Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel goes to the moon

, | News

Borderlands 2 is getting a prequel installment on last gen consoles and PCs. Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel features four new playable characters shooting and looting on Pandora’s moon. Villainous Handsome Jack’s rise to power as the primary baddie of Borderlands 2 will figure prominently in the plot. Randy Pitchford of Gearbox confirmed that there are no plans for a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game. He explained the reasoning for keeping the Pre-Sequel strictly lest-gen to Eurogamer.

“Currently there is – between PS3 and Xbox 360 – over 150m installed units worldwide – probably 170m is more realistic. There are fewer Xbox Ones and PS4s than we sold copies of Borderlands 2.”

Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel is slated to launch later this year on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PCs.
