A third proper Borderlands game is not currently in the works at Gearbox Software, president and CEO Randy Pitchford told Polygon during a recent interview.
“We love Borderlands, and we know that customers do too,” Pitchford told Polygon. “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 fuck 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.”
According to Pitchford, while the team sorts out the next move for Borderlands from them, they do have some announcements in store that will excite fans of the franchise. So what, then, is keeping Gearbox busy if not Borderlands? Two original IPs for next-gen consoles, Pitchford told Polygon, along with Furious Four, a new Brothers in Arms game, and the new Homeworld title.
As for anyone desperate for more Borderlands, there’se always the upcoming Telltale collaboration, an arrangement Pitchford says he “couldn’t say yes fast enough” when proposed the idea.
