Borderlands 2 is most likely getting a sixth playable character, according to Gearbox studio head Randy Pitchford. This would be the sixth character in the game, after the four on-disc and pre-order bonus Mechromancer.
In regards to the promised level cap increase, which is proving trickier than anticipated, Pitchford urged patience. "News as soon as we can," he said. "Sorry I can't offer more yet - I get skewered when things change in development, whatever the reason."
