Gearbox may not be bringing Borderlands 3 to this year’s E3, according to the latest rumors.
Earlier this month, a huge leak from Walmart revealed a ton of unannounced sequels to games, including Gears of War 5, Lego DC Villains, a new Assassin’s Creed game, and Just Cause 4. At least one of the sequels listed in the leak has been confirmed, with Bethesda revealing that Rage 2 actually exists. Now, though, it seems that the list may not be entirely accurate—or, at least, contains games that won’t be showing up until long after this year’s E3 is over.
According to Shacknews, a Gearbox Software representative announced to a “room of journalists” that the Borderlands series won’t be showing up at E3 at all. Instead, Gearbox Software will be showing off some “other titles.”
On one hand, this source might be a little sketchy. We’re pretty sure that Gearbox is working on the next Borderlands game, from its past job listings that were hiring for an “unannounced AAA FPS/RPG hybrid” that used “comedy writing with respect for a serious underlying plot” and is from “one of 2K’s biggest franchises,” and it’s possible that the representative just wants to keep the game under wraps for a little longer. On the other hand, it’s entirely possible that Borderlands 3 is still in very early stages of development, and there might not be anything for the developer to tease at E3 just yet.
Either way, we’ll find out at E3 2018. The gaming conference kicks off in almost exactly one month, running from June 12th to June 14th.
