Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was surprisingly announced to only be coming to PC and last-gen consoles, a decision which some of the series’ fans were surprised to hear. Developer 2K Australia has now said that the door isn’t completely closed on a current-gen release.
Speaking in a interview with GameReactorTV, developer Tony Lawrence said, “I guess we’re full on developing the PS3, 360 and PC game, and we believe in that too.
“All the Borderlands 2 players are playing on those consoles. That’s the choice they’ve got. So we want to reward those guys. If fans say ‘hey, we’d really like this on a next-gen console’, well, we’ll think about that, but right now we’re concentrating on the consoles we know.”
Borderlands franchise director Matt Armstrong corroborated Lawrence comments and added, “The vast majority of our fans still have their Xbox 360 [or PS3]. The other thing is it’s the middle game in a trilogy. Moving it on to next-gen and requiring people to buy new hardware to play the middle entry in a trilogy feels a little disingenuous and we sort of want to respect that.
“As we said, one day maybe, I don’t know. We’ll think about that, see how people react to the game, how much fun they have and whether or not everyone moves on to the next gen fully next year. For now we’re pretty happy with our choice and I think people are going to be to.”
