You've read our latest preview. You've seen the latest batch of screens. Heck, you've even sang along to the latest Borderlands 2 trailer like you're watching The Lion King in your PJs as a child all over again. Now it's time to get the lowdown from Gearbox CEO and candid chatty man, Randy Pitchford.
We caught up with the Gearbox chief last week to talk about how they approached the sequel, how they intend to reach new audiences with their Borderlands sequel and whether the art-style last-minute switch in the original was one of the biggest risks in his career. Of course, this is Randy, and getting off-topic isn't really an unknown phenomenon, so see what he had to say about "suits," alienating existing fans and much, much more. You'd be a fool to miss it, seriously.
Borderlands 2 is scheduled for a September 18th and September 21st release in North America and Europe respectively.
