitchford’s Plano, Texas office, a modest space packed with vintage consoles sitting on pedestals, various awards, and other bits of ephemera. There’s even an Oculus Rift dev kit case stashed in a corner, a brand new toy to play with. It’s an inviting office for a serious gamer to step into and a generally relaxed space overall, but Pitchford seems tense when the subject of a “second content season” comes up. Why wouldn’t he be? Borderlands 2 has a very large and very vocal fanbase. When information is miscommunicated – it happens, that’s life – the scale of the community gathered around the game makes damage control very tricky. Just try Googling “Borderlands 3 release plans” for an object lesson in conflicting reports.
