There ain't no rest for the wicked, but we've certainly had to put up with a lot of official denials and stonewalling over the last few months. After a confidential source reputedly outed Borderlands 2 yesterday, Gearbox Software has officially confirmed that their MMOFPS sequel is indeed in development and slated for a 2012 release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
"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."
We don't know much more than that at present - but we do know that it'll be making an appearance at this year's Gamescom. We'll be there to bring you the latest.
