Borderlands 3 Frequent Asked Questions

No official announcement has been made, but Gearbox President, Randy Pitchford, has  confirmed that the game is in development. Also David Eddings, the original voice of Claptrap, spoke about it during a VO panel.

Borderlands 3 will be made by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. The original Borderlands and Borderlands 2 where also developed by Gearbox however Borderlands the Pre-Sequel was made by 2K Aus.

Although we know the next Borderlands is in development there has not been an official announcement or set release date.  However there is a rumor when Borderlands 3 will be coming out.

Gearbox Software is targeting the current console generation (PS4 & Xbox One) for Borderlands 3. A Nintendo Switch version was being talked about, but that discussion stopped for some reason. Obviously they will be doing a PC version, however its unsure if there will be a Mac or Linux version of the game like with Borderlands 2.

The next Borderlands game will be running on the Unreal Engine 4. Just like previous games Gearbox will add some of their own  tech to the game, some early examples where showcased at GDC 2017.

During the tech demo Randy Pitchford mentioned that their tech would also work on different environments/planets. Not confirming that this would be the case in the next Borderlands but he does puts it out there. However the Borderlands Easter Eggs in Battleborn suggest that the vault hunters will travel to another planet.

No, Borderworlds is a collaboration  app where users can share fanfict.

While the Gearbox Developers probably have some cool ideas for PvP modes in Borderlands this hasn’t been announced yet. The Tweet where Randy Pitchford mentions that the Borderlands Engine only allows up to 4 players on the same team was a joke. Randy confirmed that it was a joke on Twitter.

Unknown. No such mode has been announced or hinted at. There is a current trend in Battle Royal modes, if that’s still the case when Borderlands 3 will be released has to be seen. Randy always says you should play to  strengths and currently I think online multiplayer isn’t one of them.

There is a rumor that Microsoft acquired the exclusive marketing rights. This would only mean that Microsoft will promote the game. You will still be able to get in on the other platforms. I would like to point out again, it’s a rumor.
