Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, has taken to his Twitter account this evening to answer dozens of fan questions pertaining to “Borderlands 2”. When asked whether the game would ever receive any additional character classes by way of DLC, Pitchford today responded, “Yes, we’re working on it”.
This is a very definitive statement. In the past the developer has only said that additional classes were a possibility based upon the performance of “Borderlands 2’s” first downloadable class DLC, the Mechromancer. That has now changed since Randy Pitchford is officially telling fans on Twitter that the game will indeed see more character class DLC packs.
“Borderlands 2” shipped with four initial playable characters. Earlier this month, the release of the Mechromancer class DLC gave players access to the game’s fifth character. Apparently Gaige the Mechromancer performed well enough that Gearbox Software now officially has plans in the works for additional class DLC releases.
“Borderlands 2” is now available on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
