2K Australia not ruling out Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PS4, Xbox One

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel may currently only be in development for last-gen consoles, but that doesn’t mean that a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release can’t happen in the future, according to developer 2K Australia.

When asked about the possibility of a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release, 2K Australia’s Tony Lawrence told GameReacterTV: ”I guess we’re full on developing the PS3, 360 and PC game, and we believe in that too.

“All the Borderlands 2 players are playing on those consoles. That’s the choice they’ve got. So we want to reward those guys. If fans say ‘hey, we’d really like this on a next-gen console’, well, we’ll think about that, but right now we’re concentrating on the consoles we know.”

“The vast majority of our fans still have their Xbox 360 [or PS3],” Gearbox’s Borderlands franchise director Matt Armstrong added. ”The other thing is it’s the middle game in a trilogy. Moving it on to next-gen and requiring people to buy new hardware to play the middle entry in a trilogy feels a little disingenuous and we sort of want to respect that.

“As we said, one day maybe, I don’t know. We’ll think about that, see how people react to the game, how much fun they have and whether or not everyone moves on to the next gen fully next year. For now we’re pretty happy with our choice and I think people are going to be to.”

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set to launch October 14 in North America and October 17 in Europe for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

2K also released a 14-minute long video of The Pre-Sequel‘s E3 2014 gameplay demo:
