Borderlands 3 Isn't Happening Any Time Soon


Borderlands 3 Isn't Happening Any Time Soon
And while this prompts much weeping and gnashing of teeth, there’s a perfectly good explanation for why B3 isn’t in development yet: Time. Gearbox are some busy dudes, with nine chunks of Story DLC down, a vita port in the works and a particularily promising collaboration on the boil. Gearbox CEO President type Randy Pitchford sat down for a chinwag with Polygon…

“We are not working onBorderlands 3… That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn't aBorderlands 3.

When you think of whatBorderlands 3should be, it should be massive… It should be bigger and better thanBorderlands 2.It should carry forward the story. It's probably crazy multiplatform, depending on timing. It would have to be a next-gen game and a current-gen game, if it was coming at any time in the reasonably near future.

We love Borderlands, and we know customers do too. So we will be doing more in Borderlands. But the thing that, when you think of whatBorderlands 3should be... No. We are not developing that right now. We don't know what that is yet. We can imagine what it must achieve, but we don't know what it is yet. I'm not going to fuck around with you like Valve does withHalf-Life 3.Look. We know we want it and we know it should exist, but we don't know what it is yet. But we are doing things in Borderlands that we'll announce soon, that are good, and that I think people will be really excited about if you love the franchise."

Those aforementioned ‘things’ include a vita version of Borderlands 2, their final piece of DLC Sir Hammerlock Versus the Son of Crawmerax and their most tantalizing project, a collaboration with Telltale Games, Tales of the Borderlands.

Telltale’s story driven mastery coupled with Gearbox’s industry leading humour? Sign me up. NOW!
