Gearbox: Borderlands 2 is a "no-brainer"

But nothing planned yet, says Neumann.

Gearbox creative director Mike Neumann believes the likelihood of a Borderlands sequel is so strong it's a "no-brainer".

"Yes, I can probably confirm that there's a chance of a Borderlands 2," Neumann told VG247. "I mean, with anything, especially a new IP, if people want more and you can make more, and everybody can make money and do good business there, it obviously makes really good sense to do that.

"Obviously nothing so far is planned. We're working on DLC. We haven't really had any talks about a sequel, other than water cooler talk like, 'Wouldn't this be cool' kind of stuff.

"But yeah, Borderlands is really exciting. Everyone here loves the franchise, and it seems like the public is really coming back with praise and love. So yeah, if everything makes sense, Borderlands 2 seems like a no-brainer to me," he added.

Borderlands, an eye-catching role-playing shooter, launched on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in October. The charm of an endless randomly generated levels and loot mixed with adept co-op for four people is strong.

The game expands on 24th November with DLC add-on The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, which brings new quests, enemies and loot to the table.
