Confirming recent rumours
, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have now announced Borderlands 2, a sequel to their successful 2009 shooter RPG hybrid.
Strangely, the announcement comes with no media, not even a teaser trailer. All we have for you today is the unexciting logo
. However, 2K have promised fans a "first glimpse" at the game at both the German GamesCom event as well as PAX Prime 2011 in the U.S. both later this month.
Borderlands 2 is the epic sequel to the ultimate four-player Role-Playing Shooter loot fest. Combining invention and evolution, Borderlands 2 features all-new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.
The press release
doesn't say much else. Only that the game will once again be on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and is earmarked for release during Take-two's 2013 fiscal year which commences on April 1 2012.
