Thanks to Steam leaking it early (and now it's been taken down), it's basically confirmed that Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary is a new DLC coming to Borderlands 2.

From the Steam page description:

Return to the award winning shooter-looter for a new adventure that sets the stage for the upcoming Borderlands 3. Sanctuary is under siege, the Vault's map has been stolen and a toxic gas is poisoning Pandora. Fight new bosses, explore new zones, get new loot (including an entirely new tier beyond Legendary) and join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on a deranged villain hell-bent on ruling the planet

Returning players can pursue an increased level cap of 80, while newcomers can automatically boost to level 30 and dive straight into the action.

Thankfully, you can't hide much from SteamDB which shows the name and details being removed to get it hidden on Steam. This showed a release date of June 9th, although that may have been a placeholder.

The big collection of Borderlands 2 plus a load of DLC and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is currently on a ridiculous price on Steam. So if you're still on the fence, this is probably the best deal you're going to get.

For the Linux version, we're still a little bit behind. Aspyr Media did the Linux (and Mac) ports and we're currently waiting on an update to the game to support the newer Ultra HD Texture Pack. Aspyr Media confirmed they're on the case but no update to share at the moment. Hopefully they will have it all ready in time for Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary.

Thanks, ResetEra.

Looking forward to this! Also to BL3, despite the asshole move made.

This must be played! One of the very best coop games available on Linux.

Making it Epic store exclusive, presumably.

Epic exclusive

Quote]In any case, Borderlands 3 hits the Epic Games Store on September 13th and will later find its way to Steam in April of 2020.
Makes me go back in forth in buying it or saying 'Fuck You' to the creators and not buying it.
As it is: No linux version is a no sale right away.

Yeah, this is very unexpected considering they're making BL3. BL2 was released in 2012, 7 years ago, and they STILL make DLCs! That's a Paradox level of dedication I admit. Hopefully it will be ported/whitelisted (aren't DLCs just content by definition? They shouldn't need porting technically) by Aspyr shortly.

It all depends if the base game needs updating to accommodate any new possible features. Since we're already behind on patches, it might not work unless Aspyr get the update out first.

Quite possibly my favourite game ever. Ever. I'll get this at full price if it's native, in which case I need to dive back in and get reacquainted

Tired of waiting on Aspyr, I installed the Win version to play on Proton in anticipation---based entirely on rumours---of this DLC. I usually don't mind the way Linux releases come out (much) later than Windows, but not when we're talking about the Borderlands franchise.

This might explain the high definition textures DLC delay. Aspyr sure knew this story DLC is in the works so they might've waited to update the base game and push all this in one go.
