Gearbox confirms more DLC for Borderlands 2

Randy Pitchford says team wants to make more content for Borderlands 2; studio also working on original IP for next-generation consoles.

by

Gearbox Software president and CEO Randy Pitchford has confirmed that the most recent piece of downloadable content for Borderlands 2, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, will not be the last created for the game.

Joining the Nerdist podcast (as reported by MP1st), Pitchford revealed, "We did a season pass for Borderlands 2, and the season pass was like, 'hey, if you buy the season pass, we would be doing four campaign add-ons and you can buy all four of them for the price of three, if you buy upfront'. So everyone was under the expectations that those would be the four DLCs and that’s it.

"We are going to do more; we are going to do some other things. I don’t have details exactly of it yet, 'cause we're not ready to announce what the other things are, but when the next campaign DLC comes, Assault On Dragon Keep [won’t be] the end of it," he said. "We've got more stuff in the hopper that we’re planning and getting pretty excited about. So if you’re a Borderlands 2 fan, you don’t have to be afraid that that’s the end of it."

While no additional details were provided, Pitchford also announced that the studio is currently working on an original IP for next-generation consoles.

This is the only season pass where I've felt I've gotten my moneys worth.

Good bye, GOTY editions. Welcome, multiple "Seasons", $30 each. I just hope this doesn't starts a trend.

I love how people are complaining abot it gettng more DLCs... By complaining, I take you're already done playing it, so, why let it bother you? A LOT of people are still playing BL2 and are still looking forward for new content...

As long as I have a job, I'll gladly pay for more content, because this game is just plain awesome!

Borderlands 2 is such a great game to play with my girlfriend. The humor is fantastic, the characters are lovable, and who doesn't like watching bandits explode? Really glad to hear Tiny Tina's DLC won't be the last, as it was most certainly the best they have released thus far in my opinion, though Torgue's Campaign of Carnage was pretty great as well.

Personally, I think that if you want all the stuff because you like it, then buy it, if not, buy the DLC that you want and only that. Season pass its a great offer, but you can always buy the DLC separated, You dont like the hammerlock expansion? dont buy it, you are sick of Borderlands, dont buy more DLC, you like it, then support it.

I was hoping a Game of the Year Edition would be coming out after the Tiny Tina DLC. Really don't fancy paying all of that money for the DLC collection.

By this time, they could have made an entirely new game from all of this DLC, holy crap. I'm not too interested anymore. I came for Tiny Tina. 8D

How about some more DLC for the first one.  Its still the best of the series.  Still, Assault on Dragon Keep was a hoot!

I'll not buy the game and then invest any single coin for that DLC scam sh't...

@emperiox They said what was in the season pass. You thought that content was worth the price, and now they're going to go beyond that content and your complaining?

Complain if the season pass content wasn't worth the price, but don't pretend you deserve free crap for no reason, because that makes you a moneygrubbing douchebag too now doesn't it?

@Drew Pierce Nobody is forcing you... so yeah...

@TransvormerSCol Yeah. Such a scam. They should develop enough content for four games and sell it to you for the price of one game. You want bigger better games, but you don't want it to cost more.

So if they only released the base game and never released DLC you'd be happy? Or is it just that you demand free expansions as a general rule?

Sure there are scams, but DLC also allows devs to be able to afford to make games that are bigger, and WORTH more to fans, and get around the MS and Sony fixed price point that would eventually just result in smaller games because of development costs.

Can't, or don't want to, afford it? Then waiting it out is not a bad plan, but that goes for any new release, not just DLC.

@plaintomato

But the DLCs costs more than the main game and the DLCs have less content than its main game. Your paying much more for DLCs than it's really worth.

It's ok when a bigger game costs more, but then with a fair price please. I don't see any fair price in DLC contents. For Borderlands, as example, there are a lot of DLCs to buy and every single one seems not to be worth for its price, compared to Games you can buy for the same price.

 @Poinciana 

You bought the game for 12$, fine. Now buy all the DLCs and tell me how much you payed for that. And remember, without the DLCs you'll not be able to play the game in its entirety.

@emperiox @plaintomato So it's the naming convention you have a problem with? Not the value of the content? You fooled me - with all your "moneygrubbing douchebag" talk I could have sworn you were talking about value.

Now I understand that it's just the NAME of the "Season Pass" that entitles YOU to free stuff. You are so right - for using that name they should just have to cut off game support now.

Anyway, I'm glad your special NFL Season Pass cost you a one time fee for all NFL Seasons Ever.

@emperiox @plaintomato No, it's a season pass, the first season of DLC is over, now comes the second season of DLC, how hard is that to understand? Also buying the season pass gives you 4 DLC packs for the price of 3 and you feel ripped off? I wonder how you would feel if you had to pay the full amount -_-

@TransvormerSCol You're so dumb it's not even funny. The DLC's cost £20 with the season pass for all 4, if you put all 4 together in one package, it's basically a new game, so you're paying half as much for THAT much content. Oh and then replay value, a free extra character that came with season pass, the level cap also increased for free with season pass. You don't think you can play the game in its entirety? Fool, each DLC is definitely worth the price also, you clearly haven't played them. Also people who complain about skins, theyre 0.79p on steam last time I checked so um... whats the problem again? Didn't know people couldn't afford to buy a bar of chocolate.
