Randy Pitchford, head honcho of Gearbox Software is an angry man, not only because he worked on the stinker that was Duke Nukem Forever (had to) but because Eurogamer spoilt his super awesome surprise by leaking the existence of Borderlands 2 yesterday. Not that it surprised anyone. Really.

According to the game’s official press release, “Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.”

The game will be in playable form at Gamescom 2011 and in case you can’t make it for that expo you could always pick up the September issue of Gameinformer that’s guaranteed to have a serious amount of dope on Gearbox Software’s Role Playing Shooter.

Borderlands 2 will release sometime in 2012 for the Xbox360, PS3 and PC.
