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!

Here it goes:
1. They plan to release a new class for few people after launch (probably 2hrs later not 60 days...) despite being on paper/planned (and/or probably being on disk) before release. Its like From Ashes from Bioware (they gave it free on Digital Deluxe or Collectors Ed, I dont remember) clearly cut from the main game.

2. They announced that they are working on future DLC instead of polising remainging bugs (we all know this game will have many at release date) and/or rewarding Day 1 players with more suculent content. If DLC is planned, all Day 1 copies should include coupon so they end up with at least 2 fre DLC instead of crying why people who buy the game at later date, pay 5 bucks, get the whole game/all DLC. Those "Premiere Club" DLC are clearly CUY OUT FROM THE GAME.


Not going to respond to all your points, but if you're going to speculate might as well come up with some good speculation. Let me try...

They plan to release a new class for few people after launch (probably instead they'll come find my mother and sleep with her).

See? That's way more interesting and based on just as much evidence.

You're also assuming they don't have a team working on other bugs. They may not, but claiming they don't is pure speculation as well.
