We heard the name of The Borderlands 3 for the first time in February 2014 and that too was not something to look forward to. Gearbox had said back then that they were not working on the next installment in the series.
However, this was followed by the release of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and their comment started making more sense after it.
Now that we are (mostly) done with The Pre-Sequel, don’t you think it is time for a full on sequel to the main series?
Apparently Take-Two Interactive agrees!
The publisher recently held their latest earnings call for the third quarter of the running financial year, this was followed by another reveal from the president of Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. Karl Slatoff.
He, in a one lined comment, said that The Borderlands 3 was going to say goodbye to the last generation of consoles because it was being developed “specifically for the next generation of consoles.”
So yes, this one is going to be the opposite of what the last installment in the series did; you are looking at at PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release this time around!
This is not the first solid evidence that The Borderlands 3 (or whatever they decide to call it) is actually in development. It was expected to be revealed at PAX South but that didn’t happen; so Randy Pitchford took it upon himself to get us acquainted with it.
He posted that they were hiring people to work on the next Borderlands game – and that was enough for us to start speculating.
We are not sure when the game will actually hit the racks, but the release date won’t be too far away now that we know the platforms it is coming to.
