Gearbox are “ready to start” on Borderlands 3

borderlands 3 gearbox studios randy pitchford

It’s getting on for three years since Borderlands 2 was released. In that time we’ve had 12 bits of DLC, a pre-sequel, and even a Telltale adventure game set in the Borderlands universe but no straight sequel.

Gearbox announced at PAX over the weekend that they’re finally ready to begin.

“People think we’re already working on a new Borderlands game,” Randy Pitchford, Gearbox’s CEO. “The fact is we aren’t but we want to and we want to get started soon.

"There's literally nothing to tell, but we're ready to start."

Pitchford suggested that Borderlands 3 will be significantly larger than the previous games and the studio will need to hire a lot more staff to make it happen, saying "We want to think about the future and we want to think about what the next Borderlands is and we're going to need some help.” Gearbox have posted a stack of new jobs to the jobs page. they’re looking for everything from writers, to artists, to server programmers, to level designers so if you’ve been wanted to break into the industry it’s worth having a look.

Gearbox are currently wrapping up work on the remastered Homeworld games, which will be out this February, and quietly working on Battleborn.

TBH personally I'm a little Borderlanded out. I've hardly touched the pre-sequel and haven't bothered with the telltale game.

I appreciate that's probably just me though.

Same here, but never really got that interested in the pre-sequel or the telltale game. An actual part 3 made by gearbox, that's a completely different story.

Borderlands has always been a favourite for me, with hundreds of hours into Borderlands 1 (whole campaign with 3 great friends in the same room), 60 hours into Borderlands 2 with completion of true vault hunter mode as Gaige, Only 1 play through of the Pre-Sequel so far, mainly because I have been slightly preoccupied with work (as well as Dragon Age Inquisition stealing a lot of game time), loved the 1st episode of TellTale's Borderlands :)

In truth I feel over-addicted, Borderlands was the game for me thanks to its entire campaign multiplayer, and even now I look with envy towards the Chinese for Borderlands Online (even with the graphics being similar to that of BL1 the idea of playing with 8 or even more friends sounds so good, hint hint BL3), and was already questioning living over in HK/China after finishing Uni XD

To me this news thread just tells me that Gearbox has got down and started developing another game I will burn maaany more hours into, along with plenty laughs over the game mechanics with friends as well as the storylines :) BL is part of me nowadays, and I don't know if that's a good thing. All I know is that there's more to come ;)
