Borderlands 2 fans shouldn’t expect future DLC to be a second “season” of content, says Pitchford

Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford has said not to expect future content for Borderlands 2 to be on par with Season One DLC. Granted, it’s value will “exceed” its cost, he says, but at the same time players shouldn’t have high expectations for the content.

Speaking in an interview with Digital Trends, Pitchford said the team at Gearbox is still building new “new things” for Borderlands 2, but it’s also busy developing new projects.

“We are still spending energy building new things for Borderlands 2, but we are also building new things for the future,” he said. “We’re building some new things for next-generation consoles, we’re creating some new IP, we’ve got a lot of attention diverting to other efforts beyond Borderlands 2.

“It’s not fair for me to say there’s another season. There’s not going to be as much new stuff, but the good news is, there’s more stuff and it’s awesome and the value of it will exceed the cost. But I don’t want anyone, later, saying: ‘Why wasn’t there a whole season like there was before?’

“There might turn out to be, but I can only see what we have in motion right now.”

The latest DLC for Borderlands 2 is the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2.

T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest is due this fall.

    I just hope that the Vita version will be a “goty” goty, including all the DLC released for the game, but probably not…

    The season pass DLC for BL2 was all empty and hollow feeling compared to BL1 because it was outsourced to a different team, good to know any future dlc will be worse? atleast they are trying to be more honest about the lack of content?

    DLC for Borderlands 2 was fantastic, and you got your moneys worth when you bought the season pass.

    The DLC content as a whole is way better than in Borderlands 1, even diehard fans agree to that. Sure, some of them were less great, but Tiny Tina’s for example was awesome.

    Compare this to the shit you get from the season passes of CoD and Saints Row for example, and it’s easy to see you can’t really complain about what you’re getting here.
