Borderlands Publisher Delays Next Entry in a Major 2K Franchise

It’s a take two on that release window.

One of the biggest franchises from publisher 2K has been delayed until 2020.

Parent company Take-Two Interactive Software released the information its latest earnings report, revealing that a game that was set to be released this fiscal year has been pushed back.

“The highly-anticipated title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises, which had been planned for release during the current fiscal year, is now planned for launch during fiscal 2020 to allow for additional development time,” the report states.

Previously, we speculated the upcoming title – which was announced during an earnings report from last year – could be a new BioShock game, after reports suggested 2K’s work on the currently codenamed Parkside could be the next in the BioShock series.

It seems equally likely the secret project could be a new Borderlands game, especially now as Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford has recently stated Borderlands 3 won’t be appearing at this year’s E3 conference.

Whatever it is, it’s not likely to hurt Take-Two’s back pocket too much considering Red Dead Redemption 2, from Take-Two subsidiary Rockstar Games, is still on track to arrive in October this year. You can find everything you need to know about that upcoming sequel here.
