The lights are on
Now that Gearbox’s Battleborn is out in the open, it’s a bit easier to understand why the studio is teaming up with 2K Australia on this fall’s Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. In the first episode of a “making of” series, we get a look at how the two developers are working together, despite being on opposite sides of the world.
Co-development isn’t a new phenomenon, but there are certainly challenges when the partners are in Texas and Australia. Still, everything we’ve heard from both Gearbox and 2K Australia (formerly Irrational Australia) evidences a great working relationship.
You can check out the video to learn more about how Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel came about and how the two studios are working together. You can also read up on our earlier preview that includes a conversation with Gearbox president Randy Pitchford and 2K Australia general manager Tony Lawrence.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be out on October 14 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. As for new-gen consoles? We wouldn’t rule them out entirely.
