Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel not as big as Borderlands 2, may not be full price
Gearbox president Randy Pitchford says "We're still getting a grasp on scope," and mentions that "it should be priced correctly."
The size of the game world for upcoming Borderlands game, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, is bigger than the original but smaller than Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford says. In a new interview with PC Gamer, Pitchford pointed that fact out and said, "We're still getting a grasp on scope."
"It's pretty big. I don't think it's going to be as big as Borderlands 2. It might be as big, or a little bigger, than Borderlands 1," Pitchford said. "It might be kind of in between the two."
Concerning the price point for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Pitchford said the final decision is up in the air and will ultimately be decided by publisher 2K Games.
"As far as price point goes, I don't think that's set in stone yet. It should be priced correctly, so we'll have to see what happens in the market and understand the actual total value proposition that's being offered," he said. "But I'm the developer. The guys at 2K will figure that out."
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launches this fall for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Gearbox is serving as co-developer on the project alongside 2K Australia. The studio is also working on unannounced new games for next-generation consoles. Pitchford said recently that the studio will "probably" have a new game for new consoles to announce as early as later this year.
