The potential release of “Borderlands 3” has been discussed by Randy Pitchford. According to a report from Gaming Bolt on Feb. 15, the founder of Gearbox Software stated in an interview with Polygon that the development team is currently not developing a third main installment of the series. You can take a look at his comment below:
We are not working on Borderlands 3. That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn’t a Borderlands 3.
Randy Pitchford believed that “Borderlands 3” must be “bigger and better” when compared to “Borderlands 2,” while continuing the story of the series. The potential sequel would have come out on next-generation systems and current-generation consoles if it were to be released in the “reasonably near future.” You can find a set of “Borderlands 2” screens with the slideshow to the left side of the article and the rest of his statement below:
When you think of what Borderlands 3 should be, it should be massive. Pitchford continued. It should be bigger and better than Borderlands 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.
The founder reassured fans that his company won’t take the same approach as Valve with “Half-Life 3” in regards to tormenting their community with the lack of an official confirmation. He knows that the demand for a new mainline “Borderland” title is there but they currently have no plans to develop it just yet.
Instead of “Borderlands 3,” Gearbox Software is collaborating with Telltale Games to release “Tales from the Borderlands,” a cinematic adventure game. “Borderlands 2” was released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. A Playstation Vita port will be coming out later this spring in North America.
