Borderlands is one of the most unique and beloved franchise to come around in recent memory, with both the first and second game being loved by both gamers and critics equally. So, it’s only natural to assume that a 3rd game in the franchise would be released sooner rather than later. According to Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, however, it appears the project isn’t off the ground yet.
Speaking with Polygon, Pitchford said the following: “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 what Borderlands 3 should 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 f**k around with you like Valve does with Half-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.”
Well, it looks like it’s still a while until we get Borderlands 3, but there is some Borderlands goodness coming this year. Telltale Games is working on a game called Tales From The Borderlands, which will feature current and new characters from the series that will be released in an episodic format that the developer is famous for. It won’t be the style of Borderlands that everyone knows and loves, but for now it will have to do!
