Borderlands 3 will almost definitely be happening, given just how successful the first two have been. In case you’re doubtful, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford teased Borderlands 3‘s existence in a recent interview
When asked if Borderlands 3 might be releasing soon, Pitchford responded by saying “probably not.” However, he did say that there will be “almost certainly be more Borderlands” in the future, although it is not clear when another Borderlands game will come out or what it will even be called.
Probably not. It depends on how you define soon. There’ll almost certainly be more Borderlands, but we need to figure out what that is. I don’t even know if it’s Borderlands 3, but yeah. There are people working on Borderlands things for the future at Gearbox but we haven’t announced anything yet.
And why would it be called Borderlands 3? What if it’s Borderlands 4 – there’s already been three Borderlands games. What if it’s Borderlands 5? What we call it and what it is are things we care about and we’re engaged about but it would be irresponsible to share anything at this stage, because almost certainly anything we’re thinking now is going to change between now and when we commit ourselves.
While this isn’t exactly new information, it is nice to know that Pitchford and Gearbox still have Borderlands 3, or whatever it will be called, on their minds.
