Gearbox isn't done with Borderlands 2. We can't know for certain what the studio has planned now, but they've begun teasing something potentially big via an official Twitter channel.
The Twitter account for KRIEG (or just "Krieg") has been seeing some odd updates over the last few hours. For those unaware of the significance here, this is how Gearbox typically makes Borderlands 2 announcements: pretend the Twitter account is being "taken over" by someone.
Here are the three teaser-tweets (can't believe I just typed that out) in question:
O*h# dea&R. I so!!!!!!ething s*7eems to be happ#83ning— KRIEG (@ECHOcasts) April 24, 2013

YoU WANNA know wHo I AM I will SHOW YoU WHo I AM— KRIEG (@ECHOcasts) April 24, 2013
Actually, I'm less interested in who this fellow is and more curious as to what "NIPpLE SaLAds" are. Hell, I wouldn't mind knowing why s/he's typing like a high schooler using AOL messenger in the '90s.
What does it mean? At the very least, we're expecting a trailer for a new character, but here's hoping for something more. A new campaign might be nice.
Either way, we'll keep you all updated on the situation. For now, Gearbox gets to be cheeky.
