Okay, we all know it's a dog-eat-cat world here in game media land, but for goodness sake. If you see the headline: "Next-Gen Borderlands Title to be Announced This Year", you'd expect that something about Next Gen Borderlands might crop up in the story.
Nah, what you got is this: "We're working on next-gen. Platforms TBD. We'll probably announce something later this year, " a tweet
from Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford.Pitchford has already said,
, "I'm not going to fuck around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3. Look. We know we want it and we know it should exist, but we don't know what it is yet. But we are doing things in Borderlands that we'll announce soon, that are good, and that I think people will be really excited about if you love the franchise."
So on we go, none the wiser... except maybe about the media. Let's leave the last word to Pitchford - he's referring GameSpot not IGN.
"Ever wondered how to fabricate a "news" story from arbitrary, disconnected comments and tweets? Here ya go: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/borderlands-dev-will-probably-announce-an-xbox-one-ps4-game-this-year/1100-6418698/
