Borderlands Is Being Considered For Linux
Gearbox Software is currently evaluating consumer interest in bringing Borderlands 2 to Linux.
Randy Pitchford, the President of Gearbox Software as the game company behind some of the Half-Life expansion packs and the Brothers in Arms franchise, is currently exploring the possibility of bringing Borderlands 2 to Linux. Borderlands 2 is an action role-playing, first person shooter that premiered for Windows in 2012. Borderlands 2 was very well received by Windows gamers and has also ended up on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 along with Apple's OS X. Borderlands 2 is powered by the Unreal Engine 3 game engine.
Randy mentioned in a Tweet on Friday night, "It seems reddit wants a Linux port of Borderlands 2. I'll probably chat with some folks on twitter about that this weekend."
While that seems rather positive for Linux gamers, in a follow-up Tweet, Pitchford mentioned, "who said there will be a Linux port - I just want to learn more about customer interests there."
We'll see in the months ahead whether a native Borderlands port comes about for Linux and SteamOS. You can learn more about the game at Borderlands2.com and the video that's embedded below.
