When the successful Borderlands 2 was put on sale, Jack the Handsome – his main villain – enjoyed such prominence that even seven years later, it is almost impossible to get rid of him. So, in Borderlands 3, where the Calypso brothers are markedly bad guys, we’ll have several references to Jack. Although it does not appear physically in the video game, actually. This is explained by Randy Varnell, producer of narrative, Gamespot (eye, spoilers below).
” Jack the Handsome is dead ” explains the creative, implying that there is no way to bring it back in any way. ” But it was a complicated decision, because he is a great villain. When we decided to bring new villains to Borderlands 3 … we had a lot of Jack stuff. If you like Jack the Handsome, you’re lucky because there’s a lot of content where you can play like him and enjoy it. It is too important for this universe to not mention it again. But we want to make sure that the Calypso brothers, the new villains, can keep the guy on their own. & Quot ;.
