Borderlands 1 Will be Remastered Only if Handsome Collection Is Successful, Gearbox
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection was unveiled by Gearbox just a few days back, which includes Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
As good as the collection is; fans were surprised by the exclusion of the first entry from it, which many claim to be the best one in the series.
Gearbox has been listening to the fans and has stated that it will only bring Borderlands 1 to new-gen machines if the Handsome Collection is wildly successful.
The statement comes straight from the CEO, Randy Pitchford, who while speaking at the PAX South panel stated he does not want to announce things anymore “unless he knows for a fact they are going to happen.” He continued on to hint at the possible next-gen port for the first Borderlands.
I love Borderlands 1 and It’d be awesome to get that on next-gen sometime. If The Handsome Collection is wildly successful, that increases the chances that that investment can be made.
The upcoming Handsome Collection is not a bad deal by any means, as players will be getting their hands on two full games along with their respective DLCs. If you are into co-op games, then the Borderlands series is a must play.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will make its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 24, 2015.
