Borderlands Online Cancelled, As 2k China Has Closed

Take-Two interactive has officially cancelled 2K China. The studio, based in Shanghai, employed around 150 people so as to develop a new multiplayer game based on Gearbox’s popular shoot-and-loot series made for Asia, however the game is not currently under development. In addition, its developer, 2K China, has closed.

Parent publisher Take-Two Interactive has officially announced that,”At this time, we can confirm that we are closing 2K China. We determined that the additional time required to finish current projects at the studio, particularly Borderlands Online, would not yield a favorable return on investment.” The company has also said that,”The closure of 2K China does not affect the company’s office in Singapore, the testing group in Chengdu, or the NBA 2K Online team.”

In-order to expand the opportunities of business in Asia, Publisher 2K has reported that it will come up with other alternatives and currently, a new Borderlands game is in development at Gearbox and is being made specifically for next-gen. Take-Two Interactive said that in a statement,”We are working with affected staff to identify other opportunities within the company where possible.”
