No Comment 49 Views

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection has just been released. The new pack for PS4 and Xbox One consoles includes remastered versions of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, however, the original Borderlands is not featured in this bundle.

Though, it does not mean that the shooter from 2009 will never be launched to PS4 and Xbox One. According to the CEO of Gearbox Software - Randy Pitchford, if The Handsome Collection turns out to be successful, the decision-makers at the publisher 2K Games may consider launching the original game to new consoles.

"The fact that The Handsome Collection has Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2 means there's still that original game that isn't on next-gen yet," Pitchford sated on the latest episode of the Major Nelson Radio podcast.

"If this is successful, I'm sure the folks at 2K, the people that care about publishing and figure out how to get content in customers' hands if customers want it, will be noticing that. And I'd love to have those conversations about how to bring Borderlands 1 to next-gen."

According to Pitchford, one potential problem is that the original Borderlands runs on a different game engine than Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel. This means that there would be "some work involved" to get the game running on PS4 and Xbox One. Nevertheless, Pitchford claims that Gearbox could overcome these technical issues.

"If (The Handsome Collection) is successful enough, there might be a way to justify that," Pitchford said. "And I really hope that's the case. I'd love to have my entire Borderlands collection on next-gen."

Presently, you can watch an unboxing video for the game's super-premium bundle which features a remote-controlled Claptrap.

Currently, Gearbox keeps working on its new multiplayer games Borderlands 3 and Batteleborn. In addition, the studio said that they would love to create a new Brothers in Arms game.
