Borderlands 3 Mentioned

Gearbox Software lead writer Anthony Burch mentioned they are already toying with ideas for Borderlands 3 on The Totally Rad Show. This is noted on MP1st, where this relieves their concern that Gearbox "will ever let the fans of Borderlands get to see a third installment of this franchise," since Borderlands 2 shipped almost a full two weeks ago. Thanks VG247.

Typically the guy I play with is a sniper and I'm almost anything else, so games are easy. The problem is we both started solo with snipers, and he was level 11 before I started so we just created new characters. He went Commando, I went Gunzerker, so we should be using the same weapons. Making things worse, at this point we both enjoy sniper rifles and I spend most of my time with pistols that have high damage, high zoom and decent sized magazines, so we're overlapping a bit and not maximizing our characters. I'll give him preference for snipers and shotguns, he doesn't use pistols so I grab them, and no one uses assault rifles or machine guns (whatever that one class is.)

I think they kind of forced everyone to start using sniper rifles more by making everything so fucking retardedly deadly. Other than the gunzerker, nobody can afford to be in close range with enemies, because you'll just get brutally murdered by even 3 mooks at the same level you are.

The only real damage protection you have is to fight at range which means: Sniper rifles.

I'm actively forcing myself not to snipe as the zerger, because otherwise I'd really just be playing the same character like three times in a row...

I wonder if the game and its new systems got extensively playtested. If so, how did they not see that everyone just started sniping?
