Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the latest game from Gearbox Software, which is technically-speaking the middle game in the Borderlands series (what?), is set to land on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this Fall. Meaning that those who ditched their last-gen consoles would have to miss-out on this pre-sequel, or at least that’s what we thought. Speaking with Gamereactor TV, 2K Australia studio head Tony Lawrence, shed some light on a possible latest-gen port if the demand was there.
“If fans say, ‘Hey, we’d really like this on a next-gen console,’ well, we’ll think about that,” Lawrence revealed.
It seems a fair few developers are a bit dubious about the user base of the latest gen consoles meaning that they’re strongly considering whether it’ll be worth spending the extra money and development time on bringing their game to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is something that rings true with Gearbox Software who think that it’s a little too soon to commit to latest-gen.
According to franchise director Matt Armstrong, “requiring people to buy new hardware to play the middle [game in] a trilogy … feels a little disingenuous.” But depending on the demand for the game, it could happen. “We’ll see how people react to the game, how much fun they have and whether or not everybody moves on to the next gen fully next year.”
