An Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of the original Borderlands game is something Gearbox Software is interested in, according to studio boss Randy Pitchford.


Speaking in the latest Major Nelson podcast, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said should Borderlands: The Handsome Collection prove successful, 2K Games might consider a current-gen version.

“The fact that The Handsome Collection has Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2 means there’s still that original game that isn’t on next-gen yet,” said Pitchford via Gamespot. “If this is successful, I’m sure the folks at 2K, the people that care about publishing and figure out how to get content in customers’ hands if customers want it, will be noticing that.

“And I’d love to have those conversations about how to bring Borderlands 1 to next-gen. “If The Handsome Collection is successful enough, there might be a way to justify that, and I really hope that’s the case.

“I’d love to have my entire Borderlands collection on next-gen.”

The only problem with a port to current-gen, according to Pitchford, is the original game runs on a different game; however, those technical obstacles could be overcome.

Gearbox is currently working on its new multiplayer game Battleborn and Borderlands 3. The studio also recently said that it would love to make a new Brothers in Arms game.
