Borderlands "Has No Competition", Says Randy Pitchford

In a recent interview with Gamasutra, Gearbox Software co-founder Randy Pitchford revealed his surprise that no one else has copied the Borderlands formula yet and explained why they decided not to create a game like Call of Duty:
I would argue that Dead Island follows the Borderlands formula despite it emphasizing survival and melee weapons, and really, the Borderlands idea comes from the general grinding formula of Diablo. For four-player cooperative modes, a few rounds of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer fits the bill nicely.
But if it's seen strictly as a four-player cooperative FPS RPG, then it's true—Borderlands 2 has little to no competition. It remains one of my most anticipated titles this year, and I've already blocked out several weeks in September after its release date on the 18th. (GR Community playdate?)
