    What a disappointing announcement. Prequels/bridge titles are typically done to save the developers coming up with worthy leaps forward for the franchise - scenarios, levels, weapons, story/character elements don't need to be fresh, in fact are welcomed not to be, as a "nod" to the game it's leading to...most prequels come a few games into a series, usually after the biggest hit when they can't come up with stuff good enough for a whole new title

    Warning - comment contains spoilers for Borderlands 2 and Arkham City!

    BL1 was a good game but the story was a bit meh. With BL2 they nailed it and Handome Jack is probably in my top 10 anatagonists of all time! Guess they realised this themselves, and much like WB worrying how to follow Arkham City after killing their main and best antagonist, decided to follow up with a prequel to avoid it for the time being. Lazy writing, but I'm happy we're getting more Handsome Jack!

    Might have finished with the mountain of BL2 DLC by the time this is released.

    Can't wait to experience this with a FOV slider. (I played 1 and 2 on console).

    Ugh, prequels. Hopefully the game will be good enough to make up for it. I very much enjoyed the second game, the first? Not so much.
