Borderlands 2 Development Complete

The Gearbox Software Community Portal announces that development of Borderlands 2 is complete, and the role-playing shooter sequel is off to certification for approval for release. This includes word that they've moved on to production on the Mechromancer content that will be released as free DLC for Premiere Club members, saying this should come roughly 60-90 days after the release of the game itself, which is still almost two months off:

Today, we have some exciting new to share about Borderlands 2 -- the game is headed to certification!

This means that the game’s on-disc content has been locked down and will be thoroughly tested to ensure it is ready for release -– in other words, the game is finished and we cannot make any further changes to the game. As such, the team is now shifting their focus towards post-launch efforts, including the Mechromancer: the new character class that will be released as FREE downloadable content to members of the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club roughly 60 to 90 days after launch.

The Mechromancer is just one of the many bonuses for members of the Premiere Club, which can be joined by pre-ordering Borderlands 2 from a participating retailer in advance of its release on September 18 in North America and September 21 Internationally. For a list of those participating retailers and more details about Premiere Club benefits, please visit our Borderlands 2 FAQ and borderlands2.com/preorder

On behalf of everyone involved in the development of Borderlands 2, thank you for your love and support -- your passion for what we create is what fuels our effort!

ochzentay4, you get the same play time that the single player campaigns of Modern Warfare offer as an add-on (or dlc) for $10 or even less (e.g. Steam sale). I think that's fair, although of course not every add-on/dlc is worth it. And the FEZ guys WANTED to sell it on the xbox, they actually spat on the pc market. Check the news here from yesterday or two days ago. I don't pity the FEZ guys, they got what they asked for.
Yes you are right. Any CoD is short. But I spent 10 bucks for the games. $10 bucks. And never bought DLC. And FEZ guys, yes they got what they asked for. I still think $40.000 for a fucking patch is ridiculous. They shoud sell the game DRM Free or on Steam for 5 bucks and they will fill with money.

Dude, they signed an exclusive deal with MS and regret that now. That deal expires in a few months so they can port the game to Steam or wherever.

It's like... you're trying to be obtuse.

Also, even though the program is code-locked as it were, it's still undergoing shitloads of beta testing for a few months, regardless of "certification".
