At PAX East, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford kept it simple. "It's no secret, obviously there's going to be another Borderlands." The long-awaited followup to 2012's Borderlands 2 is sure to excite fans of the series, especially those who weren't satisfied with 2K Australia's Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Though we don't have a release date, it'll likely come some time within the next 2-3 years while the developers shift focus from Battleborn.
Despite this confirmation, it's not certain that the game will in fact be called Borderlands 3. "We don't even know if we're going to call it that," Pitchford quipped, "we could call it Borderlands 4 for all we know".
We do know a little about the team involved, however. Gearbox's Chief Creative Champion Mikey Neumann, who also voices Scooter in the series, will be writing the game. Meanwhile, Battleborn's art director, Scott Kester, will take the same role for the as-yet-unnamed sequel.
If you're playing Battleborn in the meantime, be on the lookout for Easter eggs. Though the main game only includes eggs from the previous Borderlands games, Battleborn's creative director acknowledged the possibility of including references to the future game in various upcoming DLC.
So sit down, boys and girls, Marcus has another story for you.
