Borderlands 2 announced

2K has officially lifted the lid on a sequel to 2009’s critically acclaimed Borderlands.

Due out in the publisher’s FY2013, Borderlands 2 is currently in the works for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms, and is scheduled to be shown off at GamesCom and PAX Prime.

Developed by Gearbox Software, the sequel will feature fresh skills, characters, weapons, as well as all-new enemies, locations and equipment.

The announcement follows months of speculation on a follow-up, and comes hot on the heels of yesterday’s inside scoop from Eurogamer that a formal reveal would be made ‘soon.’

More as it breaks.
