Borderlands 2 is finished, DLC started
Gearbox has said today that they finished up Borderlands 2, and have sent it off for certification. That basically means it's one step away from going gold, which is when it goes into full production.
Even more interestingly, Gearbox said that since they've finished up with the main game, they're moving onto working on DLC right away.
"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 first Borderlands had some of the finest DLC ever made, and is an upstanding example of how DLC should be done. I'm excited to see what they do with the second game, aside from the already exciting Mechromancer class.
Not sure how to join the Premiere Club? All you got to do is pre-order the game!
